Yellow Lips @ Lebuh Pantai, Penang

Henry Tan | 2:21 PM | |
Hello! It has been a while since the last post. This time #IBlogMyWay introduce you to another new cafe in town - Yellow LipsYellow Lips is an Aussie and Japanese cuisine restaurant located at the more secluded spot of Beach Street, which is actually replacing the previous cafe - The Mangoes cafe. Ample car park available along the roadsides, what best is that after 5pm the car park will be FOC :D

The interior of Yellow Lips is remaining the same as the previous cafe, with the cozy and comfy dining area. If you are going with a big group of friends, it is recommended to make reservation as the space is quite limited.

Yellow Lips offering high quality coffee. The boss their 90 and 92 Pour Over Coffees, the numbers are representing the mark they gained at the Golden Medal Coffee Tasting. Unfortunately, none of us are coffee person, we only prefer coffee with milk and sugar >.<

Okay, here come something we love, Frappe! Other than coffee, Yellow Lips has numeral types of nice Frappe. Their Frappes are not overly creamy and sweetened, among all of the Frappe, Green Tea, Swtizco and Roselle Frappe are the most outstanding ones. I had Swtizco Frappe that night, I love its bitter sweet and thick chocolate flavour <3

Yellow Lips serving both Japanese and Aussie cuisines. Let me start with my all time favourite Japanese food! I have to praise the beautiful presentation of their foods, the colourful dishes make me happy :D Tekka Don is rice dish topped with tuna sashimi, the chef brilliantly combine tuna sashimi salad with raw tuna slices make the whole dish bountiful, and the overall texture has become smoother with the quail egg!

Bara Chirashi is rice dish topped with a variety of sashimi such as salmon, tuna, and ikura. The simplicity of the dish makes the quality of the cut and the freshness of the sashimi the important points. The freshness of their sashimi is undeniable but in overall it was a bit dry to our preference. I likeTekka Don more.

Smoked Kamo Chirashi is a rice dish topped with smoked duck slices, it is not a common dish you could find in any other Japanese restaurant in Penang. The smoked duck is thick but tender, very well marinated, and the poached egg was done beautifully. I am not someone who really fond of duck but I like this dish.

Unagi Don is rice dish topped with a considerably big piece of eel grilled in kabayaki style, similar to teriyaki. This is one of the most common Japanese dishes, Yellow Lips Unagi Don is nothing much surprising with standard taste, but I think the price is cheaper than elsewhere, as the price is inclusive GST with no additional charges.

The presentation of Sea Tiger with Japanese Fried Rice is just so lovely. The capsicum is stuffed with Japanese fried rice served with a Tiger Prawn and greens. I personally not fancy the fried rice as I think it is a bit dry and less flavourful to my liking but the prawn is good.

Alright, let us move on to their Aussie cuisines! Soft Shell Crab Burger is the signature dish of Yellow Lips, the selling point is their Huge soft shell crab, this is the biggest I've seen so far! The burger goes well with their homemade sauces, and even their potato wedges were delicately done. Again, their Aussie cuisine is also nicely presented, it is a very fulfilling dish with reasonable price!

Lamb Shank Croissant Sandwich is a recommended dish as well. Their Lamb Shank is very well seasoned and marinated, it was tender and without the scary smell. It paired well with their homemade sauces. Henry Darling loves this dish a lot, he said this is something he would come back for it again.

Yellow Lips Squid Ink Pasta Carbonara is an unique dish, the chef uses crab meat for the carbonara instead of the commonly used bacon. I'm not so sure whether it is Aussie dish or Japanese dish as you can see ikura in the pasta. I have tasted some other squid ink pasta elsewhere, but they are less flavourful to my preference. So, I think it is a good idea to use a creamy carbonara sauce for the squid ink pasta, it tastes so much better.
