Hideout Cafe @ Icon City, Bukit Mertajam, Penang.

Start your day with a Western-Fusion breakfast or wind down after work with a cup of freshly brewed Coffee at Hideout Cafe; when we were strolling at Icon City as early as 9:30 am, Hideout Cafe was one of the few cafes that operated that early. Early risers will be glad to find out that they have a range of both Western and Oriental dishes for you to kick start your day. If you are not the usual Big Breakfast-kind of person, go for Oriental ones- Nasi Lemak and Chili Pan Mee just to name a few. Seats are comfortably-arranged with ample space in between... suitable for those who wish to visit in a big group.   



We wanted something light and therefore, Salmon Carpoccio (Rm 13.90) became our pick of the morning. Two slices of Smoked Salmon sitting on a raft of fresh Arugula with some sweet-pickled stuff. All elements were nicely matched and paired but we thought the dish was a misnomer. We were expecting fresh and raw Salmon in lieu of Smoked Salmon but probably the latter option would suit the local palate more. A good option to assuage the guilt in the fear of over-indulgence for meat. 


Chamomile (Rm 6.90/ Hot)
