I have heard alot about this new cafe Norm Micro Roastery in Penang. Been one of the buzz since after 2020 MCO last year. Since now I manage to go back, decided to pay a visit to this new brunch cafe in Penang. As This is also associated to their two other entity Norm Cafe and also Noct (pretty well known for their cocktails in Penang standard)
Parking here could be an ass as either you walk far or you pay your fee inside the parking of the new Prestige hotel. I park at open space carpark at Sri Weld Food Court Carpark and walk over. about 3 minutes walk. worth it as better than I get a ticket or got my car tow away.
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.
Raw wall and natural lighting from the top shining thru the roof indeed will be a perfect instragram cafe in Penang.
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.)
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.
Love their Mocha @ RM 13 .Thick enough with well balance of flavor.
Pastries and desserts are base of the availability of the day. Among the 3 was told all of them was like “meh” again I did not try this but base on my sister’s friend that order them.
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 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. I guess if you are looking for a best cafe in Penang? I guess this might be one of them to try out and perhaps to put into your list then. I certainly do not mind to come back here for their coffee and food again next round.
There is no name right outside and the main entrance is at a little hidden kind lorong. Drive slow as you would not miss them.
