Lavish Fusion Bakery is located at a heritage shop along the bustling Victoria Street and is ornamented with pink walls, plants, and beautiful mural art which depict the elements of strong nature, tropical and beach vibes.
But on the other hand, Wild Berries Lemonade captured our heart with its amazing taste. A taste featuring the sour and sweetness that triggers the senses in unexpected ways, YUM!! Wild Berries Lemonade @ RM 17.20
Roasted chicken Green Curry at about MYR 28.5 where the green curry gravy is served in the very small glass container shown ini the photo.
Here's the location.
Not forgetting to go along with coffee of course. However, today the espresso-based beans have changed to Brazil and Sumatra blend compared to single origin Guatemala yesterday. Prefer the latter’s fruitier taste profile as this blend was kind of bold to my taste bud, hehe.
Lemon (MYR 25) Whipped yuzu ganache lemon and mint insert in white chocolate yellow lemon coating I must say that this was one of the best tangy desserts I had so far in terms of very citrusy pastry, after the vivid decadent memory last had at Bubba’s Gump- not for its prawns but Key Lime Pie, haha!
The thick and fragrant curry, where the fish heads are cooking is said to be delicious. It goes very well with roti prata and will keep you wanting more.
Overall, Living Room offers a nice ambience to dine at. The taste of certain food here is nice especially the Kam Heong pasta and Red Wine Stew Beef which are my favorites. These dishes will be my in my order list when I visit next time.
Do drop by for their cakes, which are made from the heart.
A hugely satisfying option for a sandwich is the Smoked Salmon with Cheese Sandwich – put together with bread made from rye flour (naturally lower in gluten), mayonnaise, and greens. The rye bread is also fitted into the All-Day Breakfast dishes. Why not try the Rye Toast with home-made Nutmeg Jam, and Scramble Egg & Rye Toast?
This is a MUST TRY CHEMPEDAK CAKE!!!
Well, we choose Kim Haus Spaghetti Aglio Olio Chicken (RM 22.90) and it did not disappoint. Spaghetti noodles were cooked to al-dente and was seasoned nicely with a hint of spiciness, then garnished with olives. We were surprised to see generous quantity of big chicken cutlets were served. It was great but the entire presentation or experience would have been better if the chickens were cut into smaller slices. Overall it was a great spaghetti.
Kim Haus is a boutique hotel at Campbell Street (Lebuh Campbell).
Kim Haus evokes memories of its glory days through a gold museum.
Here's the location.
I enjoy having my tea break here trying their lovely and tasty pastries.
The Pain Au Chocolat is one of the must-haves... the pastry will be heated up before serving to your table. It was extremely flaky and easily fall apart at the nudge of the teeth... buttery and crisp.... the combo makes it dangerously addictive. The Chocolate filling was just spot on... not too sweet but good enough to impart a chocolaty touch
Here's the location.
If you are a Mille Crepe Cake fans, then Inherit Taste Patisserie | 承品烘培 which is located along Jalan Imigresen in Georgetown, Penang will definetly get your craving for Crepe Cake fixed.
Indeed, the Mango Crepe Cake looks appetizing the moment it was served to our table. While we both agreed the layering was done perfectly and appreciated the less sweet version of the crepe cakes, the flavour did not bond well to our taste buds. We felt there is a kind of sugary syrup, flavour or perhaps cream that made us feel surfeiting upon consuming. The taste is especially prominent around the area where mangoes are present.
One of the oldest and famous bakery shops is Continental Bakery which located at Nagore Square.
Asked where to get the best and healthiest buns and you'll get a definitel reply, Continenal Bakery @ Jalan Nagor, Georgetown, Penang. This bakery had been in business for a very long time and their 'healthy' bread can rival even Adventist Bakery (famous for their '7-grains sprouted bread' or '3-seeds sprouted bread')!
The Afternoon Tea menu has been launched recently, and was introduced to the media at the relaxed and comfy surroundings of Queen Victoria’s Parlour. The tea sets designed to blend tradition with innovation had us immersed among English tea staples and Ghee Hiang’s signature biscuits and pastries.
Ghee Hiang is a prominent name in Penang, made known for its outstanding Sesame Oil and the de-facto Penang food souvenir- Tau Sar Pneah/ Tambun biscuits but it has got a more ambitious plan for its new branch along Burmah Road. The latest addition at Burmah Road is vibrantly painted in blue-red color combination, the ground floor operates like an ordinary Ghee Hiang biscuit parlor while the upper floor is transformed into a classy-elegant cafe that serves Malaysian-fusion dishes at unbeatable prices. The dining rooms are cozily decorated to suit all occasions and the servers are professionally dressed up; while every evidence gives a hint that the offering may cost a bomb in Teels Heritage Cafe but the true fact is, it is competitively priced just like an average cafe does. Not only does the interior decor is camera-impressed, the dishes are exemplary in their presentation as well. The cafe is just exceptional in every way.
Making sourdough bread is not an easy process despite its simple ingredients as it takes time, patience and lots of love where the “starter” or pre-ferment needs to be cared for and fed at precise times daily.
I always enjoy good bagel, and fortunately this was very good!
Au Meng Kit, Director of Ming Xiang Tai, is riding the wave in the building trend of traditional Cantonese pastry and biscuit industry in Penang. Having founded his first pastry shop on Burma Road in July 2008, the young businessman has since opened several outlets, with the latest on Penang Road.
In the fear of losing part of the traditional flavors as time goes by, Ming Xiang Tai strives hard not only to preserve the flavors of the yesteryears but to pass down the quintessential skills in crafting the traditional Cantonese pastries. With this vision in mind, Ming Xiang Tai has been constantly offering an array of Cantonese pastries and delicacies in all of its branches across Penang island. The Cantonese pastry specialist has been continually receiving positive responses from Penangites since its opening and has recently expanded its fifth branch at Penang Road. If you are constantly on the look out for good Cantonese pastries, do check out Ming Xiang Tai for its wide variety and comprehensive menu.
Of the different kind of breads, we had a Smoked Duck Croque (RM 28) and it was impressive. We enjoyed the Croque that was served warm with fluffy texture, and the classic grilled Emmental cheese and bechamel sauce sandwiched between the croque that gives it a semi-rich sensation. Overall the pastry makes an excellent choice as a to start the day, or even a snack in between the meal. Absolutely love it.
"Les Grains" sure sounds like French but don't be fooled by the name, this newly opened oriental-fusion bakery specializes in baking Japanese-influenced bread and pastries. Bread lovers should not be new to the name- "Four Season" Bakery (previously at Straits Quay)... Les Grains is the rebranded version. All classic items from Four Season Bakery can now be found at Les Grains, everything seems unchanged except... the price tags, expect at least 20-40% hike in prices and for that very simple reason, this could be the most expensive bakery in Penang. Visitors may purchase the on-the-rack products or dine-in, there's a small Lunch menu available daily... featuring dishes like Salad, Sandwiches and Soup. Though dining here could put a dent on the wallet, Les Grains does not skimp on ingredients, the quality is still as superior as before.
The Baking Garage (at Lembah Permai) is not new, in fact, we have been wondering if they would move their business operations nearer to central Georgetown... and we are glad they did! Not only running as a bakery, the new branch at New World Park (known as Sin Seh Kai Artisan Bakery) actually offers a seemingly impressive brunch menu. The kitchen closes at 2:30 pm and by then, only light snacks shall be served (no heavy menu), so plan your time accordingly. It's easy to find Sin Seh Kai, the place is covered in transparent glasses with an open-kitchen, while the other side of the cafe is dedicated for diners dining-in the cafe. The setup is simple and straight-forward but the real pull factor is the wide range of home-made Pastries and artisan bread.
The Baking Garage in Lebuh Lembah Permai, Penang is a favourite place for shoppers who live nearby to pick up freshly baked items. Specializing in producing and supplying traditional, artistic & rustic artisanal breads, the outlet has plenty of goodness to offer. They recently opened their second location in New World Park on Burma Road. Known as Sin Seh Kai Artisan Bakery, the outlet with minimal frills is easy to find with its black signboard adorned with huge gold colored wordings.
Here's the location.
Well, we were intrigued by the Bubble Milk Tea Cheesecake (RM 22). It is expensive but the odd combination of pearls and cheesecake worked well miraculously. The cheesecake was spot on for us - semi rich and dense in texture, though some who used to a strong cheese taste with excessive creaminess would be lamenting after having it.
One of the reason for the third generation to continue the tradition, sourcing for the best ingredient, of going through the cumbersome and energy consuming processes of making these delicacies is because he himself likes to eat and he couldn’t find the ‘traditional taste’ in Penang.
Finally, we had Matcha Crepe Cake and Blueberry Rare Cheesecake. We both enjoyed the lightness of the cake - not sweet, light texture yet flavourful. The Matcha Crepe Cake has a nice work around the texturing and layering, and the Blueberry Rare Cheesecake exhibit a pleasant acidic taste that neutralize its creaminess and sweetness. For once, I could enjoy 2 pieces of Chateraise cakes, or even more after having a satisfying main dishes.
