Black Kettle Cafe @ Beach Street, Georgetown, Penang.
The owner served us this set of breads with butter and jam as he said he felt sorry to let us wait for the food (the kitchen was busy due to the crowds and stacks of orders). I'm not an expert when it comes to bread, but I think it was Sourdough. I like their bread, kinda bouncy. The jam is fresh as well not too sweet, I think it's also one of their own masterpiece. They even served us a kettle of warm water as per request, how sweet and kind they were! Superb service! While waiting for our food, we got to use their speedy WiFi to online! Another point added! I really hate to go places which do not provide WiFi and have us waiting like FOREVER!
Softshell Crab Burger (RM 28)
I don't think we had to wait for too long until the food had been served. Originally, we ordered the Salmon Sandwich but too bad their salmon had being sold out, that's why we reordered again and chose the soft shell crab burger. Tadaa~~ This was my first time trying the amalgamation of soft shell crab with burger bun. So excited!!! The first remark is the fluffy bun, I like it so much! I think they spread butter and some sugar on the bun which makes it sweet with the hint of buttery. The lime mayo sauce is so sui generis sourish. The whole flavor is toothsome. But it'll be better if the sauce is being drizzled more. Overall, I like the whole concept of flavor. As for the french fries, I only ate one as I'm not a fan of french fries (calories issues keke). Fortunately, my sis likes to eat it and she finished it entirely and claimed that she wants to order just the french fries itself. OMG! She never cares of calories.

This is what you'll see when you cut it into half. VEGE is my all time FAV!
OK, when someone wants to take your unglamorous photos, just pretend yourself as if you're 24/7 camera-ready! They did provide us knife and fork but I insisted to used the most traditional way (bare hands) to dig in.
Smoked Duck Pasta (RM 28)
Karen's all-time-favourite--something creamy and cheesy which normally is high in calories. I think it tastes delectable, creamy and cheesy just like what I expected. We call it Carbonara as it physically looks akin to this category what. It stated garlic cream. As for the thin-sliced smoked duck, it's not too chewy and hard. The texture is good. It'll be better if it's being involved in this dish more. And maybe a little kick of white wine (not sure whether had they added it but I couldn't taste it thus far.) to enhance the flavor and to make it more one of the kind.
Alright, let's see the interior design. Aiya, I forgot to take pics with the toilet. Hence, this triggers you guys to pay your own visit to this cafe! Muahaha! *evil
One of the owners, she is so nice and elegant! I profoundly feel in this way.
Kindly find the receipt below for your own perusal. (I had already used to write in this kind of formal sentences) Ya, got 6% GST. To be honest, the pricing is slightly higher than the other cafes that I'd been to. Nevertheless, it's always worth for a try as the interior designs are Instagram-worthy!
Thanks the lady owner for this pic!
You should also try their coffee as well as I heard it's quite sapid.
Aside to those who secretly email me to update on my past vacation to Korea, Kuching and Taiwan, I'll try my best to do so! No worry and enjoy your 31st Aug holiday!
