Penang: Sip & Chew Cafe

Front facade, super simple.

Penang: Sip & Chew Cafe – Sip & Chew Cafe is a very very new restaurant/cafe located on Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, or English – Pitt Street. I went there on Christmas Day with Clarice. How I found out about this place is through Instagram where some random people I followed posted about it.

Here’s me and Clarice.

With much curiousity, I wandered around the street to find the place. It took me some times to find it and it’s actually located just next to the famous Kuan Yin Teng Temple. It was night time, and surprised to see the restaurant has only 4 tables inside and 2 outside. I assumed it’s a small scale cafe. Nevertheless, we went in and gave it a try despite the little customers.

The staff was very friendly which worth a little mention. Sip & Chew serves western cuisine and their famous is the sandwiches, but we didn’t order cause I wanted something bigger portion to ease my hungriness.

Potato salad as starter. Yums.
Mushroom soup, which is pretty standard, taste like Pizza Hut’s. =D

We ordered a set of Christmas Set dinner worth of RM24.90 and a Grilled Chicken With BBQ Sauce from the a la carte menu. From starter to main course were delightful, and there’s still room for improvement like the grilled fish with brown sauce was a little bit too salty. Other than that were pretty OK, and the very best part was the Flower Pot Desserts which Clarice and I like the most.

Grilled Chicken with BBQ Sauce which I like.
Grilled fish with brown sauce which is rather salty on my taste buds.
HAPPY POTTED PLANT. Lo and behold, the mighty flower in a pot dessert! What is it? Flower it is, not edible, but the mud, the organics are edible!
Cute! It’s Oreo grinned into powder that looks like sand and at the bottom, there’s ice cream, and a layer of cake. 

The owner told us that the menu will be revised again, and I am looking forward for my next visit for the Flower Pot Desserts again, perhaps try some other food too, sandwich maybe?

Heard that there’s a similar dessert at All Seasons Place, Farlim there, it’s cheese cake instead of ice cream, anyone know about it?
