Macallum Connoisseurs @ George Town, Penang


So on my third cafe in Penang, came upon this on Christmas day. Honestly, the biggest cafe I have ever been to. It's huge!

 So this place is about 8,000 square feet thats really big enough to actually have big events here.
And it's all in one place, the cafe, an academy, restaurant, brewing process, etc.

So when you walk in, the counter will be just right in front of you.
And look at the pictures below, that is how spacious the place is.





     
So the place is so big that they have certain markets from time to time.
And I was lucky enough to see one of these.

Right corner of the counter.



     



Everything looks so pretty, I KENOT.
Spent too much at Boracay and left me broke the rest of the December month.

I really like this section that they have.
You can also purchase them.

     

They of course, do also sell cakes!

Alright. Here is the Macallum's Breakfast MENU!!!
I wanted to try their lunch and dinner menu also but well, stomach can only fill in so much.








     

Iced Mocha - RM 14.00
Enough chocolate and espresso in it.
It was a hot day so ice blended it is!

Macallum Matcha Pancake - RM 18
Spread with matcha buttercream, topped with azuki bean paste, homemade cinnamon biscuit crumbles, and red velvet crumbs, served with matcha buttercream and azuki bean on the side.
I honestly am not a big fan of green tea, but it was either this or caramel and I think I had enough of sweet stuff and went for this.
Surprisingly, it doesn't have that green tea bitter taste and the crumbs were delicious! We really lick the plate clean. 

Connoisseur's Breakfast - RM 27.00
Pork sausage, guacamole spread, portobellos, pork bacon, poached eggs, tomatoes, Macallum's house bread and salad.
The pork sausage was super filing and the portobellos were delicious!
I love everything on the plate. Seasoning done right.

 Potato and Egg with Bacon (Pork) - RM 18
Baked croissant with Macallum house spread topped with frisée, pork/chicken/beef/turkey bacon, and sunny side up eggs, served with truss tomatoes and grilled potatoes on the side.
MMM... Croissant is one of my favourites and my husband and I were sort of snatching the plate over it. Tomatoes were really fresh!

 An Overview.

Overall, it's a very cozy place to have brunch indeed. 
The huge windows that shines in the natural sunlight makes the whole atmosphere very warm. 
Everything is great here, the music, the food, the drinks.
It's one of the definite place to go to.

Ice Cafe @ Lebuh Victoria, Penang

So when in Penang, other than the local food, they have tons of Cafes as well!!!
So when this first opened back then, it has been on my bucket cafe list to go to already.

     
So its the same row as Awesome Canteen, and its located on the firs floor of a shop lot building. So just keep your eyes out for the signboard.

Once you reach up the stairs, you'll see this and just turn to your right.

    

    
So inside, its all very BLUE. Nothing is made out of ice if you were wondering. A lot of props here and there that made it look like you are in an igloo.

So there are actually a lot of seats inside and its pretty long in. I was actually wow-ing my way inside.

     

     

 So there's a lot to see inside, so you can actually pose and take pictures anywhere you like.



So this is the counter which is in the middle of the cafe, you can just take the menus off the counter and decide what dessert you shall have, and order back at the counter.

They too, also sell cakes!

     
Of course the blog post would be incomplete without showing you guys the MENUS!
It's basically ice ice and more ice. Those who are not too keen on cold, bring your jacket along yea.

     

     

     

Ice Cream in a Jar (Strawberry Flavour) - RM 15
They have many different ice cream flavours for you to choose from their menu. 
It had quite a lot of fruits in the jar. Banana, some cube jellies, pineapples, etc.
We were pretty full from a late lunch and so we only had one dessert.

Overall, I think for a hot season, this is the place to be. 
It's cooling, the desserts are cooling as well.
Everything is more than RM10 so for an everyday dessert, no-no.
But for once in a while, good to go.
