It is ashamed that half of our life has gone and we still do not aware that there is a shoplot in Island Park – the residential area between Island Glade and Greenlane, not to mention we almost missed The Mideum Coffee (GPS: 5.39125,100.30061) there offering insta worthy waffles.
After Japanese cheese cake, Old Taste Cake a.k.a 鸡蛋糕 (Ji Dan Gao) from Tamsui 淡水 of Taiwan is now trending in Penang/Kuala Lumpur, from the one reproducing the recipe to the one franchising from Taiwan. Each of them is trying to grab a piece of cake while it is still hot. Either case, they share a common phenomenon – a Mekong river-long queue. Today, we bring you to Kulim for “Tam Sui Old Taste Cake Of Taiwan” (GPS: 5.37639,100.53808) – probably the first Taiwan-style fluffy old taste cake in Malaysia.
Passionis (GPS: 5.41453,100.32119) occupies two shops at Siam Road, George Town, Penang with four parking spaces reserved for customers in front. Do not park your car there if you are not intended to visit Passionis as you will probably be whipped by the lady owner. We recently visited it for a unique tea pairing session.

Salted Caramel Matcha Waflle (RM15.90) – one of the best waffles in town. Salted Caramel is the recommended homemade gelato in which we have no regret ordering it as it works well as the “balancer” for the sweet waffle dressing. As for the waffle, we selected the matcha flavor. You can get this premium waffle at Waffle Factory.
One problem of having desserts with a cute drawing made of chocolate syrup like this is that you usually don’t wish to mess up this masterpiece created by the pastry chef until the very last scope of the cake. This is just one of random drawings in Heart & Soul, Sungai Petani, Kedah.
Argh~ who can resist a glass of hot latte (RM8.90) made of coffee bean roasted in-house. The roasted taste is strong with this one! This is the specialty in de nice coffee at Butterworth Business City Center – a new park near Raja Uda similar to Juru’s Autocity.
