{Penang} The ManGoes Cafe @ Beach Street

you know i have long detached myself from Penang Cafes scene. it seems like the cafe culture is still standing strong in Penang huh as ebery now and then i can see new cafes mushrooming here and there. where do i get the updates? neh via KenHuntFood.com la. 😉

so when i was in Penang end of last month, i went on cafes hunting with Ken. we roamed across the bridge to Bukit Mertajam and then stormed back to George Town later in the evening. we had 5 pieces of cake on that day itself. as if we were on weight gain mission =.=. many of them didn’t make it (read: lousy) but this particular cafe’s left an impression!

the man goes. literally.

i told Ken jokingly “why this cafe so sexist geh, man goes, whataboue woman! pfft” and then i posted on Instagram as well which linked to AntzWorLd’s Facebook Page. later that day, the personnel of The Man Goes left a comment, enlightened me that it’s actually Mangoes! they playfully split the word up in a. LOL.

Lemon Cheese | RM 12; Mango | complimentary; Tea by cup | RM 7 (refillable)

we had two pieces of cakes – Lemon Cheese & Mango, and a cuppa tea to unwind ourselves. yes what a fruitful cakeful day! fortunately these cakes didn’t fail us. however, both of us agreed that Mango Cake fairs wayyy better than the Lemon Cheese. Mango Cake was light on the palate, do remember that these were our 4th and 5th cakes of the day, we couldn’t tolerate anything heavy anymore. the cake was moist and dense, melt almost instantly in my mouth, except the mango studs. our cuppa Earl Grey Lavender (i think) sure did a remarkably job in cleansing our calorie– cake-laden palate.

if you absolutely LOVE cheese, then the tangy Lemon Cheese is made for you. one thing remarkable is, the cakes weren’t high on sugar.

they served only cakes and beverages during my visit, they were pretty new then, like five-day-old. no sure whether they serve mains now, you can hop on to their Facebook page for more info.

the warm lighting surely enhance the laid-back and cosy ambiance here. i could have slouched there for a whole afternoon, but we had a more important thing to do – shopping. hehe.

    Love those “antiques” on display. If “man” goes, wo(e) remains…woman – man, that is.
