Hana Cafe @ Tanjung Bungah, Penang.

A tea-visitor center is about to open at Tanjung Bungah (opposite Dalat International School) and Hana Cafe is the complementary business that operates under the same roof as the tea-visitor center. While the tea-visitor center is currently closed (under renovation), the cafe is open for business. The cafe has a very cozy setting but the lack of air-conditioners could vex the heat-intolerant. While the cafe is still very new, it does not have much to offer at the moment, with a few choices of cakes and some fresh brews, as well as some snacks to munch on. In spite that there were some hits and misses but the cafe is still very new and the menu is still evolving, the place is worth a second visit. 

We were looking for something light and refreshing for our tea and their Nachos & Salsa (Rm 6.50) seems like the perfect choice for us. It comes in a generous portion but to my dismay, the amount of Salsa does not seem to tally with the amount of Nachos provided. The Salsa, on the other hand, was decent and refreshingly light for an afternoon snack. 

Sweet treat of the afternoon was Apple Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream (Rm 6.50). The Apple Crumble was served piping hot while the two scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream was served on top of the Apple Crumble. We love the intense and remarkable flavor of the Cinnamon and Apple but we thought it was a little too sweet to go together with the Ice Cream. The portion may seem a little small but fair enough considering the price tag.
