Pit Stop no.12 @ Lorong Chulia, Penang.

It's time for another food post! A cafe review, to be exact. 
Even though I had been to and written reviews of many cafes in Penang, there are still quite a number of cafes I've never explored. Plus new cafes and places are opening day by day D: 

Not many people know (at least I don't :P), but there are 2 Pit Stop cafes in Penang. One is Pit Stop no.12 at Lorong Chulia, another is Pit Stop no.6 at Lebuh China. I've been to the one at Lebuh China but didn't like it, as I accidentally ordered a big breakfast with sashimi that made me entirely lose my appetite :(
 (I don't like sashimi)

However, Sarah insisted for me to give it a try again, this time at Pit Stop no.12 in Lorong Chulia, and I concurred as she insisted she liked it so much hehe! And so we went. 

Pit Stop no. 12
Can you spot the trishaw? ;)

The vintage deco. Cluttered but it emanates a homey feeling. 

Cozy corner in the cafe.

Here comes the food!

Morning Starter RM 12.80
Bacon, 2 eggs (scrambled/sunny side) with side salad, hash brown and bread

Love the bacon! (who doesn't?)  Complimented with the fluffy eggs and crispy hash brown.
The bread was a bit hard to chew on, though.

3 Little Pigs RM 10.80 
(such a cute name!)
Omelette with bacon and cheese, served with side salad, hash brown and bread

Sarah said it was a lil salty with all the bacon and cheese :P


Add on black coffee for RM2.90
Freshly brewed Lavazza coffee suited my palate nicely!
I like plain black coffee, the bitter the better :P

LC's Spaghetti Carbonara with Bacon RM 15.80

I tried a bite, and it was delicious! The portion was quite big with plenty of bacon, definitely worth the price.


After we finished our branch, there was still some time to kill, so we ordered dessert :)

Berry Banana Pancake RM 10.80
Hot pancake served with banana, strawberry puree and vanilla ice cream

Didn't expect too much but was definitely surprised by the huge portion. There were 2 pieces of  thick pancakes with plenty of bananas and cashew nuts. 

Overall, price was decent and food was above average. Would definitely revisit it again!

Pit Stop no. 12

January

Holiday = laze mode on

Honestly, I don't get why I can find time to write in the middle of finals and yet managed not to write at all during holidays. Its as if my laptop has been reduced to being a 'drama player' wtf. 
I really don't get me. So I decided to sit down and reflect on myself, but I gave up like, 2 minutes later HAHA (I hate reflections, reflections hate me. We don't have a good relationship.)

I might as well reflect on 2015 since I haven't done it :P
2015 was a good year for me. Finished my diploma studies in March, worked part time then went to Taiwan in June (I haven't even blog about it haha) Then entered USM in September. 
Oh yeah, I am studying in USM right now! 
I know that I am so blessed to be able to study there, its been my dream uni since I was a child! Besides the fact that its like 5 minutes away from my house lol. So no need to leave home! And can eat all the Penang good food and grow fat. HAHAHAHA
So my first semester at USM is done, and its the semester break now. Can't wait to go back for the next semester! 

I'm hoping, reaaaaally hoping that I can find time to blog even though I'll be super busy in uni. That's a little promise I made to myself, to never give up writing :)

A selfie to end my first post of 2016!


PS: Yes I chopped my hair! :D No regrets!





Till then xx
