LeiLoMei by Manchu Is One Of The Must-Go Cafes in Penang!
Tucked in the middle of Pintal Tali Road, Manchu is a popular ancient Manchurian-themed hidden bar in Penang famous that’s no stranger to Penangites. The good news is, they have recently opened their day-time-cafe-session named as LeiLoMei. LeiLoMei by Manchu brings out an entirely different morning ambiance, offering specially designed Chinese dishes and milk teas.
Who would’ve thought a hidden bar at night could turn out to be such an amazing day-time-cafe? Despite being new as a cafe, here at LeiLoMei by Manchu, Chinese dishes are served with astonishing presentations to fit its quirky name and vintage environment.
Here you can try the most hyped bubble milk tea “steamboat” named the Empress’s Milk Tea. Served in a pot filled with pearls, jellies, and more toppings, the icy cold smoke that rises from within adds to the whole experience! It’s the most classy way possible to enjoy your milk tea!
Matcha Fresh Milk @ RM12
The Matcha Fresh Milk is definitely one of the must-try. Fresh milk topped with fresh matcha gives you a soothing yet addictive taste.
LeiLoMei Milk Tea @ RM12
Using only ingredients imported directly from Taiwan, the hand-shaken LeiLoMei Milk Tea that is made from scratch is also one drink you can’t afford to miss!
That’s not all, the food served here is vowed to bring you back the old days. Delicately served in a bamboo steamer, The Princess’s Pork Belly is the highlight among all! Crunchy yet tender and most importantly, not too oily. It’s the perfect side dish to pair with your milk tea. Sitting next to the Princess’s Pork Belly is the LeiLoMei Chicken that is deep-fried till golden and powdered with spicy seasonings.
