There have always been a lot of coverage on affordable and delicious breakfast in Penang island. However, I believe there are even more of this kind in mainland Penang. One of it is at Bukit Mertajam and the one that I visited is Jaya Bintang Cafe located at Jalan Sungai Rambai. For more details on the food and the place, please watch the video below:
The menu and price list of the food:
Jaya Bintang is also known to have colourful wrapper for its nasi lemak. Unfortunately on the day I visited they only had red wrapper, else there would be green and blue wrappers as well.
The nasi lemak (RM1.50) was slightly spicy and sweet. It is the perfect Malaysian breakfast.
Coffee is their main focus here as Jaya Bintang has their own company that supplies coffee powder.
Toast with soft boiled eggs – RM3. This dish gave the perfect combination of soft and crunchy texture.
Nasi Lemak Special (RM4.50) – A complete set of nasi lemak with veggie, chicken rendang and a sunny side up egg which is only served from 11 am onwards .
Overall, this place serves affordable and delicious breakfast. It is slightly difficult to get parking during weekends. The coffee here is great as they prepare their own coffee powder.
