If you happen to catch a flight either in the morning or evening, you are sure to pass by this coffee shop along the way to Penang International Airport (it’s along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah).
Joo Leong Cafe has been around for ages.
This is one of the coffee shop that many penangites will frequent even if they are not catching a flight.
Joo Leong Cafe in the Morning
In the morning, they start serving as early as 7:00am. Many will stop by this coffee shop within minutes soon as they are open.
Order a set of their famous butter toast and half-boiled eggs to dip in.
And if you’re not into toast for that morning, there are also some traditional fried noodles with bee hoon and nasi lemak packed with brown wrapping papers.
P/s: We especially like the ikan bilis nasi lemak, which finishes quickly.
So, what people normally do after getting a seat here, is to ask around the neighbouring tables if the ikan bilis nasi lemak is taken; if it is not, then you should quickly grab what you need.
Joo Leong Cafe in the Evening
In the evening, the coffee shop transforms into selling seafood noodles and porridge that comes with rich, thick flavorful broth.
You get to choose your addons of seafoods ranging from big fresh tiger prawns, fresh/fried fish meats, octopus to even frog meats, quail eggs.
If you like tummy soothing, warm flavorful seafood broth in the evening, this is a place not to miss!
