Memory Cafe 回忆 @ Permatang Tinggi, Seberang Perai, Penang.

Hidden away from the main road, Memory Cafe (回忆) is one of the best-kept secrets by the cafe hoppers at Seberang Perai. The secret spot is housed in one of the old, wooden houses at the residential area of Permatang Tinggi (behind Permatang Tinggi food court)... the lack of a proper sign board makes it even tougher for visitors to look out for the place. But don't let it deter you from checking this place out... especially if you are a big fan of Coffee and Cakes. The unique proposition of this cafe is its home-made cake and that includes... Watermelon Cake. Set in a classic but comfortable environment, this place is an ideal spot for Cakes over a cup of Joe.

Watermelon Cake (Rm 14.90)

Pandan Cake (Rm 14.90)

Latte (Rm 10)

We love the creative twist of their Watermelon Cake... a light touch of Rose flavor at the top of the cream with fruity elements like Watermelon and Strawberry to cut through the sweetness and offers a refreshing bite. Texture-wise, we thought they could do a little better... as though the Watermelon was separated from the Cake, the thickness can be better adjusted as well. The base was made up of Cookie crumbs... a beautiful addition to the cake, in terms of both flavors and texture. The Pandan Cake was alright... the distinctive vegetal flavor was bold and the texture was lovely- moist and soft. A pity that the cream had not done much in its aid, would be amazing if they could introduce French Buttercream frosting to this cake. Coffee was nice though.
