Latest update: This shop had been close for business.
Today is the greatest day in my life. Steven’s Hotspot, one of the largest chain cafes had a grand opening in Penang and all these chain stalls are owned by me, Steven Goh. I am now one of the richest men in Malaysia. Everyone of you who visit my chain stalls will have a 50% discount.
Alright, that was just another dream of mine. I am still Steven Goh the food blogger. I didn’t own Steven’s Hotspot or any other chain stalls. I just own StevenGoh.com and a small car.
Steven’s Hotspot is owned by Steven’s Corner. Steven’s Corner was founded in 1976 by an Indian couple. Steven’s Corner is a mamak restaurant located in Overseas Union Garden, off Old Klang Road, Kuala Lumpur. Steven is the nickname of Silan, a member of the family. The original stall sat on a shop corner, hence the name Steven’s Corner.
The first Steven’s Hotspot in Penang is located inside BayAvenue, Bayan Lepas of Lorong Bayan Indah 3. As mentioned, Steven’s Hotspot is under the management of STG Resources Sdn. Bhd., this goes the same with Steven’s Tea Garden. Sigh, all the Steven’s name had been taken up. Next time I could only use the name Steven Goh’s Corner, if my dream comes true.
Steven’s Hotspot, is a place targetting business people and also young working adults. The idea of Steven’s Hotspot is slightly different from Steven’s Tea Garden. Usually, Steven’s Tea Garden and Steven’s Corner offered Mamak’s Dishes and Rice, Roti Canai, Nasi Lemak and Mee Goreng. However, Steven’s Hotspot only offers some of the menu above but excluding Mamak’s Rice and Dishes.
The main selling point of Steven’s Hotspot is on it’s Business Center. Steven’s Hotspot also provides a comfortable place for chit-chatting, relaxing and to have light meals.
Trendy and colourful environment with most of the crowd consist of business people and also young working adults.
According to the Marketing Manager of STG Resources Sdn. Bhd., Michael Ng, Steven’s Hotspot is focusing more on lifestyle and ambience rather than on food. The food here are supplied by high-quality vendors instead of from its own kitchen. All the food being sold here are purely Halal.
Steven’s Teh Tarik (RM2.50), one of the signature drinks in this shop. The taste is slightly sweet to me, it is very suitable for sweet tooth people. As for the pricing for all the food here, it is still not fixed as the management has not finalized on the pricing yet.
Blueberry Cheese Pie (RM6), the taste of the pie is just like a normal cheese cake, nothing too special.
Lychee Cake (RM8.50), slightly sweet but still at an acceptable level. It is one of the best of all.
Tiramisu Cake (RM8.50), the taste for this cake was a bit plain. I still prefer the lychee cake.
Tuna Sandwich (RM8), a usual tuna paste filled into croissants.
Seafood Sandwich (RM8), with crab-flavoured sticks and mushrooms.
For those who would like to join the membership of Steven’s Hotspot, there are a range of cards from Classic, Silver, Gold to Platinum.
Overall, the Steven’s Hotspot focuses more on environment and lifestyle. For those who want to find a relaxing place for business talk or place to chill out, Steven’s Hotspot is the place to be.
