No 11 Cafe By Selected Concept @ Pulau Tikus, Penang.

Hailed from Kluang (Johor), No 11 Cafe is the first branch outside of Johor by the Selected Concept. The cafe is found at Jalan Yeoh Guan Seok, a stone's throw distance away from Pulau Tikus market (park your car at Moulmein Rise and walk over via the back entrance). It does not carry a big signage so it's easy to miss the place. The menu can be confusing- a mix of both Asian and Western delights, from the usual cafe fare to Japanese-inspired Donburi or even Pizzas. The ambiance is good and suitable for casual meet ups but the price points are higher than usual (imagine paying for a big breakfast at more than RM50 after service charge). Not too shabby for novelty experience.

No 11 Big Breakfast (Rm 45.90)

Hotate Mentaiko Pasta (Rm 32.90)

Mashed Potato with Chives (Rm 9.90)

No 11's Big Breakfast comes with some unusual combo. Ours had Fried Pork Belly, French Toast and both Scrambled Egg and Sunny Side Ups. It was a little heavy for one to finish entirely, the Scrambled Egg was nicely cooked and carefully seasoned; same for the case of Sunny Side Ups. We did not enjoy the Baked Beans and the Pork Belly was a little burdensome for breakfast; there were no healthy greens to assuage the guilt either. For Rm 45.90, we thought it was way overpriced. The Hotate Mentaiko Pasta was better, they were very generous with the Mentaiko and the Roe clung nicely to the Pasta with an addictive al-dente texture. The dish may be a little overly spicy for some. To share, we had the Mashed Potato with Chives which was alright but it was a little overly buttery-creamy to our liking.
