Jiong Cafe: A Homey Cafe That Serves Hearty Meals
Jiong Cafe is a lovely cafe that tucked away in an old shophouse at Phuah Hin Leong Road, Penang. If you’re a minimalist lover, this is definitely the cafe you’ll need to visit. The colour scheme for the interior is mainly furnished in white with a hint of light blue that takes comfort to a whole new level. You’ll surely be satisfied with the vibe here as well as all its offerings.

#1 Lava Sand x Thai Pandan Kaya Stick (RM 9.90)
If there’s one thing you need to check out at Jiong Cafe, it’s their Lava Sand x Thai Pandan Kaya Stick. The bread is toasted to a nice crisp and topped generously with the salted egg sauce and Thai Pandan Kaya. As you bite into the toast, the outer layer remains crispy while the inner dough is soft and fluffy. The Thai Pandan Kaya is the winner, it has a strong pandan flavour with just the right amount of sweetness.
#2 Jiong Chicken Chop (RM 17.90)
Moving on to Jiong Chicken Chop, it didn’t disappoint us at all. The grilled chicken is really flavourful and juicy slathered with their exclusive sauce. Goes well with the french fries that are fried to a nice golden crisp and salad to balance out the savoury flavours. Trust me, you’re going to fall in love with it and craving for more.
#3 Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun (RM 12.90)
Surprisingly enough, Jiong Cafe serves Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun and it tastes good! Generously stuffed with flowy salted egg yolk custard goodness, the bun here is ever satisfying and ever delighting. Take a bite of the bun and feel the custard flowing in your mouth, providing just enough ooze but not overwhelming flavour. We love it.
#4 Signature Homemade Mushroom Soup (RM 10.90)
How can we forget about their Signature Homemade Mushroom Soup? It is full of delightful flavours and creamy with tender bits of mushrooms in every bite. Pair it with the crusty garlic bread to soak up all that creamy goodness, perfect! Don’t take my word for it though, come and try it yourselves!
Tom Yum Noodles For Dinner? Sounds Great!
Serving only Tom Yum Noodles at night, you know they take it seriously. And yes, this is definitely our most-favourite in Jiong Cafe! Rich, spicy and sour combined together in one bowl, it’s heaven! That’s not all, there are more than 30 types of seafood and ingredients available for you to pick with the price ranging from RM0.50 to RM5.00. For those who don’t fancy Tom Yum, you can opt for the Clear Soup Noodles, which is equally delicious.
Available from 6 PM – 12 AM daily.
