Ah Wang Cafe is hidden within a quiet food court in a secluded block of government flats that has served the Penang locals for decades. Some know this café for their best snacks, aromatic local coffee and homemade kaya in town.
Here are what they offer best and will get you wanting more.
1. Coconut jam (kaya)
When you get here, never miss out on their homemade kaya which will get you drooling in no time. The richness of the coconut jam will melt in your mouth, and your taste buds will be craving for more. Unlike commercial kaya, they are not watery or too sweet. The lovely texture and the well-balanced taste is very priceless and almost perfect to your taste buds. Make sure to purchase a few of them back for you and your family.
2. Hainanese Coffee
If you are a fan of strong coffees, either hot or cold, get yourself a perfect one here. The full-boiled, robust, creamy and with pleasant smell will surely make your day. It has dark roast flavours with a hint of an ashy and nutty taste. You will be amazed by the blend of the taste when you take your first sip. With condensed milk added, it creates a thick, chocolaty texture. Coffee lovers will love their coffee.
3. Half boiled eggs
Their half-boiled eggs are made to perfection and what’s more attractive with this eatery is that they offer you a free range of half-boiled eggs. They are fantastic at making this half-boiled egg in Penang. The consistent and perfect runny texture will get you drooling when you see it.
4. Toasted bread
Not to forget, their delicious toasted bread with kaya, butter or both generously applied in between white bread, buns, wholemeal bread or Bengali bread, according to your preference, is a must-try when you get here. This eatery is not the regular cafes that you come across.
They give you options for the type of bread you want, catering to customers of all ages. Most prefer getting Bengali wholemeal bread because it blends well with the kaya and butter. The texture is softer and moister compared to other regular loaves of bread. A bread lover would know it.
