Sg. Tiram - Joo Leong Cafe

There is this famous breakfast and dinner place around the FIZ Bayan Lepas that I had been to for quite a few times, the only thing is that I never notice what is the name of the shop all this while, until I finally found it on the google -> http://www.penangnet.com/jooleong/. All these while, we had refer to the coffee shop as "两片两粒" (In Hokkien), which means "Dua keping Dua biji" in Malay. Why is it called that way? Later you'll know. :P

Every morning breakfast time and evening dinner time, when you are on the way to Penang airport, you'll cross a stretch of the road where there are lots of car doing all sorts of illegal parking on the roadside, and some even double parking which took out the most left lane of the road. Is the food really that good until you willing to risk receive a saman? My answer is -> THIS IS A SHOP YOU CAN NEVER MISS IF YOU ARE IN PENANG. :P


The outlook of the shop, it is a very authentic old coffee shop which selling breakfast and dinner. I always like the breakfast there because it is nice and most important -> cheap! If you going there during weekend, you possibly need to working hard to find a parking and wait for your seat.


While all the franchise shop come with fancy and nice menu, they have very simple single huge menu nailed on the wall where every table can see it clearly. Check on their price, so cheap......


I ordered black coffee ala old coffee shop style, it just feel not right not to have coffee together with toast bread and half boiled egg.

Ok, now come the explanation of the "dua keping dua biji". The shop is famous for its white bread and half boiled egg, and it always come is a pair for each item, which means it is pretty standard that everyone come to this coffee shop to order 2 pieces of toasted bread and 2 half boiled eggs in a cup. :P


The bread is the main selling point during breakfast time, as the white bread is homemade, which means it is made by the shop owner, not source from any place. It is toasted with heavy margarine on top, which makes it salty. There are sugar at each table readily for you to add on the toasted bread, so you can customize the sweetness of the bread to your liking.

I personally prefer to add the sugar while the bread is still hot, as I enjoy looking at the sugar melted on the bread. Don't know why, I just like to watch that process. :P


Now, come to the next best favorites of the shop -> "Dua biji", the half boiled egg. There is nothing very special about it, but I like the portion of the half boiled egg. It is just nice and won't be overdose like the "Omega Egg" that those more expensive chain coffee house like to use. One thing I'm not sure if it is actually "kampung chicken's egg". But with the price they charge it, should not be. :P


Now they have extra variants for breakfast, there are nasi lemak on the table, fried beehoon and mee on the counter to make your breakfast even more interesting. :)


While we waiting for our breakfast, we got treat of 2 Tambun biscuits by the seller outside the shop. :P
