This New Themed Cafe In Penang Will Literally Make You Go Bananas
Posted On June 20, 2019
Lai, I jio you now!
‘Bojio’ gets dropped on the daily, from our closest friends to people
who just want to join in on the fun. And, it can get a little annoying
sometimes. The next time someone says ‘bojio’, direct them to this
banana-themed cafe instead and be like ‘Nah, jio’. Okay, this might be
confusing for non-Hokkien speakers so let’s rewind. ‘Jio’ in Hokkien
means invite while at the same time it sounds like we’re talking about
the fruit, banana. So, whenever people say ‘bojio’ which originally
means ‘why didn’t you invite me?’, it can sound a lot like ‘you no
bananas ah?’ Get it? Now, we shall carry on!
Funky Themed, JIO Cafe.
Was that introduction too lengthy? I know you guys are getting
impatient so let’s get to the main reason for this article before we get
killed! This new banana-themed cafe named JIO Cafe is a brand new kid
in the block, mainly centring the decorations of the place around the
yellow fruit, bananas. You’ll only ever spot the fun combo of yellow and
pink in the cafe!
They have a room full of hanging bananas which you can take amazing
and Insta-worthy photos in, we have to say it’s a pretty good idea
because it definitely hit all the points in our aesthetic requirements.
Looks like some kind of modern art piece!
Moreover, take a dive into their fun-looking ball pit! Or maybe feel
like a princess sitting on the bubble chair situated at the entrance of
the cafe. Both of that sounds very exciting and amusing, ain’t it?
More than just bananas.
You have to drop by for their toothsome desserts too like the
chocolate lava cake, creme brulee and also mango pannacotta. Their main
course choices are surprisingly delicious as well, you can really see
the effort put into every dish and dessert.
And, we want to just shed some light on one of the desserts, that
being the Lady In Red. Why so? Because the presentation of this dessert
is the most enchanting and mesmerizing one. First, they dipped a real
rose into nitrogen liquid to harden it and then proceed to break the
petals onto the plate. Believe me, the process is far more interesting
than how I’ve described it to be. You have to see it with your own eyes,
we don’t want to spoil the surprise for you!
Look out for the banana signboard outside the cafe! Feel free to tell
us the best thing you love about this odd yet creative cafe after
you’ve tried it out. Remember to take lots and lots of photos and hit
