Two Frenchies @ Bishop Street, Georgetown, Penang.

At first glance, we thought the place offers a dog-friendly space (or maybe dog cafe) due to the cute French Bulldog logo but a quick check on the menu only to find out that the place is peppered with numerous French classics like Duck Confit, Croque Madame, Quiche, Creme Brulee etc; and for the fact that most items are priced below Rm 30, it's hard to find better gourmet deals in town. Step in the place and you will find yourself in a modern air-conditioned restaurant with cozy, homey atmosphere; the friendly servers will then greet you at the entrance, in which one of them speaks fluent French. While the bistro has a good variety of savory options, the sweet selections are equally mouth-watering. Two Frenchies now occupies the shop at Bishop Street which previously housed Goh Kaki and Route 9.

Croque Monsieur (Rm 16.90)

Tarte Aux Pommes (Rm 16.50) + Vanilla Ice Cream (Rm 2)

It's hard to Cheese Lovers like us to resist Croque Monsieur, Turkey Ham-stuffed Sandwiches slathered and baked with Cheese. The combination speaks for all; but mind you, it might be a little hefty for one to finish entirely, it's always good for sharing. If I must nitpick, it would be the Toast... a little too soft to our liking, Panini works better in our opinion. For sweet ending, we had Tarte Aux Pommes... Apple Pie served with Vanilla Ice Cream. Sweetness was perfectly balanced in this case, the Apple carried a tinge of sourness but perfectly balanced by the creamy Vanilla Ice Cream, a very contenting dish to be shared amongst friends.

  1. Aha! Turkey ham, I like, Pork ham even better...not those chicken slices they try to pass off as ham at some places.

  2. There's nothing comparable to melty cheese and toast.

  3. I have no problem finish that portion of Croque Monsieur by myself :P

  4. I think you meant ciabatta instead of panini... but a village bread/
    Sour dough would be more authentic for this euro classic
