All New Hideout @ Passionis, Siam Road Penang

Located in one of the less busy street but where most of the people will queue for the famous Siam Road Char Koay Teow. Passionis has just recently added a little fine touch to Penang Island with its "CRAFTED with Passion, BAKED with Love" concept of pastries. 

Planning for a hangout or looking for a cozy place to chill out with your friends or loved ones? 
Passionis would be just great for you to have a little catch up just to enjoy some nice pastries and have a little chit chat here with them.

Passionis has officially opened its door in November last year serving all the finely done pastries. Passionis specializes in all the delicious pastries inspired from different countries and created their own recipes to serve all the sweet tooth of Penang. It is located at Siam Road (Lorong Siam) Penang for a while but still not many people know about it.

Just being a poser for fun.

The cafe is rather simple and straight forward, there were only 4 tables and can caters to about 20 persons. A rather nice place to chill or hangout.

Simple decorations on the table.

Potted garden, my recent craze as I'm really into gardening these days.

Passionis specializes only in pastries and they do not sell any food here.
So do remember to take your lunch or dinner before you come to this cafe. 

If you are thirsty, grab a cup of coffee or their imported English tea like Chamomile, Earl Grey and  many more. They are really refreshing and uses the real tea leaves / petals, until what's out there.

Passionis comes with an open concept kitchen where you can see the kitchen from the counter. They are really clean and tidy and that shows that they are really confident with their products.

Meet Catherine, she is very friendly and willing to share all the information you need anytime!
Ask her about their pastries, you will be surprised by all the imported quality ingredients they have used in their pastries. 

Hot Matcha Latte is priced at RM14.90 comes with a small piece of cinnamon sugar butter cookie. It was a very smooth latte that the green tea taste was just perfect. 

I believe some of you might have taste some bad green tea latte out there as some will taste bitter because they have added too much of green tea powder. But the ratio in Passionis was perfect to our liking.

Ichigo Keiki RM14.90 is one of their best seller at the cafe. It is actually a Japanese Strawberry Shortcake and also the best that I've ever tasted.

Some of you who didn't know would that thought that this is just a plain Strawberry Cream Cake.
If you have such thoughts, I am going to tell you that you are definitely wrong. I'm sure most of you will be amazed from your first bite into this cake. The vanilla cream was so light that you would not feel the typical fattening cream and the also the light sponge cake with the fresh imported strawberries was really good. It is simply delicious and comforting!

One of the highlight would be this elegant looking tart has been finely prepared. Tarte au Chocolat et Orange is beautifully prepared with its fine and crispy pâte sablée(French Short Pastry Crust) and orange flavoured milk ganache(chocolate & cream filling) and added citrus peels as a fine touch.

The tart itself was exceptionally fragrant and crispy, and the filling matched the tart perfectly. The combination of chocolate and orange has left me speechless but only indulge in the chocolaty and not too sweet tart. It was really good that I can highly recommend this tart to all my friends!

Crème brûlée is one of my all time favourites. Whenever I spotted any Crème brûlée in any cafe or restaurant, it will always be my first choice. If you have read my previous post about DCOVA, you would understand how much I love Crème brûléePassionis will prepared the Crème brûlée upon order to keep it fresh and delicious.

Question: How do I judge whether I like the Crème brûlée or not?
The first thing I will do is to crack the surface with my dessert spoon. I'm always delighted when I hear the cracking sound that *cracks* beautifully. It is easy to know tell that your Crème brûlée is a pleasant and presentable one. The creamy and milky together with the freshly burnt caramel sugar was just perfect to my liking, it was really comforting and highly recommended! 

Another presentable dessert would be none other than this freshly baked Apple Brown Betty, one of the highly recommended desserts and also one of the best sellers in Passionis. It is made again by their very own pâte sablée, Granny Smith apples, streusel and their very smooth and milky Madagascar vanilla pod ice-cream.

The combinations of the base crust, the apples and the crumbs was really good and nor forget to top it up with a spoonful of their homemade ice cream. It will surely flattered you with the slight sourness from the apples and the crust from the crumble and the tart and the sweetness from the ice cream.
I definitely wouldn't mind to add more calories for this! Highly recommended by me!

Passionis is a place you would definitely fall for it. Their exceptionally fine and delicious pastries are what people will die for especially the ladies. Do watch out for the new products from time to time as they are still adding more and more items to their menu. 
Passionis will be a new hideout for people who prefer a quiet and cozy place to enjoy some chit chat time with friends or even just chill out and enjoy the whole afternoon at the cafe.
