Bittersweet Cafe @ Armenian Street, Georgetown, Penang.

*Bittersweet Cafe has since ceased its business operation.*

Near the famous mural art painting at Armenian Street, Bittersweet Cafe is especially worth-visiting for Waffle lovers. Nestled within the new Armenian Suite, the cafe has some really simple but cozy setting for you to wind down. We like the comfortable couches, plushy pillows, spacious seating and brightly lit interior, as though it exudes the warmth of home. On the downside, the place can be a little warm especially on a sultry hot afternoon and can be frustrating for the heat-intolerant. Also, the place does not have much to offer at the moment, their signature Belgium Waffle seems like the only dish that is worth-trying (cakes are likely to be obtained from other source). Nevertheless, this is the place where you can appease all Waffle and Ice Cream cravings, at reasonable prices. 


Bittersweet Cafe's signature Belgium Waffle, served with Earl Grey infused Caramel and Alcoholic Ice Cream (Rm 14.40- we topped Rm 1.50 to "upgrade" for Alcoholic Ice Cream instead of Vanilla Ice Cream). Served fresh and hot, the Waffle came in at an unexpectedly huge portion, we caught in a whiff of the sweet Caramel aroma before it was served to our table. We like the Waffle for being crispy on the edges and soft-pillowy on the inside. However, the Waffle was heavily doused with Caramel and was too sweet to my liking. Also, it is best to be shared amongst a few as the portion may be a little too huge and monotonous for one to finish entirely. Great value for the price.
