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)

Chai Diam Ma

In Drinks, Mix cuisines on June 26, 2011 at 4:03 pm

A Herbivore in Penang supports locally owned small businesses, artists and handmade products.

Chai Diam Ma manages to step right in and fit the bill perfectly on all accounts.

Chai Diam Ma means ‘little sundry shop’ in Hokkien, the lingua franca of Penang. The little sundry shops from the yesteryear will evoke nostalgia for those born before the 90’s as it was the go to place to buy little snacks after school. Now with hyper-marts mushrooming faster than one can keep track, most sundry shops are as hard to find as four leaf clovers.

Queen Lee’s devotion to create a space for local artists to showcase their works and preserve a piece of the local’s old Penang is admirable.

The shop is peppered with knick knacks from top to bottom. Most furnitures were rescued from being dumped into landfills and were given a coat of paint or adored with drawings.

Their menu is small. They have one food item that is vegetarian, besides cakes. Do note that their cakes aren’t vegan. We were full from brunch when we visited. A second visit will follow to try their udon noodles with mushrooms.

Food pictures:

1. Brownie with ice-cream

2. Iced wild flower honey drink


Special mention

Bora Bora by Sunset | Revisited

In Drinks, Mix cuisines on June 26, 2011 at 12:32 am

A second visit to Bora Bora to catch the sunset and to see if their menu is herbivore friendly.

Firstly, directions. The place at first glance can be tricky to find as it’s housed behind a row of stalls selling souvenirs. Coming from the city and using Happy Mart and Desire Foot Reflexology as landmarks, look to your right and you will find a series of the stalls. When on foot, look for this board.

Walk on the path with the stalls on your left till you reach the end. Alternatively there are other ways of entering but for the first time, this might be the clearest. Once you’re near the beach, you’ll be able to spot Bora Bora easily.

A few items were vegetarian besides french fries and onion rings. There’s a pasta dish, bruschetta and pizza.

Food pictures:

1. Vegetable Pizza (veganized)

2. Lime juice

Bora Bora by Sunset

In Mix cuisines on June 21, 2011 at 12:47 am

*updated – second visit.

Sunset Bistro is back!

Many were caught off-guard as documented here. A favorite with the locals and tourists, this joint has a calm ambiance and is a good place to catch the sunset.Who wouldn’t like to have a cold drink while watching the sunset and enjoying the cool sea breeze with sand in between their toes?

A Herbivore in Penang had heard through the grapevines the return of Sunset Bistro but could not confirm the fact until tonight. Discovered by chance, the new Sunset Bistro, renamed Bora Bora is now next to Tarbush, across Happy Mini Market. It’s still located by the beach.

We were full from dinner. Only drinks were ordered. Not pictured is a bottle of beer ordered. A second visit will follow with brighter pictures and we did spy a few vegetarian items on their new menu.

Drinks pictures:

1. Iced Peach Tea

Photo taken off their facebook page

Blue Reef is well known for their fish & chips and other seafood offerings but fret not, fellow herbivores they do have vegetarian dishes on their menu. A few appetizers are vegetarian/vegan. Their mushroom or pumpkin soup can be veganized. There’s also a vegetarian pizza and pasta. Chris and Swen Lin are very friendly and accommodating to vegetarians.

Summer Vegetables vegetarian pasta with the option of Aglio Olio or Marinara. We went with aglio olio.

Permai Village Cafe – Vegetarian Delight

In Mix cuisines on June 2, 2011 at 12:39 am

Like many things of value, Permai Village Cafe is a hidden gem nestled in the green and lush new neighborhood in Tanjong Tokong. The place is inviting and the passion that mother and daughter-in-law team (Carol and Joanne) has is evident in the delicious food the amazing duo whips up! Vegetarian Delight, rightly so!

There is an array of cuisines: ranging from local dishes to pastas and even Mexican! Tip – Saturdays is their taco night (hard shell tacos).

We had a specific task. We knew well ahead that Wednesdays meant their very popular item, Nasi Lemak, would be the daily special. It’s available on Saturdays as well but honestly, Saturday is just too far away. We needed our Nasi Lemak fix now!

We made their way to the place they knew would appease their burgeoning appetites.

And now the food.


1. Nasi Lemak (Call ahead to reserve, best seller.)

2. Pumpkin Soup with garlic bread

3. Assam Laksa

4. Quesadilla
