Purrfect Cat Cafe, the first cat cafe in Penang, is located at Muntri Street and situated next to Camera Museum. Although I'm not a cat person, but it is okay to visit a cat cafe.

 
Some of the cute cat murals that you can find at the cafe facade. "All are welcome but no doggies allow".

 
Purrfect Cat Cafe sells cat related merchandizes at the ground floor.

 
All the things are cat-related, such as tees, keychains, postcards, hats, mugs, bags, pillows, soft toys, etc.

 

 
Unique cat-themed wall design and decorations at the ground floor. Full of post-it sticky notes.

 

 
On the other hands, the second floor (the upstairs) is divided into two separate zones, the cat zones and the cafe area that is cat-free. You will be briefed on house rules and you have to wash and sanitize your hands before you can take off your shoes and heading on upstairs.

 

 

 
Even the floor carpet is in the shape of cat.

 
There are around nine simple house rules to follow. Do not break the rules or you will be fined. RM 100.

 
Foods and drinks are allowed inside the cat zone, but you cannot feed the cats with any sort of foods. Inside the cat zone, you are also free to interact with all the cats, but you cannot carry them around.

 

 
At present, they have a total of 8 cats in the cat society: Orange, Marble, Molly, Snowy, Nala, Teddy, Leo and Bear.

 
Not sure if these are Leo, Marble or Molly?

 

 
Okay, this one I can confirm it is Bear with unique dark grey fur.

 

 
Teddy. Laying comfortably on the orange foldable chair. Too adorable, too furry and the kimono can only cover half of its body. I can't resist to take many photos of it although it don't really bother me -.-

 
Orange. Super cute and chubby too.

 
Snowy, the mascot for the cafe, also the first cat to reside in the cafe. It has a special pair of David Bowie-mismatched eyes.

 
Oops, this is just a toy cat.

 
Now let's move to the cat-free cafe area. Full of cat-related decorations. Seats are quite limited with cute cat cushions.

 

 

 
And we were lucky enough to be served to sit at this awesome and comfortable corner.

 
Purrfect Cat Cafe serves only simple food and drink. Coffee, teas, cold drinks, small selection of pastries and cakes. During our visit, we did not order any food and drink from the menu. We were here to spend our purchased deal from Groupon, a high tea set which includes a slice of cake or one pastry and two glasses of fruit champagne.

 
Oreo mille crepe (RM 11.90 value). Not an impressive one. Lacks of oreo taste. But a thumb up to the food presentation.

 
In overall, we still spent a good time in Purrfect Cat Cafe although both the mille crepe and fruit champagne weren't up to the expectation. An exciting experience and this is my first time interacting with so many cats. To play with a cat seems simple at first glance, but in fact it is a bit difficult and I failed to spark their interest to play with me. #sweat

Bow before your queen. If not you will knock your head.

 
Have a nice day!

set lunch that worth your money Smile Aug 21, 2014

Categories : Western variety | Café | Steaks / Chops | Burgers / Sandwiches | Juices / Bubble Tea / Tea / Yogurt

Winter Warmers Coffee and Tea House is well-known for their Afternoon Tea. Other than that, they also serve a wide range of tea (iced fruit tea, hot milk tea and herbal tea), Italian coffee and flavoured coffee (rose coffee, green tea coffee, chocolate mint coffee, lavender coffee, etc), western delight, pasta, Belgian waffles, sandwiches and desserts. They are also selling a range of tea and tea sets in their restaurants.

They have now a total of seven branches: six in Penang and one in Selangor (The Curve). So far we only been to their outlet in Gurney Plaza and Queensbay Mall. Both outlet with relaxing and tranquil atmosphere, making it a favourite place for breakfast, lunch, high tea or dinner. Their table setting is another thing that worth a mention, classisc and unique. Flora table cloth is used and they have many distinctive design of tea cups.

Their brand new design of menu.

 
And we just realized they also offer set lunch. Hence, we decided to give a try. Each set comes with a salad, a main course and a beverage. You may also add on RM 4.50 for any of their cake of the day or cheese cake.

 
For the beverage of first set lunch, we opted for their original Green tea. They have a total of five different green tea for you to choose from: moonlight roses, gunpowder, sweet osmanthus, orchid garden and jasmine paradise. We decided to go for the first one.
Moonlight roses greentea (RM 6.90).
An excellent home blends tea creates its sweet and aromatic flavour. A pot of tea with hint of floral flavor and great source of anti-oxidants. The rose fragrance is subtle and the taste is mild. An edible flower floats on top makes a darling decorative touch.

 

 
For second set of lunch, we added RM 1 to change the black tea or green tea to other hot beverage.
Kenya tea latte (RM 7.00).
An elegant and lifely taste of tea with fresh milk makes it a perfect tea. I never heard of Kenya tea or coffee until I read a book by 九把刀 Giddens Ko, 等一个人咖啡 (cafe..waiting..love). This then peaked my curiousity and interest to give a try on Kenya tea latte. And for your information, most tea produced in Kenya is black tea. This Kenya tea latte can be considered as one of the best tea latte I ever had. Smooth and aromatic. Thumbs up. Kenya tea makes good latte.

 
The appetizer - Salads.
Fresh vegetables served with in house dressing. Very good.

 
One of the main course, seafood spaghetti with white sauce (RM 22.90).
Normal spaghetti with generous amout of seafood such as mussels, prawn, squid and scallops. The white sauce is prepared with mushroom slices, topped with herbs sprinkles. Thick and creamy. Be sure to eat this as soon as possible after served when it is still hot.

 

 
Another main course, baked seafood marina waffle (RM 22.90).
It is Belgian waffle, soft inside and crisp at the outside. It is topped with seafood (such as mussels, prawn, crabstick and scallop) and cheese, then, baked. This waffle is quite special because it has seafood topping instead of ice-cream, banana, cookies, honey or jam. Although the baked cheese is a bit too dry, but with seafood it makes an interesting texture teasing your taste buds with every bite. Not bad.

 

 
We added on RM 4.50 for a piece of cheese cake, Lavender cheesecake. 

One of the unique cheesecake we have ever tasted although we were quite freak out about it in the beginning. This cheesecake is quite dense, with Lavender fragrant but not overpowering. It leaves a lingering taste on our tongue that we won't soon forget. We love the scent of Lavender. It looks attractive too, with Lavender flowerettes on top and in between the cheese cake.

 

 
We will definitely pay more visit to this restaurant. Thumbs up.

Winter Warmers at Gurney Plaza....Our first visit to Winter Warmers.

Iced mixed fruit tea (RM11.90).
Served chilled in a small jug and it is one of the house specialty. Slices of fruit such as orange, apple and lemon are added into the tea. Fruit can definitely jazz up any iced tea and this is doubtedlessly one great cold, refreshing drink. Not too sweet. However, the amount of ice cubes is a bit too much and the tea get diluted over time.

 

 
Jasmine freeze tea (RM 7.90).
Refreshing.

 
Fettuccine carbonara (RM 14.90).
Fettuccine is not over-cooked and we like this al dente pasta texture. The carbonara sauce is creamy but not cheesy. Overall, it tastes average to us.

 
Grilled dory fish (RM 16.90).
Better than the fettuccine carbonara. The dory fish is grilled to light brown, then topped with creamy sauce. Fine texture and light flavour. Cold twisty curvy pasta salad and potato cubes are served as side. Overall, it tastes good.

 
Good place for dining.

坐落于 Gurney Paragon Mall 六楼的 Brown Pocket, 专卖咖啡和甜点(crepe, pancake, pizza),尤其是巧克力甜点。咖啡屋的外观很美,都是一大片一大片的落地玻璃。

 
Brown Pocket 里边的设计和装潢也不错。蛮时尚和独特的,尤其是那顶部的灯饰。店中央的柱子,被装饰成一颗灯树,树枝上结满了一颗颗灯泡果实。

 
当这些灯泡亮灯时,是不是意味着果实成熟了?
当你有机会来到这个咖啡馆时,不妨往上一看,可能灯泡是你的奇遇之星,会为你带来一个美丽的下午。

 
店里面积也蛮大,桌椅的摆设特别有用心。不同的角落有着不同的摆设与设计,来迎合顾客所需。有七彩缤纷的沙发单椅(橙色、红色和蓝色为主色),简单的银色黑色钢铁单椅,还有长型的沙发座. 舒适的沙发,让人有一种隔离城市喧闹的感觉。与三五知己坐下来享受下午茶,写意的周末应该是要这样过的吧!

 

 

 
Brown Pocket 是自助式 (self-service) 的咖啡馆,顾客们必须自行到柜台点餐。餐点价目表是显示在柜台后壁上。点餐付钱后店员会给你一个号码牌,随后你可以自己找个心仪的角落坐下等待招待员递上食物。

 
此外,店里还有卖一些看起来都很不错的精品,如瓷杯,手机外壳等。这里也有一些免费供人阅读的书报。等着食物的同时,不妨拿一些杂志来阅读吧。

 
我们点了冷的抹茶拿铁(Cold Matcha latte, RM11.90),因为最近恋上了抹茶。有点失望,怎么好像有点太稀薄,抹茶味也很淡?我只能说这是一个错误的选择?也许抹茶拿铁应该要是热的才比较好喝?

 
Brown Pocket 专卖煎饼(pancakes)和华夫饼(waffles),虽然选择也没有很多,大概六七样左右。因为想要“一箭双雕”,所以我们决定只点一份Banana Duet combo (RM17.90),duet 指的是pancake + waffle。香蕉口味的,还配有香草味冰淇淋。两块煎饼和一块华夫饼搭档着香蕉与冰淇淋,这四个食料所搭配的四重奏,让我们吃得乐在其中。虽然这duet combo的价格不菲。

 
Brown Pocket 的华夫饼都是Liège waffles, 是一种Belgian waffles。这种华夫饼都是里边松软,外边有点脆口的。煎饼也是松软的。嚼劲对我而言,刚刚好,恰到好处。淋上蜜糖的华夫饼,是简单却美味的味觉享受。香蕉的味道很香,当浓厚的香蕉味在嘴巴里盘旋时,带来了不一样的味觉层次感。而冰淇淋,配搭在煎饼上,是一种简单的浪漫。或许,你也会喜欢香蕉与煎饼的共舞,或者,华夫饼与冰淇淋的邂逅。

 
这是我第一次吃到比较不同的华夫饼,我个人觉得有比A&W的好吃。但这是不是最好吃的华夫饼和煎饼,我就不晓得,也不敢说,毕竟我没常吃华夫饼和煎饼。至少还不错。下次还会再来。

Rose Caramel Macchiato 3D OK Jul 15, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café | Steaks / Chops | Noodles

Coffee Chemistry Signature is not just a coffee cafe, they do serve Asian-Western fusion cuisines.

 
We kind of like the simple settings of this cafe, it gives a very comfortable atmosphere.

 
Each table is adorned with a potted flower centerpiece.

 
Rose caramel macchiato 3D (RM 12.90). 
This is one of the popular drink in Coffee Chemistry Signature. Probably due to the adorable 3D art. And so..... I placed an order for this drink and it took awhile for the drink to be served. Doubtlessly the 3D bear foam is pretty darn cute, but this is not my favourite macchiato. This coffee is mouthfeel smooth though, not too sweet, not bitter. But the combination of flavour with notes of rose and caramel just simply do not tickle the taste buds of mine.

 
Passion fruits smoothies (RM 12.90).
Smooth and thick. Dan's all-time-favourite. Healthy, filling and refreshing. A tangy treat right for any time of the day.

 
Carbonara beef bacon mushroom pasta (RM 16).
A fabulous carbonara pasta. Creamy and cheesy, with lots of bacon and mushrooms. Thumbs up.

 

 
Escalope of chicken with mango chutney (RM20).
Quite a thin piece of chicken escalope and crunchy. People like me who do not fond of the texture of bland chicken breast find this chicken escalope pleasing, especially with the mango chutney (good balance of sweet and sour). An appetizing dish.
An escalope is a piece of boneless meat that has been thinned out (source from Wikepedia)

 

 
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Rose caramel macchiato 3D.,Carbonara beef bacon mushroom pasta.
 
Spending per head: Approximately RM30(午餐)
