Hidden T Cafe @ Bukit Mertajam, Penang.

Found on one of the upper floor units at Pusat Perniagaan Bukit Mertajam, Hidden T Cafe is one of the latest spots at the local cafe scene. The place is known to churn out healthy Rice Bowls with a lot of colorful elements and often made appearances on various social media platforms. Its quite easy to locate this place... it has a huge signage on display and found on top of Spade's Burger (same row as Subway Bukit Mertajam). On the interior decor, it has a clean, simple setting... not too fancy but comfortable enough as a cafe. Menu-wise, it is not too big and features a few choices of Rice Bowls, Wraps and desserts... those who are on budget would be glad to know that food items here come in big portions but affordable priced (mains usually cost less than Rm 15). 

Hidden T Rice Bowl (Rm 10.90)

What The Duck Rice Bowl (Rm 13.90)

Chicken Wrap (Rm 10.90)

Taro and Sweet Potato Balls in Soy Milk (Rm 9.90)

Yam Milk (Rm 9.90)

It was good to learn that Hidden T promotes balance in diet by introducing quite a hefty amount of greens to their dishes but the ratio of toppings to Rice seems to be a little off. Both the Hidden T Rice Bowl and What The Duck Rice Bowl  come with a chock-full of Basmathi Rice and various toppings. The Hidden T Rice Bowl had finely diced Smoked Duck Breast (drizzled with some sweet sauce), Scrambled Egg, Edamame and Lettuce. The flavor was straight-forward but the portion of the Rice over-killed the dish, not that we are complaining for the price but the proportion could be better improved. Like-wise for What The Duck Rice Bowl, but the seasoning and flavoring were stronger for this dish, probably because of the Japanese Goma Sauce. Everything was as simple and straight forward as you can tell, no frills. For dessert, we had Taro and Sweet Potato Balls in Soy Milk... which was quite good. The Taro and Sweet Potato Balls were unique in their own ways and the dessert was delicately sweetened.
