There is this big secret coffee shop — Star coffee Lebuh Noordin at George town Penang that well known to locals but unknown to many. At first, I am not a fan of the queue for a cup of coffee. I do not understand why people willing to queue for Starbucks coffee. Second, if I need to queue, I have high expectations.
Located at Lebuh Noordin, the star coffee is quite easy to find out. It is located on the roadside, and commonly there is some queue line up.
The aunty speaks well in the local dialect and Bahasa, with little in English. I am a banana, so I have a hard time ordering. In Penang, I often being looked down or not entertained due to I can’t speak mandarin. I can see many people ordering the coffee after I wait in the queue, and they get first before me. Oh well, not a big deal as the aunty serve kind of fast. At the same time, I also want to try her coffee and do not want to ruin my morning mood.
Finally, I got my coffee after waiting for about 30 mins. My first sip, I start to know why this place is the best coffee in that area. The thickness of the coffee and well balance of milk, plus gentle foam. Each cup contains a star shape of mark, which is why the name is star coffee.
This place serves only coffee. The breakfast pairing is only toasted bread and half-boiled egg. The minimal choice here.
Conclusion for Star Coffee Lebuh Noordin
Giving two stars for this!!!! Once you try the coffee, you will know how good they make it. I wish the service is better, and we do not need to queue for too long. Since she makes alone, so expect quite long waiting as the order is tremendous. For sure, be polite to her or else she would not entertain you or even ignoring you.
