Hoshino Coffee @ Queensbay Mall, Penang

Hoshino Coffee open a new branch in Queensbay Mall early of the year. The restaurant serves Japanese mixed Western food such as pasta, paella, souffles and curry rice.

You have to queue up to wait for the waitress to serve you to the table available. You have to place your order on the piece of order list before pressing on the calling button.

Hot Fruits Tea was basically enough for two pax and you can also ask them for refill. Bear in mind, they only refill with hot water so don’t expect the taste to be strong.

Soft Shell Crab Paella was nice and the texture of the rice was amazing. Paella is a Valencian rice dish that has ancient roots but its modern form originated in the mid-19th century. It is oily but not too oily.

Hoshino Pot-Baked Curry Rice with Chicken is nice but not outstanding. Don’t surprise me.

The interior was very classy and the ambiance was perfect and romantic.

Price on the menu was slightly over-priced but the staffs was helpful and friendly. Portion wasn’t very big for person like me.
