Chapel Street Cafe @ Medan Lim Cheng Teik, Georgetown, Penang.

This curious black-painted building in the neighborhood (of Medan Lim Cheng Teik) looks severe, especially with a small signage, the suspense gets stronger. Step in the cafe and you will be enwrapped in a heavy metal room (in shades of black and white) with jail door and red bricks, the industrial vibe here in bold. The two-week old cafe has an average-small menu but given that they are still new, the place is worth a second look. Medan Lim Cheng Teik is a small road off Kelawei Road; from Burmah Road (pass by Gleneagles Hospital) to Kelawei Road, make a left turn to the first junction to your left. Go straight and you will find Chapel Street Cafe right in front of you.




Lazy Breakkie (Rm 25)


Scrabby Toast (Rm 12)

Chapel Street's offering is small; we had the only two substantial items- Lazy Breakkie and Scrabby Toast. Both shared the some similarities- sauteed Shitake Mushrooms, Cherry Tomatoes, Scrambled Egg and Toast; both tasted identical but the difference in prices was dreadful.... I paid an extra Rm 13 for a mere Pork Sausage, two slivers of Bacon and a small bowl of chilled Baked Beans. Prices aside, the food was disappointingly average. The Scrambled Egg lacked the buttery aroma and the Toast was too dry to our liking. It would be better if they could serve us some Butter. Both items lacked the "x" factor.
