It has been a while since the last invited review. I was MIA till the point where Alan thought I have just graduated :P The last time I met him and most of other bloggers was LAST YEAR's August. Thanks to Caffe Strada and Alan for making the arrangements.



Cosy area with clean modern furnishing. A nice place to gather with friends for a chat and have a drink :) I like the water windows. Not sure why but I do feel less glare from it.



Some random shots while waiting for others to arrive.



Review was kicked off by serving appetizers.

Green Garden Salad (RM8.90)
Served with lettuce, capsicum, onion, croutons, sun flower, seed, egg and smoked chicken, served with house salad dressing.

Seafood Chowder in Bread Bowl (RM15.90)
Chunks of seafood (prawns & squid) are simmered with potatos, onions, celery, real heavy cream and a touch of butter. Served in bread bowl.



For main course meal, we had Asian Delights first followed by Western dishes.

Asian Delights
Kung Pao Chicken (RM9.90)
Stir fried with kung pao sauce, served with cashew nuts, fried egg, prawn crackers and rice.
Kam Heong Seafood Combo (RM8.90)
Stir fried with kam heong sauce, served with prawn crackers, fried egg and rice.
Salted Fish and Chicken Fried Rice (RM8.90)

Bao Zhiang Mien (RM11.90)

Cheezy Grilled Chicken (RM17.90)

Grilled Lamb Shoulder (RM19.90)




House drinks were served. Among all the cold drinks, I personally prefer Ice Bear. Fizzy blue soda with hints of fresh lemon. As for the hot variety, I must give credits for the Coffee art. Not many people serves cappuccino or coffee latte like that in Penang.

Drinks
Fluffy Hot Chocolate (RM6.90)
Strawberry Kiss Frappes (RM8.90)
Choco Banana Frappes (RM8.90)
Chocolate Chips Frappes (RM8.90)
Mango Frappes (RM8.90)
Orange Jewel Milk Shake (RM7.90)
Ice Bear (RM6.90)
Italian Lime Soda Float (RM6.90)

Espresso Drinks
Espresso (Caffe= single shot espresso RM4.90, Caffe Doppio =double shot espresso RM5.90)
Cappucino (RM6.90 hot, RM7.90 cold)
Caffe Latte (RM6.90 hot, RM7.90 cold)



I have turned into a dessert person lately without even knowing when :P Caffe Strada offers a few selection of cakes which are kept in the chiller near beside the cafe's main entrance. Caffe Strada's Ice Coffee Slush is actually like Affogato, an italian dessert made of fresh brewed espresso topped with a scoop of ice cream.



Just when you thought the cakes wrapped up the whole review, Boss Micheal add in another snack for us, Caffe Strada's BBQ Chicken Wings. The cafe has a few tv screens for customers to watch football matches. Chicken wings seems to be the international choice of snack isn't it?

Caffe Strada BBQ Chicken Wing, served with house chicken wing sauce (2pcs RM5.90, 4pcs RM9.90)



Happy reading~
