Gudang Cafe @ Gat Armenian Street, Georgetown, Penang.

The Armenian-district is well known for its mural wall-paintings but there are more and more cafes joining the clamoring scene at the aforementioned area. A short walk from the most happening place in the heritage area of Georgetown... particularly the "Little Children on a Bicycle" wall art at Armenian Street... will land you at Gudang Cafe; a newly opened warehouse-themed cafe. Step in the cafe and you will be wow-ed by the interior. It is almost like time has never passed in the space, a reminiscent how ship maintenance was done during the hay days. The interiors are done with a touch of wooden element; it's old but it feels like it has a lot of stories to tell. Gudang Cafe's menu is small but with a Japanese touch; they are of good value nevertheless (the cheapest Ramen dish starts from Rm 6.80 nett). 

OM Ramen (probably refers to Omu Ramen) is simple but it provides good value, for Rm 6.80; you will get yourself a plate of Yaki-Soba inspired Stir Fried Ramen dish blanketed with an Egg Omelette. The Ramen was alright, though not as al-dente as I would have hoped; the noodles were carefully-seasoned. The Tomato Ketchup-flavor was intense, as though we were having Stir Fried Noodles in Tomato Ketchup. The other toppings included were Chicken, Onions and Mushrooms.
