Chai Diam Ma, Penang (Queen Street)



A random saturday spent with boyfie when i visited him in Penang during Chinese New Year. He brought me to this heritage cafe located in Queen Street. I was pondering what does "Chai Diam Ma" mean. Thanks to google, Chai Diam Ma means sundry shop in Hokkien. Pardon me because i'm a pure Cantonese,so i'd know what's that mean till i google it. Hahaha!


Some interesting information stick in front of the door. Xiao Hua, the big boss =)


Chai Diam Ma is actually one of the pre-war house located along the street. The cafe wasn't big itself so the seats were quite limited. Anyhow, we managed to get ourselves a table because it wasn't very pack on that day. 


It was a sunny afternoon yet we chose to sit outside so it was a little bit hot. 

 Basins

Even the wall was being decorated creatively!


They reused the refrigerator & turned it become something like this. You can take any magazines & read it when you're bored of waiting your meal.

Here comes our drink!
 I ordered Tomato Juice (100% fresh fruits & sugar free)- RM8
Boyfie ordered Strawberry Mango Tea (RM6)

Thin Japanese Udon with Chicken & Bacon (RM16)
I personally like this very much, just that the portion was a bit small.

The 'huh,what are you doing?' face.


Let me show you a little more about this cafe. They're selling handmade/handcraft thingy in their shop.
