I am still very much into Penang heritage cafe though currently residing in other city. I got seriously excited when Jia Eian invited me over an awesome pre-birthday lunch treat with 3D coffee art. Just when I was wondering where he gonna bring me to, his car parked at right in front of the cafe. Oh my, the sense of familiarity simply popped out into my mind once we reached 55 Cafe @ Coffee Atelier. Hey there, I actually dropped by a year back [ my previous post ] with my ex roomie! Such a sweet coincidence where I started to busy making pictures with my iphone again.
Well it'd a pleasure as well to see the 3D coffee art even though I don't take coffee nowadays. Unfortunately, all the coffee artists weren't in and I gotta call in a miss. Really disappointed, for a bit until I found this gorgeous shot from Silly Epiphany [ link ] to show you guys. Couldn't agree more with her that how am I supposed to drink it for these extent of cuteness. Laugh.
The cafe offers set lunch at RM 35, including 1 starter, 2 tapas, 1 dessert and soft drink. We are not too keen for the tapas in the drizzling afternoon and the waiter was generous to let us change from 2 tapas to 1 main course instead. Oh love.
As we had two set lunch, thus we chose Mixed Salad with Sesame Dressing for the first starter. Tasted slightly too salty, to me. Still great in overall though.
And Veloute of Pumpkin Ginger for the second choice of starter. So creamy, must try!
Whereas for main course, we picked the Aglio Olio with Smoked Salmon that fresh salmon fillets call the plate a thumbs up!
And the Aglio Oglio with Grilled Salmon which tasted as yummy as the smoked one. What an indulgence to immerse in the spaghetti that came with the richness of extra virgin olive oil. I am a Aglio Olio lover, just in case you didn't know.
Lastly, the waiter was so nice to came over with Affogato where the scoop of vanilla ice cream drained with coffee where I gotta requested him to give me a new one with a scoop of plain vanilla instead. So pain! And this fellow cheered me up to let me photograph mine with a spoonful of coffee. Laugh.
Perfect lunch treat, thanks dude!
ps. ciao, october; hallo, my fav november :)
