I had seen many pictures of this sleek and minimalist cafe in my Insta feed while I was planning for my Penang trip in January. The cafe caught my eyes with its simple menu and food offerings and since it was located just next to my hotel, Eastern & Oriental, I had to drop by.
Flat White (RM 18)
Every cup of coffee is brewed using the prestigious Slayer Steam from USA, a top-notch machine in the world of coffee. They are the first cafe in Northern Region of Malaysia to own this machine, assuring the complexity of the elements such as temperature, milk and flow rate are well taken care of, churning out a cup of good coffee by the experienced baristas here. This cup was robust and fragrant with low acidity which I appreciated.
Matcha Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream (RM 18)
This dish was recommended by almost every blog post about this cafe so being a first timer here, I just could not resist because I cannot resist anything matcha. The portion of the cake is the average lava cake size. Pulling the cake apart, the viscous matcha lava oozed out to our delight. The matcha lava was thick and bittersweet, tasting very authentic. I like my matcha on the stronger side and this definitely satiated my tastebuds.
