A visit to Chinahouse is incomplete without a serving of those decadent looking desserts and amongst all the cakes on display, I decided to go for the nutella pave cake.
Pavê is a Brazilian dessert that resembles a tiramisu, but oh so much better! This version had layers of moist, rich heavenly chocolate ganache and is finished to perfection with wonderful hazelnut topping & lusciously rich chocolate & nutella ganache frosting.
The chocolate flavor was really intense and addictive.
This dessert is best served cold as the texture will become too soft over time if stored in room temperature.

We tried the Sarawakian laksa. taste real mild and not close to the laksa we had at Kuching.

來到檳城遊玩當然也不忘探索當地的特色咖啡廳,而我最期待的就是有著'檳城最長咖啡廳'稱號的唐人厝。它是由三間老店合成的一家的餐廳,中間是由一個水池居中的院子(courtyard)銜接,這獨特的設計把唐人厝變成檳城最長的咖啡廳。唐人厝其實是由幾個不同設計概念而組成的餐廳,其中包括了:Kopi C, BTB & Restaurant, Beach Street Bakery, 14 Chairs, Vine & Single, Reading Room, Courtyard & Cafe & Burger Bar, Canteen & Bar, Art + Theatre。那一天我們離開了姓周橋後,便踩單車去到了位於名香泰涼茶鋪附近的唐人厝。不過呢如果從這扇門進入便會倒著走,因為這裡應該是它的後門哦,大多數人都是會從另一扇門進入。因此我即將介紹的各個餐廳次序便會和大家的對調,我們一起來看看吧。Canteen & Bar我們最先進入的餐廳是Canteen & Bar,我相信提供的食物應該是以西餐為主。Canteen & Bar擺放了很多樂器,相信晚上時分會有live band的表演。我們抵達時

我們從頭走到尾,最後選擇了在Reading Room用餐。

Reading Room的桌子是長桌,需要和其他客人share桌子,不過這並無大礙。大家可能會覺得奇怪為什麼餐桌上會有蠟筆呢?原來唐人厝的桌子都會鋪上一張白紙,讓大家在用餐的同時能起筆作畫,很有創意吧!「吃吃喝喝•看世界」到此一遊!❤

本人美術不好,還是寫寫字就好了^_^不忘來張合照:)

男友點的義大利麵是我見過最特別的,連名字都取為獨特祕方義大利麵。

味道不是一般的番茄醬汁,而是類似豆瓣醬的醬料,吃起來有點像肉搓麵哦!最令我驚訝的是義大利麵裡還有茄子呢!

這樣的搭配看起來雖然還蠻奇怪的,但吃起來其實很不錯唷〜

這就是我們在唐人厝的午餐,好吃。❤

原本我想再點蛋糕,可惜不爭氣的肚子吃不下了,只好作罷。

聽聞唐人厝的蛋糕很不錯,我沒吃到真的很後悔啊!><

吃完午餐,大家記得別忘了到樓上的展覽室參觀哦!有點詭異的圖像,不過卻很有feel。大家都會拍照的一角,不可錯過。

每个“空间”都有属于自己的名称比如Kopi C Espresso、BTB & Restaurant
Beach St. Bakery、Vine & Single、14 Chairs、Courtyard Cafe & Burger Bar

相信无论是早晨、午后、晚餐时间抑或接近午夜
不同的时段踏入唐人厝
你都可以感受到不一样的氛围还有老屋给予的情感
唐人厝不但让艺术界多了一个赏心悦目的地方
也让乔治市多了一个可以聚集的地点

个人觉得这道香料搭配酸酐烘烤的鸡肉很赞
外脆可是肉依然多汁,不会烘得干巴巴的
而糙米还加入了一些腰豆、花籽等
配在一起吃很有地中海风格
原以为酱汁是黑巧克力汁会很难吃
没想到搭配起来还真不赖的
三者的搭配变得互补原有的不足
是个很赞的一道菜肴

其实Harissa Yoghurt黏腻程度和芝士差不多
不过却没芝士那么肥腻
个人觉得味道还挺不错的

Since we are dropping early supper time, we didn’t get to wander around very much actually as some od the sections are closed. Anyhow, am still glad to have a quick run through of the available spaces with the first blueish room being something right up my alley chromatically.

Tiramisu
One of the best sellers over here, with the base sponge being soaked with alcohol; but do not put high expectation on the booze flavor part
Apart from that, the cake is good and moist, creamy at the same time with the engaging chocolate bites. Indeed something different from the usual Italian dessert which is much denser in milky cream, cocoa powder and coffee liqueur.
Red Wine Pear Cake 
As you might have guessed it, I pick this pastry out of the compelling ingredient namesake.
You get to enjoy a spongy, sweet and wettish texture, however, similarly wine aroma is not that apparent as well.
Cranberry Lemon Juice 
Chilling and throat-soothing, according to the tiramisu’s prince whose throat apparently has been quite uneasy that night, but luckily, gets mellowed over the lemony zest phew! Obviously another foodie in disguise……………. (=
Caffe Latte 
Not forgetting to complement the night of dessert indulgence with a smooth cup of Caffe Latte; freshly brewed from the gorgeous La Cimbali and daintily crafted with rosette art.
A night of laughter shared over a table of great companions of camaraderie!
C’est la vie………..

The interior and the bar
When you are craving for some sweet-tooth, highly recommend you China House.
With its heritage building in Georgetown, simple decorated with some plants and books for interior, you'll find yourself relaxed and excited for the signature desserts, the cake and the coffee.

However this time we have the opportunity to try out their dinner meal. What to conclude them is simply awesome.
The tender chicken meat and the fragrant pasta oozed my saliva all around.
It's a great place, for couples or friends.

This is definitely a dessert for dark chocolate lovers. It is a good finishing dessert and best served with a cup of coffee or English tea to balance the richness of the chocolate cake. The price is reasonable. This is a great place for friends to hangout.

The shop which my sis friend intro her must go! 1st we just pass by there and searching for the wall picture in Penang, that day weather is hot so we search until half way and have a break in China House. Environment quite good and the food taste not bad too
When go in, u will feel the place is small, actually not, behind till got alot of space and some long table which can fix many peoples. If u are there, dont sit down and order 1st, just go behind and take a look or take photo
Besides that, upstairs got many art picture that let people view it, but upstairs got abit hot. On the table they serve a white paper which let their customer draw or write whatever they want. Tiramisu cake MUST ORDER! *dont forget

the first time i came across ChinaHouse was when my friends brought us there during our cycling-around-George-Town time on the first day of year 2013! we parked our bikes in front of the cafe, and made ourselves at home, toured around ChinaHouse.

ChinaHouse is a traditional compound which makes up of three heritage buildings, linked by an open air courtyard and converted into 14 spaces comprising Food + Drink (Kopi C. Espresso, Beach St. Bakery, BTB & Restaurant, Vine & Single, 14 Chairs, The Canteen & Bar, and Courtyard Cafe), Shopping (Reading Room, The Study, Bon Ton Shop II & III), and Art +Theatre (Art Space I & II, Artist’s Dorm, The Loft, and Upstairs)

it is a looooooong colonial shop lot that has two entrances at Victoria Street and Beach Street respectively. if you enter from Beach Street’s you’ll be instantly mesmerized by the lovely coffee aroma that lingers in the room, which we did. and i’m not even a coffee person. i fell in love with the vibe. hipster, unpretentious and rugged. didn’t stay on for makan because my friends wanted to try GohKaki Cafe which was fairly new in town then. but i made a mental note to self that i WILL be back.

fast forward months later,

i strikethrough ChinaHouse off my list as the birthday girl requested ChinaHouse! and us being the best bffs, granted her wish! ChinaHouse it was!

a table-ful of cakesss!
this’s what lured me to come back too, apart from the coffee aroma.

we were ushered to be seated at Reading Room which was a smoking area. we didn’t made reservation that’s why. but luckily there’s only 1-2 smokers throughout that night!

beside Reading Room, it’s Vine & Single which is more to fine dining kinda style. i saw there’s wide array of wines available. we were this close to dine there as it’s full house at Reading Room! we were definitely no fine dining materials as pathetic portion couldn’t feed us well and prim and proper ain’t our th’ng! we are bubbly and LOUD! luckily few person left in time {Penang} Dinner @ ChinaHouse, Victoria Street & Beach Street

BTB & Restaurant on the other hand serves Asian & Middle Eastern cuisine while American and Mexican cuisine can be found at The Canteen & Bar.

since it’s our first time here, one of the berry accommodating and friendly male wait staff recommended us few dishes.

Crushed Mint & Lime Soda | RM 10; Pineapple, Ginger & Lime | RM 10; Pineapple Mint Tea | RM 10

my suggestion, just go straight with Pineapple, Giner & Lime next time. this pineapple juice was so refreshing with fade hint of sourness (lime) and spiciness (ginger). i didn’t know pineapple and ginger would work so well together!

however, if you’re a mint lover, you might prefer Crushed Mint & Lime Soda, because it’s berry minty (certainly not for me) and if you don’t quite like the idea of having ginger in your drink, Pineapple Mint Tea might be right for you. but it’s just tea with slight hint of pineapple, in our opinions.

the wait staff told us that the portion was good for sharing, so we ordered a salad and two main dishes to be shared among four of us as we wanted to save our stomach for desserts!

this salad had grilled prawns, cherry tomatoes, mango & avocado cubes, pistachio and drizzled with basil dressing.

one of the best salad i have ever had!

it’s everything what a salad should be, light and appetizing! i love how they have multiple texture on the plate, mushy soft (mango & avocado) interlaced with hard (pistachio) & crunchy (leafy vegetables). and the serving was generous! prawns were fresh as well.

the price was on the high side obviously, but they were pretty generous with the ingredients! just that we can’t really come here frequent. our wallets would wail in blood wtf.

Ginger Bud Pesto with Grilled Chicken Breast Spaghetti | RM 30

one of the main dish we had was chicken spaghetti tossed in spicy ginger bud pesto and topped with grilled chicken breast.

this dish was a mistake. biggest mistake of that night. my eyes skipped the word ‘bud’, i thought it’s spaghetti with ginger pesto =.=. to me, ginger bud is as smelly as parsley, basil, coriander, and chives (i know these smell heavenly to you, but it’s atrocious to me) :/ that’s why i rarely eat asam laksa.

all four of us thought that ginger bud was too overpowering, and my gfs are those who love smelly grasses. it’d be better if they tone down the ginger bud as i like the spiciness (my tolerant to spicy is high though) in this pasta.

however if you’re a ginger bud avid lover, you might wanna challenge this dish.

the chicken breast was tender and not dry!

Chicken and Mushroom Pie | RM 30

chicken and mushroom pie served with mashed potato and mixed leaves.

glad that this dish made it all up! the pie itself was crisp and airy! and the filling inside was creamily tasty, loads of mushroom and chicken chunks. mashed potato was good too! not berry smooth and creamy, but i like it this way. i couldn’t remember what’s the reddish sauce and how it tasted like though.

another main dish that the wait staff recommended was Chicken Schnitzel (RM34) which we didn’t order. you can try ordering that if you likey fried chicken chop!

and then it’s dessert time! we had such a hard time choosing two cakes out of the many cakes on the table =.=

SeakFen & i chose this as we wanted something light and not cloyingly sweet. our Passion Fruit Coconut Butter Cake came toppled {Penang} Dinner @ ChinaHouse, Victoria Street & Beach Street

it was buttery and had desiccated coconut all over it.. it’s not really soft, a little stiff for a cake. it was all good for the first few mouths and it gets more and more jelak after that as it’s cloyingly sweet =.=. even the sourish passion fruit couldn’t neutralize the sweetness

the other cake that we ordered however..

Italian Cream Cake | RM 12

was good! doesn’t looked appealing but it’s a better choice, by HuiKee & LeeChing! the cake frosted with cream cheese was airy and not overly sweet!

We ordered the Tiramisu cake which come up in a larger portion which surprise me. The cake is well served with chunky nuts on the top and the creamy creams by the layer. It is full of indulgence and the cake is simply lovely with lots of nuts covered in it.. I love the cold texture of the cakes when it is being served and I am falling in love with it for sure.Taste : 5/5Price: RM 15.00
