Kuih Culture @ Kimberley Street, Georgetown, Penang.

There's so much love for Nyonya Kuih and we can see them everywhere, on almost every occasion- parties, celebrations or ceremonies; not only for the taste but the eye-pleasing colors as well. Kuih Culture, one of the newly opened Kuih shops in the heart of Georgetown; offers an extensive range of Nyonya Kuih with an array of local delights.... and a little Hainanese blend. Expect to find Assam Laksa, Nasi Lemak, Kerabu Bee Hoon to Hainanese Chicken Chop or even icy sweet treats like Ice Kacang and Cendol. It's hard not to notice the display of colorful Kuih near the entrance, while they do stock and display some of them, the selection on display is rather limited (probably 5-6 types of Kuih only). The Kuih is priced higher than most Kuih stalls in the markets but the dining space is definitely more comfortable. Suitable for light meals or afternoon tea. 

Cendol (Rm 4.50)

Ice Kacang with Ice Cream (Rm 6.50)

Hainanese Chicken Chop Rice (Rm 13.90)

Kaya and Butter Steamed Bread (Rm 2.50/ single)

Cendol Talam (Rm 1.50) and Ubi Sago (Rm 1.30)

Many of the servers seemed untrained... they were struggling with our orders and in the end, placed the wrong order for us. We wanted Hainanese Chicken Chop but it was Hainanese Chicken Chop Rice that was sent to our table. The slab of Chicken Chop was well-coated with Egg and it was delicious. We love the meaty texture with a burst of alluring Eggy aroma. The gravy was a disappointment though, it was nothing Hainanese; on its own, the Chicken Chop was good but more to a misnomer to call it Hainanese Chicken Chop. The Kuih was alright, not too sweet and served in appropriate serving size; the Cendol and Ice Kacang did not go wrong either, though I would personally prefer the former dessert to be more "lemak".

Kaya and Butter Steamed Bread on the other hand, was a complete disappointment. The Bread was cold when it was served to us, we expected soft, warm and fluffy bread with melted Butter but it did not happen. The bread was cold and the edges were far from being soft... the Kaya was not too shabby though.
