Secawan ‘n’ Such on Hutton

Cafes in Penang are growing at an unbelievably fast rate. Just months away and I have a whole list of cafes to try! Okay, trying one at a time.

Another relatively new cafe in Penang located in the prewar building on Hutton Lane, Secawan ‘n’ Such is probably one of the best place for a cuppa. Opened by coffee addicts, Secawan ‘n’ Such serves a small variety of breakfast menu (until 2pm), sandwiches, pasta and cakes in addition to the classic list of coffee and tea.

Finally some decent latte art!
Cafe Latte @ RM9.90
One of the best latte I’ve tasted in Penang! Rich and fragrant espresso combined with just the right amount of milk creating an amazingly rich and thick cup of latte; added with a bonus of pretty latte art. Only weird thing is the accompaniment to the latte is a slice of soft cookie similar to the piggy biscuit sold during Mid-Autumn festival. Given a choice, I would definitely say "GIMME MY ALMOND BISCOTTI PLEASE!".

Basil & Pine Nuts Pesto Pasta
Tossed in classic basil pesto and olive oil topped with pine nuts and poached egg, the spaghetti is served slightly al dente just the way pasta is served traditionally. Rich in the fragrance of basil, the pasta is a great pick! Although poached egg is a rather odd topping, nevertheless still a delicious plate of pasta.

Smoked Salmon Sandwich @ RM16.00

The salad leaves were soaking causing part of the sandwich to become soggy. Would definitely taste better if the sandwich is kept dry
Check out the thickness of smoked salmon!
Here's to a heavenly mouthful!

An extremely generous amount of smoked salmon sandwiched together with 
salad leaves and cream cheese between toasted wholegrain bread. Served with 
a simple salad tossed in vinaigrette dressing bringing out the freshness of vegetables 
with a hint of sourness. With about 3 layers of smoked salmon and cream cheese, 
every bite feels like a heavenly treat. I’ve never been a fan of sandwiches and 
salmon salmon (even when they exist in abundance in London) but this 
sandwich got me craving for more.

Pork Chorizo (add on) @ RM4.00
A classic snack, the pork chorizo here is served differently from its classic method of being cooked in red wine. Spiced with ground black pepper and herbs, the pork chorizo is an excellent snack and meaty add on to the meal.

Here's an example of a satisfying lunch!

High ceiling, modern simplistic decorations with wall murals, Secawan carries a relaxing atmosphere. Bright and airy, with air conditioning, Secawan ‘n’ Such is an excellent place to enjoy a good cup of coffee. Albeit it’s limited food menu at present, the quality of food definitely triumphs over the quantity of choices.
