Coffee Place


Among so many cafe popping out in Penang, I find this new concept Cafe Space 262 坊 at Beach Street, Penang is indeed quite interesting. Combining the best of everyone strength under one roof. I think there are 5 different brands are house in this concept space.

[update 2.7.19 – some of my friends update me that this place got torn down. It was build illegally and against heritage rules] = sad to see but no choice la. heritage zone is quite strict on all expect. ]

This place is not hard to spot as it is just located a stone throw away from China House. Or just right behind the famous 2 kids with bicycle mural site.

Above is before, and as off 2.7.19 is below:

This is what is highly recommended by my sister @kellyBok (instagram) as the little jelly pig in the mud. The jelly pig is wobbly that give you the effect of (boink boink if you shake it). Ordered Latte here as I am lurving it. Little acidic yet with fruity end. Milk is balance well yet not overpowering. Perhaps could be one of the best coffee in my top 3 place for Penang as it suites to my palate.

The cake I think is not too bad yet not the best. just for pictorial purpose then yes. Crust is abit solid as the cake gives me the feeling like 2-3 days old. Well, still one of the best seller as most of the table ordered this.

This is about the famous Burnt Cheesecake in Tokyo Restaurant at Lot10, KL. Who have not tried before? To be honest, I have just tried it since early this year and it is pretty good. Recently, I saw a few friend posted about their new seasonal Green Tea Macha burnt Cheese Cake.

CheeseCake Tokyo Restaurant (1)

a place that gives you a cozy ambiance. a perfect place to chill and chat with your friends. If you do come on weekend, do prepare to queue for an estimated time of 15 – 30 minutes. As most of the people are here for the cheesecake will be seated at the bar area or high bar table. Space is slightly limited as diners just take their time to chill and continue chatting with their friends.

If you are here for their alcohol, they do have draft beer selection as above and some cocktail with Japanese Whisky, sake base. Do check em out.

The original famous Classic burnt Cheesecake @ RM 21. This is their signature 6th Avenue Cheesecake as peeps are just queuing for this. Love the soft creaminess of this. The chill temperate of the cake is just perfect. Not too icy cold nor too soft. Impressive is their silky smooth whipped cream.

This is their new seasonal or limited edition Green Tea burnt cheesecake @ RM 25 (if I remember correctly).

CheeseCake Tokyo Restaurant (4)

Flavors of Green tea is quite prominent, and it certainly felt that they are using slightly premium green tea to make this up. For green tea lover you might like it. For me, I think it is not too bad as I felt that the original taste much better. Could be I had salty lunch before I came over.

If you are a fan of strong cheesy taste, then here would definitely be one of a pit stop for you. Also be prepare to dig slightly deeper into your pocket for a slice of this. Do you think this be the best burnt cheesecake in KL?

overall, I personally like Birch Burnt cheesecake more.

Whats on Tap at Plaza Mont Kiara is one of the newest cafe in Mont Kiara. A cafe that certainly will attract your attention if you work or live around the area. A minimalist cafe of just near pure white that is quite good for photography.

Their counter does look luxurios as with the equipment that they are using you know that they are investing quite abit.

Cakes selection are pretty good too. As most of it does look tempting and we try out Lemon Poppseed. Turns out to be quite good pairing with the coffee.

As was told by the barista, they purposely select these cakes to pair with their coffee. Indeed it goes well.

I think the owner is also a KAWs brand lover. With a poster wall of Snoopy x Kaws.

Whats on Tap (3)

Their specialty here is their single origin coffee and their nitro coffee. I have decided to try out their nitro. Brewed for 24 hours. Not too acidic, smooth body, slightly frutti yet no too caffeine overdose. Just nice for a mild subtle flavour.

Bubble tea fever is high! If you travel to certain countries in Asia, you will get to see bubble tea street. However over the months. Bubble tea industry is taking over Malaysia by storm. Now we do have our own famous bubble tea street in SS15. Interesting enough, some of my friend call it the new Zoo Negara. (just check out the brand logo)

There are alot of brands just fighting over a space in that area and I believe thanks to The Alley who started their first outlet over there and with their succession, they have created a massive competition within 9 months. A space where fill with students where they have a luxury of time yet queuing for your favourite boba is a common thing now.

Whats your favourite brand?

I certainly believe that there will be more coming into the area. What other Bubble Tea brands do let me know.

If you remember that Norm Cafe did make a huge buzz in Penang last year for their 2in1 concept. Cafe in the morning, bar at night. Then I was introduce by my friend to visit Norm that is famous for their waffle and located in different location at Lebuh Carnarvon. It did not ring a bell till I reach the location and find it weird, that it has similarities to the one I visited a year ago.

norm (1)

Until I walk in, the ambiance and lighting do resemblance the NORM at The Saw Emporium. Then only found out from the barista that they have relocate to this new location. Still as small as it is, with only a few table on the premises and if you come here with a big group of friends which are 4 and above, you will have a problem for seating arrangement.

norm (2)

norm (3)

Still the same, as they have their cocktail and tea corner.

norm (5)


norm (7)

this is what the cafe is famous for. Their cocktail and also their signature waffle. If were to compare to last year, the waffle had much improve. Currently it is slightly puffier, crispy and bake to perfection. Indeed a pretty good waffle and best of all, mine is rum and raisin @ RM 22. Top with nice ice cream and rum raisins on the side is a good pairing. Best of all, I pair with their cocktail.

A small little cafe tug in this dead end street. Parking is super expensive for Penang as it is RM 7 (maybe due to Chinese New Year)

A great place for waffle and cocktail. Believe coming in the afternoon will get to shoot nice pictures. Great ambiance to chill and hangout. Love my spot which is just right beside to the main wooden door. Also, could this place be offering the Best waffle in Penang?

Seems like dining at Pokok cafe like the in trend. Pokok is located inside Mahsa University in PJ. The big hype on this cafe is that you are dining in a glass house. Therefore do prepare to get warm and enjoy some sun tanned while dining.

Pokok (4)

It depends on which table you are being seated as it could be very warm.

Pokok (5)

Ordering of food is at the counter and pay there.

Pokok (6)

Menu offering is pretty direct from local to western.

Pokok (7)

Since it is brunch, I tried their Avo Maverick, more like a vegetarian dish @ RM 18. Topped with poached egg, 2 slices of bread, sauteed mushroom with bed of veggies.

Pokok (8)

Pokok (9)

Since alot people order Nasi Lemak and was told Nasi lemak @ RM 18 here is good.

Pokok (10)

The chicken was under cook by 3-5 minutes then we request to changed. Understand they want to get the best texture out of it yet the meat on the bone still stuck on it yet with light blood.

Pokok (11)

Pokok (12)

coffee Latte is decent for RM 10 hot and RM 11 for cold.

Cafe food here is just normal, as I was told the food here is very good. Find that the food is bland and not as outstanding as was told by a few of my friends.

Will I be returning back? I guess there are much better cafe food for the price I am paying, as the only thing is dining in a glass house.
