W Toast & Coffeehouse @ Alma, Bukit Mertajam, Penang

By : Chha

This small cottage look kinda cafe used to be La Maison Blanche Cafe has now change its name to W Toast and Coffeehouse. Located at Alma in Bukit Mertajam, Penang, the location of W Toast and Coffeehouse is not very visible to outsiders. Being nested in a housing area and facing the dead end street of the most busy street at that area does not seems to bring much advantage to W Toast and Coffeehouse.

Red Velvet Lava Cake RM 14.90

Recently, this cafe is reopened as W Toast and Coffeehouse with some new addition to their menu. The Lava Cake is now taking over Penang like a pandemic, haha ! More and more cafe are now coming out with their own creation of Lava Cake and W Toast and Coffeehouse are no exception.

If you are here for their Lava Cake, then this is what you will probably get. I order the Red Velvet Lava Cake and this is how it looks like when it is serve to me, a Red Velvet Cake with a plastic enclosure at the side which hold the Lava on top of the Red Velvet Cake, well, I am not sure what is the ingredient used to make the Lava on top of the cake but it taste a little bit like milk and cheese to me.

So, what you are going to do next is, pull the plastic enclosure up and the Lava will flow down towards the cake and cover the entire cake. That is why they name this as a Lava cake, haha !

Other than the Red Velvet Lava Cake, W Toast and Coffeehouse also serve Milk Tea Pearls Lava Cake (RM 14.90) and Bamboo Charcoal Lava Cake (RM 14.90). These two Lava Cake is more famous and is in high demand, it sold out fast.

Of course, Lava Cake is not the only food W Toast and Coffeehouse is serving, there are many choose of food to choose from their menu.

Hojicha Latte RM 10.50/RM 11.50 (Iced)

I also order Hojicha Latte, it is kinda rare for cafe in Penang to serve Hojicha, most of the cafe that I have been to mostly serve Green Tea and Matcha, this is the first I saw serving Hojicha, if you know anywhere else serving Hojicha in Penang, let me know, haha !

Hōjicha (ほうじ茶) is a Japanese green tea. It is distinctive from other Japanese green teas because it is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal, whereas most Japanese teas are steamed. The tea is fired at a high temperature, altering the leaf color tints from green to reddish brown (Source).

Hojicha may not be suitable for everyone because of its burn taste, but I like it ! haha ..
