Affordable Western breakfast is a great alternative to cafes, albeit the environment and service may differ. In Penang, if you find a place for such breakfast, you will find yourself waiting in a long queue.
The place that I am going to introduce this time is Soon Hong Coffee Shop. This place is located at the corner of the busy Jalan Air Itam, just opposite the Malay School. There are a few stalls in this coffee shop and the one serving Western breakfast is called the JOKER’S BREAKFAST PLACE.
This stall is run by a group of energetic teenagers who are passionate about food. They have been working very hard and trying their best to prepare food to their customers the soonest possible. However, I feel their preparation process could be improved further as the waiting time is too long (about 20-30 mins).
You can find the menu as below:
S.I.A.W Platter – RM28, Siaw in Hokkien means crazy. For this platter it can cater for 2-3 persons. This platter consisted of hams, bacon, sausages, eggs, mashed potato, baked beans and butter toasts.
The ingredients of this dish look normal, the presentation and the portion make this dish a must-order as it is value for money judging by the portion which is very filling for 2 persons.
J-Wrap – RM8, the greens and scrambled egg are wrapped in homemade wrap, topped with mayo and served with salad and mashed potato.
This dish provides a healthy and balanced diet. I love the combination of this dish.
Overall, the price of the food here was reasonable and the taste of the food was good. The only problem is that the serving time is taking longer than usual. I would think that improving the process flow and the pre-preparation of certain food will cut down the waiting time for the customers.
