Jawi House Cafe Gallery Penang

Jawi House Cafe Gallery is located at the very famous Armenian Street of Penang. Armenian Street is now the center of attraction for tourist from all around the world or even Malaysian themselves. The famous 'Brother and Sister Cycling' Murals is located in this street, but that is not all, there is a lot of restaurant and cafe available here too, offering various types of food. The one that caught my attention is the Jawi House Cafe Gallery which offer Jawi-Peranakan dishes with a touch of Western-fusion.

Environment here is nice, it has the Jawi-Peranakan touch to it. It is so classic and old school i would say, haha ! I like it here .. !

If you google, you will notice that many people actually recommend their Jawi Nasi Briyani which comes with either Beef, Lamb, Prawn or Chicken.

Chicken Briyani RM 25.00
(Chicken seasoned with mint, spices, tomato and yogurt)

The Chicken is actually hidden inside the Briyani and the chicken is soft and well cook. One word, tasty, no wonder it is the most famous dish here in Jawi House Cafe Gallery.

Cucur Udang RM 18.00
(Malay golden fritters of baby prawns and vegetables, battered and fried till crisp, served with peanut sauce)

I am not really a fan of Cucur Udang but this Cucur Udang is an exception for me, i like it, thought i would prefer that they actually remove the shell from the Prawn but because the Cucur Udang is so crunchy that i just chew and swallow everything, haha ! It is tasty .. i like it .. !

Arabian Sherbet RM 12.00
(Rose syrup with malva nut, gum resin, basil seeds, milk)

There are many versions of Sherbet available around the world right now and Jawi House Cafe Gallery provides the most traditional version which dates back to more than 800 years in Muslim Malaya and Southeast Asia. If you like syrup drinks, this will definitely do trick but to me, it taste sweet which is what i don't prefer but it still taste good.
