Huey & Wah @ Belissa Row, Pulau Tikus, Penang.

There is no fancy brunch at Huey & Wah, just some simple and straight-forward regulars' favorite brunch items. They main strength is their artisan Marshmallows but their brunch items are worth a look too... especially if you are on a tight budget. Huey & Wah is not new and it has been a few years since they moved to the present location (Belissa Row) from Straits Quay Marina Mall. They are well known for their Marshmallow-Coffee combination; not being a fan of Marshmallows, I'm reluctant to pay a visit. After knowing they offer Brunch items, I went ahead and checked it out. My experience at Huey & Wah was positive and was deeply impressed with the quality. I'm certainly looking forward to another visit again. Huey & Wah has expanded recently, opening a new branch at Armenian Street Heritage Hotel... but only Sandwiches and beverages are served. 

Moving swiftly on the food, Power House (Rm 12) seems to be one popular brunch item amongst the regulars. It's not a complicated dish nor it's hard to prepare but Huey & Wah did it perfectly. Expertly cooked Soft-Boiled Egg served on a bed of cut Toast with some roasted Cherry Tomatoes and toasted Almonds. The Soft-Boiled Egg possessed the perfect consistency, though some might find it a little under-cooked. We love the combination, especially the acidic-tangy Cherry Tomatoes and the nutty toasted Almonds, everything amalgamated perfectly. The Toast had the right crispy-soft texture either. The Rm 12 Power House comes with a cup of complimentary Coffee/ Tea too. Surprisingly high quality given the price.
