Huey and Wah, Penang The idea of marshmallow......
Their marshmallow is good, not too sweet for me. Soft, spongy and melting marshmallow on the tongue.
So good to see local made gourmet food in Penang. They sell variety flavours of marshmallow such as vanilla, lemon, rose, chocolate, salted caramel, coffee and passionfruit in 3 different packaging. Other than that, they also sell coffee, tea, jams, biscuits and sweet tooth ~ Their current shop is in Strait Quay Penang since 2011/2012 till end of April 2014 which is today! They are going to relocate to town area in Bellisa Row, Pulau Tikus, hopefully the shop will be ready by May.
As you can see above, they do not display much of their products. It may due to their short shelf life as they claimed they 'used the finest ingredient', 'made it from scratch' and most importantly 'no artificial colour, flavouring and preservatives'. Besides their products are not vacuum packed. Thus they only recommend to be best consumed within 2-3 weeks. Well of course it is a bit more pricey but we should really appreciate gourmet food and made by local. Testing is available if you want to have a try.
Love their simple and clear labelling with ingredients list and directions used/stored. You can find Huey and Wah products now in Cold Storage in Gurney Plaza and The Big Group in KL. I am not sure about other places but I can see they are growing big.
Sorry the image is a bit blurred. The second rack is the honey graham crackers (RM12.90/Pack) and the bottom is power cookies (RM9.90/Pack). Not sure how they taste like but you can go for a try and let me know.
They have this cheesy toastie set promotion for RM9 which has cheese toast, baked egg and pickle.
Their sweet tooth - cakes, cupcakes brownies etc. The sweets may not be the same everyday.
Another promotion for teatime- '30% off for any cake/brownie/pastry on counter with every beverage ordered from menu 2pm to 7pm daily.
The food I bought
I bought a cup of take away mocha and a piece of yellow submarine cake. The drinks was okay. It just took me quite awhile waiting for the coffee and I was the only customer. Anyway, at least the drink didn't pull me down. A suggestion of me to Huey and Wah : the staffs may need to practice more on making coffee because who know their new cafe is going to fill with people having sweet and waiting for coffee.
The yellow submarine cake has a piece of lemon-passionfruit marshmallow sit in the middle of the sponge cake and coated with icing outside. I can't really taste lemon-passionfruit flavour in the marshmallow maybe because of the flavour of sponge cake and icing had covered it. Or maybe they flavoured the icing sugar and sponge cake with lemon-passionfruit flavour.
Aha, the cake taste better when I dipped it in the coffee. Love it! Still prefer my marshmallow in the hot drinks.
