Brew Cafe (啡礼) @ Autocity Juru, Perai, Penang.

The month of August welcomes a new cafe to the already clamoring crowd at Autocity Juru. The newly opened cafe has quite an impressive interior decor in shades of wooden beam which exudes an enormously pleasing sense of tranquility. The al-fresco dining area allows diners to dine-in amid of a small courtyard, but the heat-intolerant would probably prefer the air-conditioned dining area. Menu is simple and earnest, with a few types of Breakfast dishes and some all-day Mains. Brew Cafe is located near the entrance to "Shop in D'Park" at Autocity Juru. 



We were quite pleased and impressed with the fine-quality of their Aglio Olio (Rm 13.95). Finely minced Garlic was used instead of the chopped version, it was garlicky and spiced up with the generously added Chili flakes. The Asparagus and Eryngii Mushrooms, on the other hand, added a bit of crunch to the dish. Spaghetti was al-dente and we suspected that a small amount of Cheese Powder was sprinkled to the Pasta and given a quick toss. It was not cheesy at all but it has traces of the Cheese Powder over the plate. Nicely done and definitely toothsome. 


A healthier option- Flaming Avocado (Rm 11.95) paled when in comparison with the previous dish. The salad consists of Avocado, Celery, Pear, Beet Root, Sunflower Seeds atop of a bed of Greens. The salad dressing was something akin to Goma Sauce, with a slightly citrusy flavor. Wonderful elements, fresh, healthy but the combination did not really for me. Also, I thought the portion could be larger for that price. 


Flower Tea (Rm 12.95)
