Joies Cafe @ Moulmein Road, Pulau Tikus, Penang.

Started off as a Sourdough specialist, Joies Sourdough has finally expanded and opened a new cafe at the clamoring Pulau Tikus area. Expect the menu to be Sourdough-centric... with various add-ons to the bread; additional offering includes a small variety of Pasta dishes, Pizza and Salad. The health-conscious will be glad to know that Joies does not use Sugar and artificial flavoring for its range of traditional artisan Bread. It was also learnt that Joies Cafe does not serve meat... only plant-based ingredients and dairy/eggs. Modern-chic and comfortable atmosphere, the place is a great choice over breakfast and light-meals (serving portion might be too small for proper meals); superior food quality by the way.

Big Platter (Rm 32)

Watermelon Rocket (Rm 18)

Aglio Olio Pasta (Rm 17)

When we first head of Big Platter, we were expecting a big portion but it was otherwise in reality. More like Tapas styled Sourdough served in 4 different toppings- Scrambled Egg, Hummus, caramelized Onions and sauteed Mushrooms. Every single one of them was unique in their own way but all of them were nicely done. The Sourdough was carefully toasted to shattering crisp while the toppings were meticulously cooked. Good for sharing and as light snacks in lieu of a proper meal. 

Joies' Aglio Olio Pasta was okay... with plenty of diced Zucchinis and Cherry Tomatoes; the Spaghetti was al-dentely cooked and reasonably flavored... with sprinkles of Cheese Powder. The touch of Chili flakes did spice things up but it lacked the surprising factor to us, it was a little too "safe". For Rm17, we thought the serving portion was a tad too small.
