Penang is well-known for its UNESCO Heritage, topping up that its located at the heart of the island, its been a busy town. It definitely does bring back those memories back then in the olden days.
… and Stewart Lane is part of it. Its nice to chill at this kinda weather, with such wonderful ambiance topping up with good food.
A row of pre-war houses.
Having Nostalgie to be situated strategically in one of those lanes, little did you know whats the core of it.
Spaghetti Marinara with Prawns – RM24. Looking at the prawns on the picture makes me drool. It is served with parmeson cheese and the two gigantic prawns. I love pasta with slightly more olive oil as the combination of the taste of all the fresh tomatoes, onions and basils being blended on the dish.
Something a little different. Chilled Cranberry Juice with Longan for RM9.
Chicken and Basil Pesto Fettuccine – RM21. Awesome dish which come with chopped basil, chicken breast, cherry tomatoes. You gotta taste this!
Prawn & Chillies Pizza for RM30, with fresh prawns, mozzarella cheese, basils and of course chillies. It tastes so good and I want more! The prawns are fresh and visible, huge ones, mind you!
The ambiance of the cafe is Nyonya-ish, just like back in those days. It does give you the ancient-vintage feel. I was lucky it rained and the best part is, it became so cosy and comfortable that I could have doze off anytime!
More pizza for the day. Next in line was Chicken with Feta Cheese Pizza, RM28 for such a wonderful thing to melt in the mouth. Served with chicken in cubes, feta cheese and cherry tomatoes.
Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich – RM14, name itself sounded like a killer and … it is! It is serve with some lettuce, grilled-teriyaki chicken and some onions topping up with some fries. I would love it better with lotsa fresh slice of tomatoes!
I love carrot cakes in nature. I just can’t deny that its simply my lucky day to have to enjoy every bite of the carrot slice on a wonderful day. RM12 for a slice of carrot cake that you will not regret.
Nostalgie ain’t just a cafe. Its also a homestay! Well, its still under renovation but I did sneak in to check out, just to urge my curiosity on how its like upstairs
