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.
An item stands out in the cafe was their homemade pies series, including Apple Pie which we had no regret re-ordering it during our second visit. “Cooked tender apple slices with a hint of sweet cinnamon baked into a crust that will melt in your mouth”. We particularly enjoyed par-cooked, big chunk of apple flesh. One will easily forget about the mushy version of Apple Pie in a famous fast food restaurant after trying this one.
An Apple Pie is priced at RM12 here but we strongly recommend readers to top it with a scope of homemade vanilla ice cream (RM15). Other pies include Baked Chicken Pie, Baked Pork & Bacon Pie and Baked Beef Pie. Daily quantity is limited.
Other delicacies include all day breakfast, pasta and Asian delight. During our second visit, we opted for a Chinese home cook dish – Pork Ribs set (RM18) with braised pork ribs, blue pea flower, fragrant rice, bok choy, fried egg and sambal.
Similar to most cafes, 20 Chulia Lane offers gourmet coffees made from 100% Arabica beans. (Figure: Cappuccino @ RM10).
As a whole, a cozy cafe to rest your feet, have a cup of coffee and a piece of pie. 20 Chulia Lane Cafe opens daily from 11am to 8pm. Note that it has two closing days – Wednesday and Thursday.
