15 Grams Coffee Bar @ Mahsuri Promenade, Bayan Lepas, Penang.

One of the first tenants to open its doors to the public at Mahsuri Promenade is Room 18 but it is not entirely a Hair Salon... part of the place is rented out to 15 Grams Coffee Bar, a snug but cozy space housed within the same lot. Like the name, 15 Grams runs as a Coffee Bar so do not expect the place to have a large menu. It does however, have some cakes and pastries on offer. Seats are limited but there are some seating space right in front of the coffee bar that allows coffee enthusiasts to witness the entire brewing process and perhaps, some exchange of opinions with the barista. Also worth mentioning is the Instagrammable-spot right in front of the glass door, the natural light that floods in offers great backdrop for hipstery photos. A pretty cool place for a cup of Joe but might be a little confined to hang out, especially for big groups. Mahsuri Promande is the new commercial building between D' Piazza Mall and Elit Avenue.

Jasmine Tea (Rm 10)/ Flat White (Rm 9)/ Ma Lai Gao (Rm 5)

Chocolate Brownie with Matcha Ice Cream (Rm 12)

Lemon Sponge Cake (Rm 8)

15 Grams Coffee Bar places great attention to presentation and we love the way they presented the food. The seemingly inviting Lemon Sponge Cake was lightly glazed by Lemon Icing Glaze and jeweled with a piece of Honey-ed Lemon. It was moist and fluffed, with the sweet Icing, it carried a warm and soothing sweetness, a perfect item to go with your cup of coffee. For those who with a sweet tooth or simply prefer to have something sweeter with their coffee, go for their Chocolate Brownie with Matcha Ice Cream. The Brownie with dried Cranberries had a slightly chewy-hard texture but together with the Matcha Ice Cream, it was a pretty good combo. The vegetal flavor of the Japanese Green Tea cuts through the chocolaty cake and offers a refreshing dimension to the sweet treat.
