=Food Hunt= Penang - 43 Cafe @ Sungai Dua

Facebook’s Queen Maggie Fong treated me to a meal at 43 café, 43 is also happen to be a house number. They have been doing business since 3 years ago, from making homemade burger they have ventured out to making their own ice cream. The owner’s emphasis on taste ensures a pleasant surprise on the menu.

However, beware that the food you actually eat might not be the food you think you eat, a piece of pork can taste like a beef steak, sometime taste like Tuna too, and when you take a bite of a chicken breast, you thought you are eating chicken drumstick.

The 2 brothers have converted their father’s no.43 terrace house into a home cook restaurant, customers are forewarned that they might have to wait from half hour to 1 hour, as the cook attends to only one dish at a time.

Ice Cream 2scoops RM6, RM9, RM13.90

The Ice Cream offered here supersedes the main course of the menu. Only 4 basic ingredients are used in the making and it takes at least 8 hours to make, the range of flavors are varied and creative, from Guiness Stout with chocolate to Himalaya salt with red sugar, will completely transform your perception of ice cream.

Sesame Salad RM8.50

By using roasted sesame sauce as the dressing for the salad, Orientalized western dish.

Dry-aged Pork Steak RM 28.80

Why a pork can make to taste like beef? The secret is to air dry the pork for at least 3 days, and let the pork marinated by its own flavor, then slow cook with medium heat.

Chicken breast that taste like drumstick, is a result of Sous-vide the chicken for at least 2 hours.

Jacgy's Sausage Carbonara Spaghetti RM19.80

The Carbonara is a bit wet here, and besides bacon, they added Italian sausage to enhance the taste.

Cincinnati Chilli Fusilli RM19.80

It has nothing to do with rings, but a famous sauce in USA with a unique spiciness and sweetness from bell pepper-capsicum and minced pork.

Fork Pork Blanket RM17.50

You might think this is only a bacon hamburger, but the secret is the cook simmers the pork for at least 8 hour, so that the pork turn into floss and taste like Tuna.

A pork satay that taste like fish otak-otak.
