China House famous for their signature cake"S", I mean a lot of cake. No doubt that it is one of the best cake shop in Penang and we had the impression that China House only served cake with drink but we are completely wrong, they do have awesome menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well.
Although the outlook of the shop look small but inside is actually very long with 3 connected area, right after the entrance is drinks counter with a couple of table and one table fill up with cakes, further down the hall is another seating area with book and some antique, follow through is an outdoor decoration pool and last area is a wine bar.
We had Lychee Cucumber Soda RM12.80 and Hot Latte RM12.80. Lychee Cucumber Soda are extremely refreshing especially on hot day, cucumber green and fresh taste mix extremely well with lychee and soda, it taste very good.
Ministrone & Chickpea Soup of quinoa, leek, fennel, pumpkin & beans with Chimichurri Pesto and Cheesy Focaccia RM20. We are impress with the rich flavor of soup, taste sourish and add on with the cheese slice provided making it taste even better. Cheesy Focaccia are really impressive, crunchy with strong butter fragrance.
Pizza of the Day RM29, crispy tortilla topped with chicken pepperoni, pineapple, capsicum and cheese. Tortilla are healthier compare to pizza dough and with it thickness, it is much more crispy as well. Topping with simple ingredients is good enough to make a good pizza, saltiness of chicken pepperoni and cheese mix with sweet pineapple is just awesome.
Bento Special RM35 Grilled chicken thigh with spicy peanut sauce and spiced coconut rice pilaf served with tomato soup, steamed chicken and mushroom dumpling, salad with beetroot, turnip, sweet potato and green pea. Big portion of bento and we really love the succulent chicken thigh with "satay" sauce, rice is extremely fragrance as well. The salad really impressive with various ingredient and fill with chili lime vinaigrette taste so good.
Delicious Death Chocolate Cake RM14, almost brownie like cake but it doesn't dense like brownie texture and it doesn't sweet like brownie as well which is just right for us as we prefer not cake that not too sweet, we enjoy eating cake that has strong dark chocolate taste.
Condense Milk Pound Cake RM10 served with raspberry ice cream, pound cake are very heavy but taking with sourish raspberry ice cream is just perfect. By the way, they do offer homemade ice cream for RM8 per scoop, vanilla, chocolate, gula melaka and Vietnamese coffee. Unfortunately we din't get to try as we are too filling already. Keep it for next round.
Tiramisu RM18, one of the signature cake and it is one big piece of cake as well. It is cover with generous amount of nuts and inside has three layer, sponge, cheese mix and sponge. They will add a few scoop of espresso at sponge layer to make it moist and flavorful. It taste extremely good and we highly recommended it to everyone.
