ChinaHouse, George Town

Time for another cake session! Thanks to Aleena for taking me to ChinaHouse. It's actually a very well-known place as it was on my to-go list without me realizing it. 

I've come to realize that most of the coffee shops in Penang have a pretty loooooooooooooong interior. It looks pretty "crampy" but it's actually quite spacious in terms of length (?). Am I making any sense?

They also have a cake display thingy next to the cashier (the ones that you usually see in Secret Recipe) so I thought that the only selections are there but it turns out they still have a table full of cakes behind. I think there's around 25-30 cakes to choose from. Talk about varieties. 

With Aleena

Cafe Latte, RM10

Blueberries Mango Coconut Smoothie , RM16
This was super weird. At first I thought they would use coconut juice but then I can taste something like santan in there. I didn't like it. After the third sip, I stop drinking it. It was unbearable. Not recommended to those who doesn't like strong santan smell. 

Passionfruits & Lemon Sponge Cake, RM15

Totally love this! The sponge cake is very soft and spongy. The spikey sour taste of the passionfruits goes really well with the sweet raspberry sauce. 

Salted Caramel Cashew-nut Cheesecake, RM15

Melt in your mouth cheesecake! The caramel was lovely too and they were quite generous in the amount. Also loved this very much but I don't think I can finish this alone because it's quite "heavy".

 The tiramisu was really nice! Crunch caramel and nuts at the top, spongy cake for the body, and thick and creamy filling inside. Yum yum!

Lemon something something cake?? 
Sorry, I didn't note down the name! But I really didn't like this one. The meringue top was just too sweet for me. The cake taste like nothing at all. Not recommended. 

There's crayon on every table so you can doodle anywhere on the table. image

What I drew out of randomness as I didn't know what to draw suddenly. Didn't like to hold a crayon while I'm eating too because it will dirty my hand. 

Rating | 9/10
The overwhelming selections of cakes was a surprise and yet, they manage to control the quality too. I just found out that they change their dessert menu daily according to their facebook page. WHAT?!? OMG! I think they deserve a cake-baking fanatic badge. There's a whole bunch of drinks to choose to and some times they will add in new drinks so you can always try something new I guess. Great place to hang out! The deco was very artistic too, definitely a place that is hard to come by. You have to at least visit this place once (or 99x)!
