1LDK Lifestyle Cafe @ Tavoy Lane, Pulau Tikus, Penang.

Both a cafe and a furniture showroom, visitors can fill the tummies before visiting the furniture showroom on first floor. Found in one of the no-through roads of Pulau Tikus, the newly opened 1LDK Lifestyle Cafe looks exactly like an ordinary residential in the neighborhood. It does not carry a huge signage but a rather small one that would be easily missed. The dining hall is not quite spacious but you will love the simplicity of the cafe... it feels so down-to-earth without any ostentation. The vintage-styled furniture also cleverly blends in, making the place picturesque in every corner. While it has a small food menu, everything is carefully crafted; worth checking out but the place might not be too accommodating to big groups. 

Scrambled Egg with Bread (Rm 15)

Pesto Chicken Pasta (Rm 24)

Hot Hot Seafood Aglio Olio (Rm 28)

FOTD Smoothie (Rm 12) and Pink Red (Rm 12)

The Scrambled Egg with Bread is a popular breakfast item, not only Scrambled Egg but with creamy mashed Potatoes hidden under the Eggs... served with a side of greens. We were worried if it would be too bland (judging from the pale colors) but to our surprise, it was reasonably seasoned. The creamy mashed worked really well with the Egg; extra credits to the crisp Toasts. We also had 2 classic types of Pasta- Pesto and Aglio Olio. The Pesto sauce was alright, though I would personally prefer a stronger, herbaceous sauce. The Spaghetti was well-cooked (could be more al-dente but probably to suit the local palate) and the Chicken was well-marinated (could be more tender though). The Aglio Olio was well-spiced but a tad too oily to our liking but the generous serving of Seafood (Clams and Scallops) well-justified the price tag. But generally speaking, not too shabby.
