Cafe In George Town Delivers New Soft Shell Tacos With Firecracker Prawn & More

It has been three months since dine-in is allowed in Malaysia. It is always important to support the locals, especially during tough times. While ordering from food delivery platforms is the easiest way to get food delivered to your doorstep, it is a good idea to balance it out by ordering it directly from cafes. Here are some soft shell tacos worth ordering directly from Hold Up!


Hold Up! Delivers New & Improved Soft Shell Tacos

Located along Jalan Kuala Kangsar, Hold Up, also known as Out of Nowhere, is no stranger to locals and tourists. Tucked in a heritage building, it has a concept of a cafe (white and bright) in the front, and a cocktail bar (dark and classy) located at the back. Interestingly, you will need to go through a faux orange refrigerator to enter Out of Nowhere. (Basically, it is Narnia, but in George Town).
