The Line Sandwich Cafe @ Magazine Road, Georgetown, Penang.

With a name like The Line Sandwich Cafe, one would expect the place to offer a Sandwich-focused menu but in fact, there are only a couple of Sandwich choices on offer. Strategically located at Magazine Road (near to the junction to Macalister Road, Dato Keramat and Penang Road), it is hard to miss The Line Sandwich Cafe; the new kid on the block is helmed by a Chef previously from Ferringhi Garden. If you patronize the restaurant regularly, you would notice some similar shades in both restaurants... from both menu and the interior decor. The menu features a wide range of Western dishes, from the well-received brunch items to full-fledged dining options (more like a restaurant in lieu of cafe)... though prices are slightly on the higher side (compared to most cafes in town). Casual dining atmosphere, genuine offering, impeccable service; this place is worth a visit.

Seafood Aglio Olio (Rm 24)

Portobello & Sausage (Rm 18)

Crepes Suzette (Rm 20)

The Line's Seafood Aglio Olio was a little different compared to others... particularly the introduction of Salmon into the dish. While we enjoyed the al-dente texture of the Pasta, we found the dish a little fishy (stench) probably due to Salmon. It was bearable but that somehow discounted some marks. For light eaters, the Portobello & Sausage works. The Chicken Sausage was delicious.... well-seasoned with an addictive bouncy texture while the Sunny Side Up was well-cooked with runny Egg Yolk in the middle. Not to be missed is the Croissant.... extremely flaky and even better to go with the premium Butter. 

To end, we had Crepes Suzette... a famous French Crepe dessert drenched in Orange-infused sauce. The texture was amazing and the sauce was expertly concocted, it was not too sweet with a delightful zesty end; the Vanilla Ice Cream added a nice creamy, milky touch to the dessert.

  1. I do like a good sandwich... IF it's made on awesome bread.

  2. No relation to Line Clear, I'm sure!

  3. I most probably don't appreciate so much liquid drenching my crepe >_<
