1. Platform 9&3 Quarter Fine Dining and Cellar
Harry Potter has become such a well-recognized and beloved story, people are starting to branch out and making it a part of their own brand. And here’s gloriously new Harry Potter themed restaurant that’ll satiate all your magical needs- Master of Spirits 61, the new hidden bar in Penang which combines Potter and delicious treats.
The interior is designed to look like a wizard’s enchanted lair. There are also plenty of magical references from the wizarding world, from the portraits on the wall to the figurines on each table to the furniture and the lighting. Get the floo powder ready, Mater of Spirits 61 is awaiting your patronage!

2. Venzy Tea Pink
Despite being a relatively new bubble milk tea joint in Penang, Venzytea has never stopped stealing the spotlight ever since its establishment last August. Now they’ve opened their 4th store in Penang- and it’s furnished in pink! A-list appeal aside, their beverages are bomb. All are freshly brewed and they experiment with flavour combinations and toppings like no other. Their tapioca pearls as the star of the show are all freshly cooked, with none brought in. Just head over to satisfy your bubble lovin’.

3. Onn Kee Tauge Ayam
Lingering in Ipoh’s food scene for more than 40 years, Onn Kee is now a second-generation business which has expanded to Penang recently! Committed to providing the freshest food to customers who are mainly regular local customers, they have their own designated suppliers who supply freshest bean sprouts and chicken every day. Although there was no deliberate attempt for publicity, through word of mouth, it has attracted many patrons to have a taste of their authentic tauge chicken.

The wait is over: Singapore’s famous bakery concept tea house has opened at Klang Valley a few months ago and now it has landed in Gurney Plaza! It’s obvious that Muyoo is a company which truly loves tea- with modern tea bars, they boast over 100 different types of tea variety. We’re expecting a swarm of hungry Instagrammers to descend, line up & shoot as this place will surely be causing an Insta-stir. We don’t blame them though: every single detail of Muyoo is always on point.

5. Blue Tears Cafe
A new come-as-you-are cafe in Penang. Serving western food in a light, laid-back interior makes Blue Tears Cafe itself perhaps, the platonic ideal of a neighbourhood cafe in Bukit Mertajam.

Trust us, great food, great ambience and great vibes – Blue Tears Cafe truly has it all.
