Review: Armenian House, Penang

After a blog entry on Armenian Street, Penang, I believed that it’s mandatory to be followed by a food review on Armenian House. LOL! Not sure why, but that was how I felt. We came across this B&B place while we were strolling along Armenian Street. The weather was pretty hot and both my parents were a little tired from all the walking. So, we decided to take a short rest at Armenian House.

Armenian House can easily be spotted when you walked along Armenian Street from the main entrance. It was just a stone throw away from Leong Muar Chee stall, if I am not mistaken.

This is how the cafe looked on the outside.

The cafe is spacious in size and it was nicely decorated with an old charm. There were paintings hanging on the wall. There was also a pond in the middle of the cafe along the way to the washroom, if I recalled correctly.

Some of the rectangular shaped tables were designed in an unique way. Instead of wood planks as the stool for their tables, they actually made their table out of SINGER sewing machine. Unfortunately, I did not have any picture to show you here but I think my Sister did took a picture or two of the tables with SINGER sewing machine.

Now, let’s get back to the food.

There weren’t much food choices but desserts only. I don’t remember seeing them serving hot food apart from these desserts on the dessert showcase cabinet. I was intrigued to try their Tiramisu but RM12 per cup sounded a bit too expensive. So, we ended up having Armenian House Cheese Cake and Blueberry Cheese Cake.

Americano | RM7

As my parents weren’t a huge fan of milky coffees like latte or cappuccino, Sister ordered them both Americano. The cup and the saucer looked extremely cute.

Lime Juice | RM6

Iced Caramel Latte | RM14

Okay … This is an expensive glass of Iced Caramel Latte but it tasted good and refreshing at the same time. It wasn’t very sweet and it came with a slight bitter taste. But all in all, it was good especially in a hot weather.

Armenian House Cheese Cake | RM12 & Blueberry Cheese Cake | RM12

I couldn’t remember which one I preferred, but I think it was the Armenian House Cheese Cake. The texture of the cake was extremely smooth and soft. The cheese content doesn’t make you go all sick when you had too many of it. And the sugar crust at the bottom was nicely done without being overly sweet and it’s fixed onto the cake nicely without falling apart.

This is the business hours of Armenian House …

and their menu for your reference if you are dropping by any time soon.

We later found out that this quaint cafe has 8 rooms to rent out for budget travelers at affordable pricing. I couldn’t be sure how much they are charging for walk-in guests but Agoda quoted approximately S$53 per night including breakfast but non-inclusive of service tax.

Reviews from guests of Armenian House had been pretty good as they claimed that the lady owner had been nothing but friendly and accommodating. I can say that the location is good as it’s in within walking distance to nearby malls like 1st Avenue, KOMTAR and Prangin Mall.
