Love the ambiance for Norm Micro Roastery as it certainly do have the Australian industrial factory vibe. High ceiling and best of all it is not hot in here. I am impress with the generator in here.

Norm Micro Roastery menu

Norm Micro Roastery menu is pretty straight forward and I am here for their coffee as for Penang standard I think they are quite there. (Please we cant compare to KL ones.)

norm cafe

Had hot latte @ RM 13 and Ice Long Black @ RM 9. Long black is the acidic version not really to my liking. Their late is not too bad as the milk is just nice yet not too overpowering or milk to cover the coffee.

latte

Love their Mocha @ RM 13 .Thick enough with well balance of flavor.

Prawn and Pumpkin Risotto

This is their signature item. Prawn and Pumpkin Risotto @ RM 32. Stock use was perfect and cook to perfection. Moist enough yet it is not dry. Clams used were fresh and it had a good balace of flavour.

Was told that the Spaghetti Bolognese is the other guy’s favorite. He will try to order this whenever he is here.

chicken burger

Chicken Karage Burger @ RM 25. Very generous piece of Chicken karage. I mean it is really huge. For girls, I would advise you to share. Chicken karage nicely fry up. Slight crips outside and with a multi tower fresh fried wedges. brunch in penangI guess if you are looking for a best cafe in Penang?

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.

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.

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?
