nagore road


Last weekend when I head back to Penang, my friend introduce me to this new place which is Nagore Square. Find that the concept is rather interesting that gives me the feel of Japan where alot of operators operated their business in a cabin space. The place is rather small that you will be running a business with your close up by hosting regulars where you can have a great conversation with the owner. One of the well known player in there is The Inside Bar.

As you can see, each lot might only can house a table or two.

As you walk till the end, you will reach this area which is the most busiest among the rest, where it is flock with alot of younger crowd.

This is their little bar where all the seating area is at the common area.

Most of the crowd here are after their cocktails and known for their The Inside Bar signature Rainbow Shots.

This is their well known Rainbow Cocktail Shot @ RM 38 if I am not mistaken. Well, for this drink it is more like a photo opp. Taste is more onto their coloring mix rather than any taste of alcohol.

This is another well known drink from them where I find it rather too sweet to my liking.

If you are here, there are a few things you need to bear with them.

  1. Space limitation – we are talking about 10-15 tables max?
  2. Service is rather slow – best to order at their bar
  3. The area is very warm, as the operate with small fan

It will be cool if they can add in more industrial fan and with some live band playing over weekend and also Summer EDM music background over weekend.

Although in Malaysia we do not have the famous AquaS softserve at Sydney and I certainly do know Penang have a few softserve Ice cream which is quite interesting. When I was back over last weekend, my friend introduce me to Urban Artisan. Co that do produce some interesting combinations of flavors. By reading some other blogs, certainly believe these owners are creative chaps as the flavors that they have in those blogs and mine is different.

It is a hipsterish place as they do have many corners that Instagrammers would love for a nice creative shoot.

On that day, in the menu are the usual single flavour and do ask the staff what is special for the day as their mix flavours are quite interesting.

Urban Artisan. Co (4)

They have two different flavours on that day as I tried both. Starting off with Natural Taro Yam x Dark Chocolate @ RM 12.90 topped with a piece of chocolate at the side. Love how the twirl of colours to give you a balance of colour. Taste wise, you get to taste both the flavour of taro and dark chocolate.

Urban Artisan. Co (5)

Find that this is the most interesting flavor among the two. Freshy Blueberry x Quenchy Watermelon @ RM 12.90 that topped with popcorn at the sides. Colour of it is definately captivating for any kind of instagram or photoshoot as it is so vibrant. Taste is rather interesting as it taste like bubble gum, instead of the mention flavours.

Then only my sister told me that her favourite is Rabbit Softserve. However she told me not to miss her all time favourite taufufa and soya bean which is at the same shop at different section.

Nyonya Bean’s organic offer fresh home made taufufa and soya bean with its texture is quite interesting. Do give them a try as taufufa texture is so wobbly and taste is so soft that near melt in your  mouth.

If this shop is in KL, they might have a good business.
