Munchies Cafe @ GAMA, Georgetown, Penang.

Found in an unexpected location, Munchies Cafe is housed in a snug but cozy corner in GAMA supermarket.... right smack in Georgetown. It's hard to notice this place if you have been paying attention... it can be found at a corner of the building, towards Jalan Gurdwara, a little off from the main entrance to the supermarket. The cafe has a Malaysian-friendly menu, featuring a blend of Western dishes with local delights. Unique to Munchies Cafe would be their Umami Rice Bowl- basically rice topped with various toppings and occasionally, it rolls out special of the day. The weight-watchers would be glad to know that this place offers healthy Sandwiches and home-made Yogurt.

Chicken Rice Bowl (Rm 15)

Kimchi Chicken Rice Bowl (Rm 15)

Salmon Rice Bowl (Rm 24)

Peanut Butter + Banana Yogurt (Rm 12)

Honey + Kiwi Yogurt (Rm 12) and Granola + Marmalade Yogurt (Rm 12)

Build Your Own Breakfast (Rm 18)

Smoked Duck Breast Sandwich (Rm 18)

Each Rice Bowl comes with a side of Corns, Broccoli, a Sunny Side Up and a meat topping. The Chicken Rice Bowl is a safe option, with braised Chicken Thigh. It was nicely seasoned with fork-tender texture, definitely a flavor-combo that most Malaysians can accept. Worth mentioning is the Kimchi Chicken Rice Bowl with home-made Kimchi added... which barely registered any spiciness. The acidity was gentle but good enough to offer a refreshing dimension to the dish. Disappointing item was Build Your Own Breakfast, the presentation was not up to par; not that the flavor-combo was bad but we thought they could have done more with a little more garnishing, perhaps, an additional piece of Toast would be great.... the dish was disappointingly average.
