You would need a pair of attentive eyes when locating this café located at one of the rented bungalows along Jalan Gasing, which most of the time tends to go unnoticed. Or another useful landmark would be Bible College of Malaysia that is seen just across the road. Limited parking area is available at this humble café with as fresco or indoor dining options. It was currently manned by Jeannie, who does both your coffee beverage as well as cooking some delish dishes.The weather was quite gloomy when we dropped by the other day, so indirectly led us into those homey mood. However, do expect only a handful of menu is available as there isn’t much varieties like the usual cafes. As the Oriental-culture implied in its name; Houshuen, there would be an intermix of Chinese-Western fusion, but depending on its daily availability.So for that day, we interestingly paired our Western Coffee with Penang Prawn Mee and Petai Fried Mee. Funny, ice brows raised? Yeah, I know the combination was pretty odd but that’s what available on that day, haha……CARAMEL MACCHIATO (MYR 11)Double shot of sweetened macchiato for your caffeine fix.FRESH PASSIONFRUIT (MYR 10)Made freshly from the fruits itself, rather concentrated as no sugar is added hence much enjoyable with its original taste.FRIED PAN MEE WITH PETAI (MYR 12)Here comes the slightly special highlight here- fried homemade noodles with the pungent beans. Crunchy bites paired with the adequately spiced sit-fried noodle. PRAWN MEE (MYR 10)Another Penang famous delights but enjoying over here at Petaling Jaya. Soup broth is moderately flavoured with prawns taste, coupled with some fish cake, kangkung and chicken breast meat with some own made sambal paste. It was a pleasant bowl of prawn noodle, but I like it to be thicker in consistency wise, like those richer version in Penang. Another Penangite buddy who tagged along this café also lamented the same. Guess any Penangite would have a tad skewered preference when it comes to Hokkien Mee (Prawn Mee in KL is fondly and widely known as Hokkien Mee back in Penang itself)Overall, whilst the menu here are pretty modest, one could still enjoy the greenery and occasional wind at the backyard. Or visit the tea room that is securing a corner further in the bungalow.Cheers for now and Carpe Diem! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤Location: 122, Jalan Gasing, Petaling Jaya, SelangorBusiness Hours: 11am- 6pmWebsite: https://www.facebook.com/houshuenteahouse continue reading
