Bite Sensation @ Times Square, Penang.
If you are looking for a place with absolutely good ambiance and environment to chill out or spend some quality time with friends or families but are bored of going places like Starbucks, Coffee Bean, you might want to try this place out. Bite Sensation is a newly opened bakery/cake house located at Ground Floor of Penang Times Square, right beside Sweet 16, facing Birch Plaza. The ambiance was so good that makes me feel like sleeping over the couch, there were two couples of couch available just for your comfort. Price-wise, was fair and reasonable, in fact, more economical than chain outlets like Starbucks. Service was good, typically because of a very polite cashier at the counter providing me some useful information. Aside from serving cakes and some awesome beverages, they do sell freshly baked breads and pastries as well but I would like to highlight about their unique and creative desserts to my readers, some of the more special ones are Chocolate Lava (some sort of chocolate brownies topped with melted chocolate syrup), Poached Pear with Wine, and Creme Brulee. They do serve main course like Pizza as well. Prices vary, but they do have some promotions if you wish to savor all these desserts.
There are a lot to choose from for beverages. I had a Lime and Lemon Crush for Rm7.90. The name "crush" is just another word replacing Ice Blended. The drink was a bit sour to my liking, but it works perfectly together with those sweet desserts. Its a slightly pricier if you were to ask me.
Cappuccino (Rm4.90 *price unconfirmed*) was okay, it was topped with some cream and some cocoa powder sprinkled on top of the cream. The coffee taste was not too strong in my opinion, which suits me well since I am not a coffee-type of person and the best part was, this Cappuccino was not too sweet at all.
Creme Brulee (Rm 8.90) was decent, it comes with a generous scoop of chocolate flavored ice cream, laying on a bed of almond flakes and the creme brulee has some blueberries topped on top as well. It was a bit odd as the layer of the caramel seemed to be a bit off-track to me as the whole layer of caramel was solid. As to my understanding, the egg custard should be caramelized before serving and it should not be in solid form. Apart from the caramel, the taste was in fact, very good in my opinion. It was not as sweet as it looks and it has the rich and creamy flavor. If you are a dessert lover, you definitely do not want to miss this place.
