Yellow Lips 澳日咖啡馆 @ Lebuh Pantai / Beach Street, Georgetown, Penang. [后宫真’烦--huan'传]
Recently, Yellow Lips which is located at Lebuh Pantai aka Beach Street, Georgetown, Penang is in rage on Facebook. I think it definitely due to its so peculiar name. If you say China House is at the front end of the road, then this cafe would be at the end segment. I believe that GPS could blaze the trail (coz I'm not good at finding directions, probably the road nerd! Haha! I still remember that back in high school, one of my maths teacher told us that road nerds have a high odd to be a beauty, I think she was just trying to imply that she was a 'beauty'. Haha! If this statement is the truth, then I'm also.... haha Okie okie Let's get to the point!
Since I'd become an office lady, I decided to visit different kind of cafes at least once a week to salve my hard work done. On that day was the Hari Raya, instead of lazing in my sofa, we wen to this cafe. You must be curious about why I wrote in Chinese, I also don't know, just 'I got a feeling!'--Black eyed peas.

Needless for any extra description, come and see the pics!
The special remark of this cafe is they sprinkle trifle of sesame seeds onto their beverages. But this idea is not suitable and seemly to everyone as Vicky dislike it haha! However, I like it. This cafe's matcha has a really strong and substantial kick of flavour. Savoury and rich! I think it's better than Miam Miam's. But it is a bit too sweet for me, maybe I don't have any sweet tooth or not an ant haha! But my sis likes it so much!
A day before, I was searching for this cafe and my sis told me one of the blogger claimed that the rice here is not tasty which made me having a second-thought while ordering. Upshot, I think each person has different perspective. Sometimes, don't over-trust others' comments on blogs. Never try never know! To be honest, I'm not a Japan-fan, I incline to Korean food. It's been a long time for Japanese food to have a proper date with my tummy. But this Don changed my state of mind. Talking to the duck slices, it's being well-cooked with the moderate sweetness and saltiness. The fats and soft duck pieces enhance the whole textures. Seems like Macallum Connoisseurs has a competitor here! But both of them serve different style of food. Haha! As for the spa-boiled egg or I call it as poach egg, the egg yolk permeates into the rice and makes it more moisture. I really like the water proportion they cook the rice, texture like that kind of healthy whole grain rice. LIKE! And it is quite big in serving size!
A super flabbergasting dish but in a good way. Each time when I see Carbonara, all that comes to my mind was the creamy milky flavour. But this one, after I ate it, I was obtuse in a great while, then it somehow linked me to the KAYA! Yes that one we spread it on our bangali roti!!! Haha! So special! I miss this already! And the noodles are in al dente texture! GOOD!
So far, they still haven't had the printed menu yet at this moment which makes it even harder to order. And, the toilet is pretty clean here. I really think this cafe serves good food at reasonable and pocket-friendly foods! But here to mention, please check out their Facebook page (link at below) before going. As they will notify whether they serve Japanese cuisine or Aussie one or both.
So sorry, I forgot to take pic before gulping it down my throat. The owner let me have a good try on their Chocolate ice drink, it's good and rich! That kind of drink which kills Mr. insomnia. Haha!
