Ain't the Conventional one . Downtown Art Heritage Georgetown

Yesterday I had a lunch date with Mei Xun. I parked my car at Georgetown and walk around to see is there any nice cafe that we can dine in for lunch.

I guess I'm lucky enough to bump into this new cafe that has just opened two days ago. Sick of those egg benedict, big breakfast, waffle and crepe cake in Penang therefore is so great to be able to find this which are selling more to fusion of Vietnamese and local cuisine. :-)

Love their Lemongrass Soda! Is so refreshing in this warm weather. It is a mixture of lemongrass, soda, mint and plum. It priced at RM8.

Mei Xun's order, Ambarella Mix. Major love to these drinks instead of smoothies that are selling everywhere in Penang cafes. Priced at RM8 as well.


This is one of their signatures.

Nasi Ketuk with Chicken Rendang RM16.90

Love this so much! The Chicken Rendang is so rich and flavourful. Chicken is very much tender and rendang paste is full of spices and slightly towards otak-otak flavour. The portion is very big though.

Have been so long I never tell I will revisit mainly because of a savoury dish. Thumbs up! I sincerely hope they can keep up the standard till my next visit!

You can also try their Nasi Ketuk with Lemongrass Chicken. Something new and special.


Downtown Cottage Pie RM12.90

One of their recommendations. There are mash and parmesan cheese on top of the mince. I would said it is a delicious dish but we both still prefer Nasi Ketuk with Chicken Rendang. :-)


There are still plenty of tables upstairs. The cafe is still in the midst of renovation so I shall see what surprise me during my next visit. ;-)


All in all, this is a pretty decent cafe, not the conventional ones that you find in Penang. Very cozy ambience, attentive and tip top service, price is reasonable and they serve excellent food. I believed this place will soon wide spread by word-of-mouth.

It is located just beside Armenian Street. If you are a Georgetown heritage lover, you will surely recognised this cafe from the picture below. Apparently, it is very near to Khoo Kongsi and Yap Temple. 


I will surely visit again! Highly recommended.
