Said to be one of the oldest Coffee brands in Penang, Sin Boon Kee Coffee 新文记咖啡 has come a long since its humble beginnings in the 1940's. The brand first started as a local Coffee manufacturer and has recently open up a new concept store that allows customers to dine-in and have a sip on their cup of Joe. The concept store is a stone's throw distance away from their coffee factory at Jelutong (adjacent to Straits Garden). Apart from offering their signature Coffee, the place also churns out delicious Nasi Lemak and Hainanese Toasts as well as some local Chinese delights. A worth-checking out place if you do enjoy the Coffee-Hainanese Toast combo.

Nasi Lemak is probably the only main dish available at Sin Boon Kee, but it comes in 2 different variants- Fish and Chicken. We opted for the latter one, it was not the typical battered Fried Chicken but more like Kampung-styled spiced Fried Chicken. It carried a very strong spice flavor and worked well with the Nasi Lemak (with hint of Coconut Milk). A pity that the Sambal was not as spicy as we would have hoped though. The Polo Bun was not too shabby- soft, moist with crusty top... an alternative to the classic Kaya Butter Toasts; best to wash down with a cup of chilled Hor Ka Sai.
