Acupaday Keeps the Cravings at Bay

We’re all aware that running a business is no easy feat due to an immense amount of competition in today’s over-saturated market. Not to mention, running a cafe in Penang where there appears to be no lack of cafes in town. To thrive, a cafe would need to be distinctively different or better from what’s already available. To put it simply, a cafe would need to have delicious food and drinks with a compelling ambiance to go along with it. We recently visited Acupaday, a charming cafe along Bishop street to see if it fits the bill of a noteworthy cafe in Penang. We savored their food, sipped on ice-cold coffee and basked in the calm and relaxing ambiance. Needless to say, this pork-free cafe left us very impressed . Here are 3 reasons why Acupaday cafe Penang should be on your list of cafes to try out this week.

Acupaday’s appetizing food was what stood out during our visit at the cafe. One can enjoy a wide range of delicious food at Acupaday such as their unique seafood Tom Yam Kung pasta (RM 26) and their signature chicken chop. In fact, the staff at Acupaday says their signature chicken chop is a crowd favorite as it is well-marinated with their homemade honey sauce. Additionally, their salted egg chicken bagel is another must-try dish. Truly, this is no ordinary chicken bagel as it has a spicy kick to it which we felt blended with the salted-egg very well. Rendang lovers should also give their savory bagel chicken rendang (RM 20) a try, and no it’s not crispy (you knew that was coming).

There are also a lot of desserts to choose from at a Acupaday. We had a cup of Illy Tiramisu for RM 20 which was well textured and sweetness was well balanced.

Delightfully Refreshing Beverages

A meal is only complete with a good beverage to wash down all the food you’ve eaten. The beverages at a acupaday is perfect for those looking to relax and enjoy a meal with their loved ones. Patrons are almost spoilt for choice as there is a wide variety of coffee, non-coffee, and even alcoholic beverages to choose from. We absolutely loved their refreshing rum and raisins beverage as it helped us to beat the heat. Notably, this is one of the few cafes around Penang which offers a rum and raisins beverage so be sure to give it a try.

Rest assured coffee lovers, you will not be disappointed with the amount coffee beverages available at this cafe. Acupaday’s espresso cube is one noteworthy coffee beverage available at this cafe. This DIY coffee beverage is served with espresso cubes and a glass of milk alongside with it. Be your own barista by simply pouring milk into the glass with coffee cubes and voila, your coffee is ready.
