TOLK Cafe @ De View Hotel, Air Itam, Penang.

Taking over the prominent lot previously occupied by Modern Asia Kitchen at De View Hotel (Air Itam) is TOLK Cafe, a cafe that offers a standard cafe menu with a a couple of special dishes of theirs. Wan Ton Mee (known as Tolk Tolk Mee here) is one of the unusual items. Apart from the Wan Ton Mee, the offering is pretty much nothing out of the ordinary (the usual cafe fare). Price range wise, pretty much the standard cafe-charges, not exactly too pricey. Also, not much changes on the interior decor though. 


Spaghetti Aglio Olio with Seafood (Rm 19)


Tolk Tolk Mee (Rm 16.50)


Pancake (Rm 15)

Start with the signature Tolk Tolk Mee, which came with some deep fried Wan Ton, Roasted Pork and Char Siew. The noodles were well-cooked with addictive al-dente texture. The meat on the other hand, was pretty oily with pockets of fats (good if you enjoy fattier cuts). Each serving of the Tolk Tolk Mee comes with a bowl of soup... which in our case, was pretty bland. Spaghetti Aglio Olio was alright, the pasta was al-dente and the dish was garlicky and reasonably seasoned. Only complain was the small serving portion. Pancake-wise, was pretty standard-average; it was commendable that Maple Syrup was provided instead of Honey.
