Penang is a food paradise, people always said that. Yes indeed. However it ain’t easy to find a good coffee in all the café. Cafes grew rapidly in Penang for the past few years and is still growing, but not all of them serve the best coffee! Last weekend I came across by chance to visit the Mellow Cup Café. Located along Jalan Gottlieb,Penang, this cozy little café work well as a spot for gathering as well as grabbing a coffee. I wouldn’t consider myself an expert on food review, but I’ll do my best to share you my best opinion, in the hope that one day I’ll be blogging more about food.
The café is brightly decorated with artwork on the wall, and simply yet modern furniture is open from 10am-11pm daily.

Coffee machine and dripper
There is something special about Mellow Cup. The café serves coffee by using Moses Chan Coffee bean, from Blooms Roastery & craft tea imported from Hong Kong. Mellow cup offers customers the signature Iced Drip Coffee which using Panama Don-K Kotowa Coffee bean, all served in a glass bottle. Well I am not a coffee enthusiast but I love the taste which the coffee has a sweet-subtle flavor!

Besides that, they have another iced coffee for your option- Tiramisu Signature to help keep one refreshed especially on a hot day. This is one of my favorite among all. It is truly one of a kind place which serves perfectly brewed coffee, and not forget to mention the top seller as well – The full immersion coffee which using Ethiopia Sidamo Hunkute coffee bean. For that aromatic cup of coffee, Mellow Cup uses manual brewing and the pour-over dripper, that explains the countdown timer was places on top the jar. You’ll have to wait for 2 minutes.

#Grilled Salmon with Japanese Hot Spring Egg
The meal started off with the Grilled Salmon with Japanese Hot Spring Egg. The salmon was served laid on mashed potato with some salad, it gets more and more addictive after each bite!
BBQ Chicken Skewer
BBQ Chicken Skewer at RM17.80, the taste of chicken marinated with bbq sauce was very tender and juicy!
Look at the huge prawns
Highly recommended this Seafood Tom Yam Spaghetti, a combination of spaghetti and Thai Tomyam sauce and prawns! It is a Thai fusion dish of sweet, spicy, zesty flavors that Yunice and I adore. Price at Rm20.80 only.
What better way to welcome the weekend than having a good dessert? The chocolate melt goes fantastically well with the egg york. I love it! Overall, the good coffee with reasonable prices make this a perfect coffee spot.
