Update: Classic Teddy Cafe has ceased its business operations since then.
Show some love to the cuddly London Teddy Bear at Classic Teddy Cafe, 1st Avenue Mall Penang. The newly opened Classic Teddy Cafe is home to the cute and fluffy London Teddy Bear; the place is appropriately decorated to the theme (arguably). Step in the cafe and you will be enveloped in a cute atmosphere... start with the famous London Red Telephone Box, coupled with two big Teddy Bears. Walk straight in the cafe and you will find many Union Jack on the furniture, or at least the color combination that works along the line. While the cafe is named as Classic Teddy Cafe, we were surprised that there were not much Teddy Bears in the cafe- 2 near the entrance, 6 on the wall and some near the counter only; customers were not given some to play with. The menu is small and has little or no connection to the cuties; we thought the offering is weak either (the standard
Aglio Olio Chicken Breast (Rm 18)
Chocolate Walnut Muffin (Rm 6.50) and Long Black (Rm 8)
There were limited offering on our visit, There were only 3 types of Pasta left so we thought it was wiser to pick the safest option. We had their Aglio Olio (Chicken Breast), they were quite generous with the portion but the texture was disappointing. The Pasta was overcooked and the flavor was a little bland. It was monotonous. The Garlic flavor did not stand out and the spiciness was too soft to be discerned. Fortunately, the Chicken meat was nicely executed with a touch of citrusy flavor.
To end the meal, we had their Chocolate Walnut Muffin. The Cake was fresh and moist but the Chocolate element was weak. For Rm 6.50, we thought it was overpriced. We washed it down with a cup of Long Black.
