Elmural Cafe @ Lebuh Cintra, Penang

Henry Tan | 2:15 PM | |
Could you believe that there are like 90++ cafes in Penang Island itself and the number definitely still increasing. Well, Elmural Cafe is one of the latest cafe in Georgetown located at Lebuh Cintra, same row with the famous De Tai Tong Dim Sum (大東酒樓), easy to be found. You might want to make reservation before you visit to Elmural Cafe, as their cafe is not big and has only limited dining tables. El Mural actually means "the wall" in Spanish, they named the cafe in Spanish but Elmural Cafe is not selling any Spanish cuisine, their specialties are ribs and Italian gelatos.

The boss of Elmural Cafe, Anthony is so passionate about photo shooting, you can see the interior wall of Elmural Cafe is full of murals snapped by himself, which cleverly added the essence of Penang. So for those who wish to snap picture with murals you could snap it here too, it is pretty much the same feeling huh (hahax=P)

Okay, let us begin with the beverages first! 

You can find tea, coffee, honey, chocolate as well as juice at Elmural Cafe! They have almost any types of drinks, sure you could get what you want to drink. They are so colourful aren't they? =)

We opted for their Chocolate Cookie that night, if you like milk, you would like it, as the flavour of milk is strong. All their beverages are relatively not as sweet as what we usually drink, they are suitable to those who don't like sweet stuffs and more into healthy lifestyle. But we personally prefer thicker and stronger aroma of foods and beverages.

Have you heard about this? The Leftover Pork Salad? Interesting name huh. This is actually a salad made with assorted pork slice, greens, onions, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms. They used Japanese sesame dressing for this salad, which is relatively lower calories as compared to mayonnaise and thousand island. (Yes, I'm on diet =P) As you could know from the name itself, their leftover might not be the same every day, so don't be surprised if your Leftover Pork Salad is different from mine ya. =D

Elmural Cafe's mushroom soup is served with toasted croutons, a drizzle of cream and a sprinkle of herbs on top. The soup is different from those made with instant soup powder, they generously added the mushrooms inside the soup, tiny bits and pieces of mushroom could still be chewed inside your mouth.

Here comes Elmural Cafe's specialty - Pork Ribs!

All ribs are served with potato wedges and pick of the day greens. We got to try 2 types of Pork Ribs that night. One was baked with Hot Chipotle Sauce, another one was roasted with Cheesy Tops. Well, we love pork ribs and this is quite a hot topic recently, however, I personally think the ribs here were not marinated well or perhaps the sauces they chose are not strong enough to stand out. The ribs were baked to perfection, the side salads and potato wedges were good, but overall the dish was a bit dull to our liking.

As a cheese lover, I'm so looking forward for their Pork Ribs roasted with Cheesy Tops, but it were kinda disappointing too. The cheese tops were pale and was apparently not enough for that portion of ribs. Also, since their potato wedges are quite delightful, it would be great if they provide us some dips, as the dish is kinda dry in overall. The ribs were well-roasted though.

Pork Shoulder serves with french fries and pick of the day greens. This dish is a must-try! We love their Brownie Sauce, and the pork shoulder was so juicy, tender and well-seasoned. Everything is good just the fries didn't complement the dish well, perhaps mashed potatoes would do a better role as the sides.

Like pork shoulder, their Lamb Chop is served with french fries and pick of the day greens too. Their mint sauce is much different from what we tried before, as they added yogurt in it, you won't taste the sourish of yogurt but rather refreshing minty creamy flavour well-matched with the Lamb Chop.

I would say Elmural Cafe's Gelato has undergone localisation, they have flavours like Kalamansi, Teh Tarik, Kopi O, and Chocolate Chili, each scoop sells at RM 7.80 and RM 13.90 for double scoops. Besides, they have 3 types of Gelato Dessert which are served with either espresso base, tea base or milk base. We simply like their Kalamansi Sorbet with Darjeeling Tea, it was simply refreshing.

Alright, the dinner was ended with pleasurable desserts. There is no added Government Tax and Service Charge at Elmural Cafe.
