Baa Baa Black Sheep Cafe @ Tanjung Bungah, Penang.

Explosion of brunch places opening up in Penang and Baa Baa Black Sheep Cafe is one of the newest members to the food scene. The newly opened cafe proffers a range of brunch choices as well as some pasta dishes. There are also a few mains including steak and lamb chop for dinner-wise. While prices are standard-average, I thought the choices were rather limited, not only for food but beverages as well; nonetheless, since they are relatively new, I reckon we should give them some time? The fully air-conditioned cafe has a simple minimalist decor, though it will be more comfortable if they could spare more distance and spaces between the tables. Nevertheless, there is also an al-fresco dining area for those who prefer a more outdoorsy ambiance. Baa Baa Black Sheep Cafe is strategically located along Jalan Tanjung Bungah, opposite to Dalat International School, a convenient place for you to grab your brunch before you hit the beach. 

Comes in a substantial portion, their Big Breakfast (Rm 14.90) is good enough for two small eaters. It comes with a foot long Sausage, a slice of Bacon, two Hash Browns, two Toasts, Scrambled Egg, Ketchup Red Beans and Stir Fried Button Mushrooms with Onions. The conglomeration seems nice but nothing overly exciting. The only worth-mentioning item will be their Scrambled Egg, which was airy and fluffy in texture and delicately salted, though I would prefer some freshly grind Black Pepper or Herbs for the extra dimension. 

Smoked Salmon & Egg Croissant (Rm 11.90)- freshly made Scrambled Egg and some measly Smoked Salmon bits being stuffed inside a huge Croissant; with some fresh greens dressed with Japanese Sesame Salad Dressing as side. I was not quite impressed with the dish. First, the Croissant was not crispy, buttery nor flaky. Furthermore, the Scrambled Egg was one-dimensional and lacked the kick; the Smoked Salmon, on the other hand, had not done much in its aid due to the measly serving in which I could barely taste it. Also, the overall texture was a tad too dry to my liking; a disappointingly average dish.
