Mews Cafe @ Muntri Mews

In Breakfast, Dessert, Drinks, Mix cuisines on July 3, 2011 at 11:18 pm

Muntri Mews is a new boutique hotel located on Muntri Street. The building is part of the UNESCO heritage city protective site. Right opposite Muntri Mews is another new addition to Georgetown, a chic hostel called Ryokan.

Here’s a little information about the street and the building taken from Muntri Mews’ official site.

“Muntri Street has perhaps the best preserved rows of 19th Straits Chinese architecture in Malaysia, equivalent to Singapore’s Emerald Hill.

The grade 2 listed building was formerly the stables and carriage works of the street’s grandest terraces. Carriages were kept below while drivers and staff were housed above in 12 worker’s quarters. In the Edwardian period it became a garage for some of the smartest cars in Penang.”

The menu is fairly small. On the day we went, the Gado Gado was their daily special. A special request was made to veganize the Gado Gado. On their fixed menu, the only hot food item is for lacto-ovo vegetarians – an egg & cheese/tomato croissant. Two of their desserts are vegan friendly while most of the rest contain dairy and/or eggs.

Food ordered:

1. Gado gado (veganized, usually comes with hard-boiled eggs and shrimps)

2 & 3.  Cheng Th’ng (longan, winter melon, sea coconut, red dates and sugar) – available two ways, hot or cold.

4 & 5. Sago gula melaka with gula melaka and coconut milk

6. Long iced melon tea ( macadamia and watermelon syrup, tea and mint)
