70 茶室 Nostalgia Cafe @ Kinta Lane, Georgetown, Penang.

Another option for early risers, 70 茶室 Nostalgia Cafe is definitely one of the breakfast cafes that opens as early as 7:30 am in the morning. The name gives an impression that the place is a Hong Kong-influenced Cha Chaan Teng but in actual fact, it is a cafe that serves local, old-school breakfast dishes. The air-conditioned place is also decorated to the theme... displaying some sweets and toys from the 70's. On the menu, it consists of a mixture of noodles, toasts, rice dishes and Omelettes; all reasonably priced. The place gained its popularity due to social media since its opening in early May 2019, avoid peak hours like 9 am or 12 pm; but do be there early as the quantity is limited and food is often sold out. But if you ask me, nothing is particularly interesting here. 

Wan Ton Mee 汤云吞面 (Rm 6.90/ Soup)

Egg Omelette with Spring Onions 葱味蛋饼 (Rm 3.50)

Kaya Butter Toast 牛油加央烤吐司 (Rm 2.50)

Pork Floss Toast 肉松烤吐司 (Rm 5.90)

Hor Ka Sai 虎咬狮 (Rm 4.80/ iced) and Iced Coffee 冰咖啡 (Rm 2.90)

The Egg Omelette with Spring Onions is probably one of the most ordered dishes at 70 茶室 Nostalgia Cafe. While we love the soft texture and eggy flavor of the Omelette, we thought they over-killed the dish by adding in too much Mayonnaise. It was not purely made of Egg, but a thin sheet of flat pancake being sandwiched in between. It would be great if its served savory or with a touch of sweet Takoyaki sauce (or similar); the Mayonnaise really ruined the dish and over-shadowed the Spring Onions. 

We've also had their Wan Ton Mee but to our dismay, it was nothing out of the ordinary... just like any Wan Ton Mee we can find elsewhere. Likewise, the Toasts were disappointingly average either... some were a tad too dry to our liking.
