Chillis And Cheese @ Arena Curve, Bayan Lepas, Penang.

The name of this place seems convincing... blending both Malaysians' all times favorite- Chilies and Cheese. Operating in one of the shop lots at Arena Curve, Chillis And Cheese is manned by a local Malaysian, who is adventurous enough to tweak local Malaysian delicacies with playful elements. You will find familiar names on the menu but once you read the description, you will find something is different. The air-conditioned cafe is simple and clean with casual setting; one of the places where you can fill your tummies without putting a dent on the wallet.

Chilli Mi (Rm 8.50/ large)

Kampung Kassim Nasi Lemak (Rm 8.50)

Sweet Pillow (Rm 6.90/ 2 pieces)

One of Chillis And Cheese's signature dishes- the Chilli Mi is a Nasi Lemak in noodle version. Spaghetti was used in this case... and stir fried in Sambal, served with the standard Nasi Lemak condiments like Peanuts, Anchovies, minced Chicken meat, Cucumbers and some Egg. The flavors were good and the Sambal possessed the mandatory chili punch but we would prefer the Spaghetti to be slightly more al-dente. Kampung Kassim Nasi Lemak on the other hand, appeared to be less-interesting... merely Nasi Lemak but served with Salted Egg Chicken, a nice change but not exactly a good move... disappointingly average. Sweet Pillow was fun to eat... Chapati-like pastry filled with Caramel and lightly drizzled with condensed Milk. It was not saccharine sweet but it was sweet; more like having a sweet version of Chapati... could have better texture though (prefer it to be doughier and softer).
