The famous dining spot in Hin Bus Depot, a wooden-glasshouse welcomes a new owner- Rumah Kacha... run by the team from The Kapit's, a cafe operator from USM Penang. Started in early March 2019, Rumah Kacha offers a Western menu... featuring mainly Pasta and Burgers, with a small selection of appetizers and some cakes. Worth-mentioning would be the Pasta dishes, in which some of them come with a local Malaysian twist. The atmosphere needs no further introduction, the only thing that differentiates the place from its competitors would be the wallet-friendly price tags and its special home-made Pasta dishes.

Masak Lemak Cili Api with Prawns Pasta (Rm 25)
We had both- Grilled Chicken Salad and Prawn Salad as our appetizers; the former choice scored higher as compared to the latter one. The Grilled Chicken was expertly marinated and went well with the crunchy greens; while the Bean Sprouts on the Prawn Salad were a tad too raw to our liking... the unpleasant vegetal flavor was too strong for us. We also had their house specials- Sweet Chili with Grilled Chicken Pasta and Masak Lemak Cili Api with Prawns Pasta. the earlier choice felt like Arrabiata with milder Tomato-element while the Masak Lemak resembles stronger Malaysian flavors. We also love the creamy factor here but a pity that the Pasta were too soft and slouchy in texture, a far cry from being al-dente. The Burger- Honey Mustard Glazed Chicken Burger... was disappointingly average. We wash down with serving of Pomegranate and Cranberry Sangria, a refreshing juice sans the booze.
