Arabica Estate Cafe has established themselves at the latest gathering hotspot in Penang - Automall at Persiaran Karpal Singh. The cafe employ the concept of open space, allowing the customers enjoy the breeze from the Penang Strait while enjoying a cup of coffee. They have a relatively elementary menu on food, however their choices on coffee is peculiar, especially their ranges on Arabica Estate Signature Coffee.
This is Arabica Estate 3rd outlet after the 1st at Gurun R&R and 2nd at Kota Bharu Kedah. Arabica Estate is a company established in Penang.
Their waffle - James' Brownie has a very appealing look but it did not come cheap with a price tag of RM 16. It comes with a crisp chocolate waffle riddled with brownie pieces, topped with various size of marshmallows.
We loved the sprinkles of almond pieces on the waffle as it gave a taste blast to the regular waffle with chocolate. To maximize the enjoyment of the waffle, make sure every spoonful of it is covered with the vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup, else it will taste flat.
We opted for Smoked Duck Spaghetti (RM 22) for our dinner. The spaghetti noodles were cooked to the right texture, retaining the satisfaction from chewiness when a forkful of it were put into mouth. It was hard for us to tell whether the meat served was duck meat as it tasted softer with a slight different taste than the conventional duck meat we had, though we have to agree the smoked duck yielded pleasant taste. The down side of this dish was the relatively small portion.
Their Arabica Estate Signature Coffee - Chi Chi (RM 13) was a hit. We believed it was topped with Farm Fresh milk, which gave it a distinctive pleasant sweet taste with the aromatic Arabica coffee scent.
Order was placed at the counter then they will give you a number. During our short dining there, we do realised they seemed like lacking of staff but the servers still trying their best to fulfil every customers' needs.
