Elds 22 @ Gurney Paragon, Gurney Drive, Penang (15) 1

Eld’s 22 @ Gurney Paragon, Gurney Drive, Penang!

Eld’s 22 is the latest new old restaurant in Gurney Paragon, Penang. You might wonder why KayaButter say that Eld’s 22 is a new old restaurant. Previously, this restaurant is called as Jarvie’s and the restaurant changed owner and the new owner decides to retain the same old restaurant but renamed it over his son’s name with Eld’s 22. Of course, the name is short-formed. 🙂 Fret not as the famous ramen burger introduced by Jarvie’s is still in the menu.

The Alley Cafe @ Stewart Lane, Georgetown, Penang (21) 2

The Alley Cafe @ Stewart Lane, Georgetown, Penang!

Kaya was invited by Tour Directions to review one of the famous cafes in Georgetown called The Alley. They are famous for their churros and the one-time craze which Kaya feels that it is getting lesser and lesser that is the cronut, a combination of croissant and donut. Kaya heard from one of the bosses that two pieces of cronut sells for US$30++. That’s how ‘powderful’ (meme) the cronut is. Finally, Kaya get to try it! 🙂

[Invited Review] Folks Cafe @ Lebuh Acheh, Georgetown, Penang (12) 5

[Invited Review] Folks Cafe @ Lebuh Acheh, Georgetown, Penang!

There is a new cafe in the heart of Georgetown, the UNESCO Heritage area called Folks Cafe. Folks Cafe is co-operating with Flash Back Guest House to provide the guests with breakfast, lunch & dinner. Folks Cafe is operated by two partners. They currently do not have any signboard yet. So, for the mean time, once you see the Flash Back signboard, you have reached Folks Cafe. As you drive from Cannon Street towards Acheh Street, turn left when you reach the T-junction. Folks Cafe is at your right. Find a parking space as soon as you turn right or you can try to find parking end of Cannon Street. Finding a parking space here is quite a challenge and expect to walk for a short distance if you can’t find parking near it.

Harvest Times Cafe @ Irrawaddy Road, Georgetown, Penang (10) 6

Harvest Times Cafe @ Irrawaddy Road, Georgetown, Penang!

Harvest Times is another branch of Harvest In that has to be opened to accommodate their ever expanding customer base. Harvest Times is just a stone throw away from Harvest In. You will find a lot of similarity between Harvest Times and Harvest In. And this time the parking space in front of their restaurant is bigger and can accommodate more cars. There is more space for al-fresco dining at Harvest Times.
