If you are ever around the east, do pop by Penny U for their coffee & bakes!

What’s on the table: Ebiko Prawn pasta, Truffle fries, Beef chilli Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Cold Brew Mint Chocolate

Ebiko Prawn pasta was surprisingly yummy! The tagliatelle pasta gave a really nice bite and the complementing smoked fish cream wasn’t too overly cloying. Grilled tiger prawns were also very fresh!

This place is always crowded :) reason being their grub comes at relatively pocket friendly prices. Coffee is okay, nothing to shout at. But the fact that they support local businesses and bakeries is a reason for me to keep coming back to this place.

Turkish eggs are a fave - filling and oh so satisfying.

One word to describe the dish - cold. From the egg to the hotdog everything were cold. Felt like the dish was left outside for very Long. The best thing out of the dish was the hasbrown (if you get me)

But to be honest the service and ambience was okay. Food was a mehhhhhh.

Would be better if there is more truffle taste to it.

Side note: I never knew how difficult it was to locate a Halal-certified cafe till I had to find one.

Visited Penny University with a Muslim friend and woohoo it was a great experience!! I got the full English breakfast which consisted scrambled eggs (which were dry and kinda meh), turkey bacon, chicken sausage, baked beans, sautéed mushrooms, hash brown, mixed salad and 2 sliced of toasted bread. The portion was extremely generous. I struggles to finish the dish, though it was pretty good, esp. the sausage. I also really liked the iced latte they served, which completed the meal IMO. It was strong enough but smooth and not overwhelming 🤘

Taste: 7/10

Ambience: 7/10 (very cosy space that fits only around 20-30 pax? Nicely decorated with interesting pieces of “antiques” at every corner)

Wifi/phone reception: 3/10 (the cafe provides free wifi to patrons, but there’s barely signal - constantly hovering between nil to one bar in strength. Nothing much changes even when you toggle to your own 3g/4g data. I’m guessing reception’s just generally bad in the cafe. Perhaps a good reminder to all of us that we should focus on our loved ones and the meal before us instead of our phones 😂)
