It was the first time for me to have a meal with Auntie Mei Lay in Penang after hearing mum talk so much about her as she is one of her best friend! When I met her, I totally found out why Mei Lay was so fun, as she is so young in her mindset and takes photos like a pro, finding the light very skilfully, knowing how to pose well, get the most suitable background, and is such a foodie, dines with style in an instagrammable way (meaning, totally the same version of me). She was also outgoing! The only difference with me is that she could go to the same cafe 4 times in the matter of 2 months' of Nov-Dec!
The interior has 2 storeys in the old colonial houses in Penang Georgetown, with the upstairs having a lot of natural air streaming through the glass in the roof that allows for photography. The ground floor looks like a typical bar.
The food is also quite reasonable and has a good mix of pizza, burrito, pasta, big breakfast etc. The only downside is the carpark beside charges RM8 per entry for the night.
Lavender Matcha Freddo
This matcha latte is not bad as I did remind them not to put in too much milk. They also used Matcha powder but I didn't taste any lavender at all. It was unique at being shaken cold so quite worth the price of RM14.90.
Coffee Espresso Chicken
This is my favourite of all the food eaten as they serve genuine cup of espresso as the dip for the grilled chicken which was cooked in cream sauce earlier.
In House Sandwich
It looks quite tasty and big portion. It was supposed to come with fries but we requested for more salad which they served with balsamic sauce which is healthier.
The grilled salmon came in quite a large portion and beautifully made till juicy and not grilled till dry.
Turkey Ham Strips
This is another of my favourite snack or titbits albeit a bit unhealthy as deep fried till super crispy. After all, we always want to have tasty food to make it worthwhile for the calorie intake.
The carbonara was pretty with the bull's eye egg in the middle on the thick sauce with ham and also mushrooms. Simple but you can see the ingredients in the eye which makes it appetising!
As for my OOTD, it was quite wrong to wear my new dark brown dress as it kind of blended into the wood.
