Emily Darling Cafe @ Penang Road, Georgetown, Penang.

Haven't had some fresh, delicious pastries since the beginning of lockdown in May 2021? Check out Emily Darling at Penang Road. It's hard to miss the place- it occupies the prominent red shop lots (previously occupied as Dear Dino Cafe) in the middle of Penang Road (facing the junction to Kampung Malabar). The cafe started its business operations in June 2021, offering an array of freshly baked pastries to pastry lovers. At the time of writing this blog entry, Emily Darling Cafe accepts walk-in takeaways and deliveries only (not ready for dine-ins). For now, they continue to offer freshly baked pastries, Brownies and Sourdough loaves. Be there early if you are serious in grabbing some of their freshly baked goodies as they tend to sell quick (probably limited quantities during this partial lockdown period). It is also a good idea to ring them up to reservations. 

Brownies Intoxicant (Rm 30)

Classic Pain Chocolate (Rm 10)

Brownies are probably some of their proudest creations and best sellers for now- beautifully presented in a round cake-shape and easily fit for 2-3 eaters. We had the alcohol-infused Brownies Intoxicant- the texture was moist and firm, brimming with Chocolate flavors. The sweetness was well-balanced but we thought the alcohol element could be bolder. We also had a share of their Classic Pain Chocolate... their rendition of Pain Au Chocolat; the pastry was expertly done with flaky, light texture. The buttery aroma was there too but it would be better if they could be more generous with the Chocolate filling. But the flaky pastry skin gave us confidence in their other pastry items, definitely looking forward to try more.
