Coob Coffee Club Cafe at Komtar Walk Penang

Coob Coffee is a rather unique Japanese themed café tucked away at Komtar Walk. Its origin goes back to a small group of coffee clubs in Osaka.

Coob Coffee’s main draw is freshly brewed Japanese Sumiyaki coffee using a syphon coffee maker. The Sumiyaki coffee beans are charcoal roasted and imported from Japan. Apart from the traditional Japanese coffee, Coob Coffee also serves a variety of coffee drinks made from its Italian espresso coffee maker with 100% Arabica coffee beans, tea, ice blended drinks, smoothies etc.

For those looking to fill their stomach, Coob Coffee’s menu includes some pasta and Japanese dishes, albeit limited. I ordered the Kinoko (mushroom) Pasta which is an all-vegetarian pasta cooked with extra virgin olive oil with a variety of mushrooms. This simple pasta was surprisingly very flavourful with lots of freshly grounded black pepper, sesame seeds, garlic and seaweed.

Kinoko Pasta (RM14.90 including one drink)

Hubs ordered the Grilled Chicken Pasta with white sauce. The food dish comes with a drink, with an option of either an Iced Tea, American or Blend Hot Coffee or Iced Lemon Tea. You may upgrade to other drinks by paying an additional RM2 / RM3 / RM4.

The Sumiyaki coffee was indeed good with a strong and distinct taste.

The Iced Caffe Mocha and Caffe Granita Ice Blended were equally good as well.

Caffe Granita Ice Blended (RM10.50)
Pistachio Cake (RM7.90)

The Pistachio Cheese Cake was indeed quite unique with a subtle pistachio flavour. I was told that it is quite a bestseller. They are currently running a promotion for any piece of cake with a drink for RM8.90 (you may also opt to upgrade to your choice of drink by paying a little extra).

They are also currently offering the Coob Summer 2010 Seasonal Selection of 100% fruits smoothie with a choice of kiwi, mango or papaya smoothie at RM11.90 per drink.  

The Japanese style café is cozy with its simple and yet tasteful décor. To me, it’s the perfect setting for catching up with friends or chilling out on a lazy afternoon.

this is the area that I've not explore. In a way of boycott, because they chopped down all the trees and build this area for biz.
