It was one evening when we had an appointment at food truck corner of Chulia Lane (Lorong Chulia). As usual, we departed early to avoid traffic,jam, so early that we had enough time to visit both Kuan Yin Temple and 20 Chulia Lane Cafe (GPS: 5.41901,100.33768) before our appointment. The cafe occupies ground floor of Penang Hainan Tan Clan Association. Parking-wise, not sure about you but we were grateful that we usually found a slot along the narrow Chulia Lane.
With modern and relaxing ambient, Carbo & Bites (GPS: 5.33890,100.30478) can easily give visitors misconception that it is a cafe with gourmet coffee, chicken chop and pasta at minimum but in reality, it is not the case. It only has three Western dishes to be considered as a Western food cafe. So, what Carbo & Bites actually is? Let’s find out.
With restaurants come and go in Elit Avenue, Bayan Baru, Penang, sometimes we think our “Publish this post” button is equivalent to “Close this business” in which restaurants closed for good (for whatever reasons) the moment we publish our post. Break n Eat Cafe (GPS: 5.32211,100.28222), however, is a dark horse.
For people living in the mainland, now you no need to travel across the sea, facing unthinkable traffic of George Town for “sandwich-on-chair” by Loaf U as the cafe now has an outlet in Bukit Mertajam and Butterworth respectively. We stumbled upon Loaf U Butterworth in Teras Jaya Business Park near Raja Uda (GPS: 5.43372,100.38936) when we were hunting for breakfast recently.
If you are like us who miss morning Dim Sum during week days due to 9-5 job, the new Chia Foo Restaurant 吃福餐馆 (GPS: 5.33270,100.29478) at Bayan Point is a great place for lunch in which you can have both Dim Sum and egg noodle/rice set at the same time. Now, how should we classify this restaurant? Dim Sum or “Choo Char” restaurant?
Visiting Penang’s “Avatar” at Tanjung Tokong? Why not stopping by 70+ years old’s Pearl Garden Cafe 海珠屿海鲜 (GPS: 5.46404,100.30792) for some fresh and juicy seafood? Their menu is pretty limited (seriously, we don’t recall they have a menu) featuring simple cooking methods (usually salt-baked something something) with the intention to retain the original flavor of the seafood at its best.
