Keopi Hauseu @ Chime Heritage, Georgetown, Penang.
We could tell that some cafes are striving hard to serve something different and unique than its competitors but they need to work harder and to be more creative. Keopi Hauseu touts itself as a Korean cafe, in which the cafe will roll out Korean-influenced dishes. Full menu was not ready on our visit, we did not manage to try any of their Korean-influenced dishes, rather, the conventional cafe fare. As much as we love the homely interior decor of the place, we thought that they would need to further improve on their existing menu. However, given that the place was still new on our visit, it is still worth a second look.
We thought their Big Breakfast (Rm 18.90) was nothing out of the ordinary. It consists of Omelette, Baked Beans, Bacon, Chicken Sausages and two miserable pieces of Toasts. The Bacon was alright, though we would prefer them to be slightly charred, for the extra smoky touch. Baked Beans were disappointing, they possessed a peculiar flavor that we did not fond of. Further to that, the Toasts were dry and less-persuasive; inferior and substandard. Some major refinement needed.
Yet another disappointing dish- Chicken Salad (Rm 13.90), seemingly stale Chicken slices atop of bed of greens, drenched in ordinary Mayonnaise. Questionable sincerity, we thought they could do more by offering some simple Vinaigrette over the ersatz Mayonnaise.
