Top 8 New Things to Try in Penang July 2019
1. Canning Dim Sum Express Bayan Lepas
Bored of going to the same dim sum spot
over and over again? Don’t worry because the food paradise has just
blessed with another new place to feed our insatiable thirst for dim
sum! Situated at Bayan Lepas, Canning Dim Sum offer plenty of options to
choose from, and you can find only the best and freshest steamed dim
sum and fried dish here. By the way, it is a pork-free restaurant!
Their signature and “wow” dish is the 5 flavours of Lau Sa Pau oozing
with black sesame, salted egg, lotus, chocolate and peanut. Just a very
thin layer of pau with a generous amount of fillings, surely this must
be on everyone’s must-order list.
📍70-1-60, D’Piazza Mall, Jalan Mahsuri, Bandar Bayan Baru Bayan Lepas
Another new brand into the bubble milk tea scene! Sakura Bubble Tea
is the first ever Japanese-Style Bubble Tea shop located in Cubopark.
Their menu features a variety of milk tea with interesting flavours,
ranging from Strawberry and Coffee to local favourite Uji Matcha and
Brown Sugar, Yam and Sweet Potato for the health sipper and Turmeric for
the adventurous buds.
Not to mention, they use the highest quality imported low-fat milk
with zero artificial colourings with meticulously designed from the
inside-out to deliver the finest and best flavours. Definitely a
healthier treat, a break from the usual unhealthy bubble milk tea drinks
we’ve been consuming. Do check them out!
📍 Cubopark @Chusan , Tanjong Tokong, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
Ever since its opening in Bukit Mertajam, people flock to this place
for their unusual flare of cuisine – from the familiar Western food,
Chinese dishes to uncommon Balinese and Portuguese delights. Good news!
They recently opened a branch over at the heart of Bayan Lepas!
Yes, you no longer have to dread going all the way to Bukit Mertajam
area for appetizing and mouth-watering food that Uncle J Cook Book has
to offer. One of the must-order dishes is definitely their Crispy Itik
Tepi Sawah, the crispiness of the skin and also the flavour will surely
make you craving for more.
📍Summerskye Residences, No. 1-1-30 8, Jalan Sungai Tiram, 11900 Bayan Lepas, Pulau Pinang
Located at Noordin Street, you might miss this new cafe out due to
their small signage. The interior of Tastes5 is beyond amazing with old
school design taking over every corner of the cafe. You will have a good
time taking photos for the ‘gram right here! Nevertheless, if you want
to experience authentic Italian cuisine, don’t miss out Tastes5. They
serve up to 10 types of pasta, ranging from Seafood Aglio Olio,
Carbonara and Arabiatta to all-time favourite Chicken Bolognese.
If you’re looking for something fruity, Wow Tea is probably one of
the healthiest options with drinks made from fresh fruits and natural
ingredients. A cup of their fruit tea will make your worries go away,
trust me. Not to mention, their taste alongside its look gives a sense
of satisfaction to tummies and it’s really Instagrammable! Thank us
later for sharing this super cool spot with you!
YuJo Cafe is new in the cafe scene with extraordinary dishes. With a
simple but elegant interior, YuJo Cafe is a comfortable place to dine
in. Some of their specialities include Chicky Rice Bowl, Tomato Tofu
Rice Bowl and Beef Rice. If you’re craving for something sweet, you can
opt for their Kakigori instead! You’ll be spoilt for choice at this
Kakigori spot with the Neslo Gao Gao and Watermelon Kakigorì. The shaved
ice tastes like freshly fallen snow – perfect for this hot season.
📍A2-09 Cubopark 6, 11200 Tanjung Tokong, Pulau Pinang
Another cute cafe and we’re super excited about what this place has
to offer! The theme of the cafe is heavily influenced by the ‘Jio’ which
means the fruit, banana in Hokkien. This new banana-themed cafe is
definitely one of the Instagrammer’s latest favourite spots. Their brand
new space is absolutely welcoming, and not to mention Instagram-worthy
with the combo of yellow and pink colour that make perfect sense
A must-order is definitely the Lady In Red. The presentation of this
dessert is the most enchanting one. First, they dipped a real rose into
nitrogen liquid to harden it and then proceed to break the petals onto
the plate. Trust me, your feed will look so much cooler!
The Warung is no stranger to us as a unique lifestyle store featuring
and sourcing products from local and small brands. But now, you can
immerse yourself in good coffee and sweet treats of waffles here! A
must-order here is the Mango and Berries Fruits Waffle.
The waffle is served with fresh fruits and a scoop of Haagen-Dazs ice
cream dusted with crumbles and drizzled with strawberry sauce.
Definitely, a nice spot to relax and have a cup of coffee here or even
take pictures with their whimsical decorations.
