The Mugshot Cafe with Bagel~

This is going to be just a short post about the famous Mugshot cafe in Chulia Street in Penang. It has been a mainstream for all food hunter all the time. especially when our CM Mr. Lim Guan Eng paid a visit to this cafe haha. What makes this cafe so special is their bagel and yogurt!! Don miss it out, faster put it into your checklist if you wish to have a food hunt in Penang haha. 

**There is less photos in this post, becoz it was too crowded on the day I visited the Mugshot and I could not take good photos becoz I sat at the wrong place >..< the photos were so blur, and I decided to upload just a few of them. We stood for around 15 minutes for an empty seat, just imagine how popular and how big the crowd was. 

So, what is bagel? I had no idea about it until I visited Mugshot, and here is the info I copied from Wiki:

bagel (also spelled beigel) is a bread product, traditionally shaped by hand into the form of a ring from yeasted wheat dough, roughly hand-sized, which is first boiled for a short time in water and then baked.The result is a dense, chewy, doughy interior with a browned and sometimes crisp exterior. Bagels are often topped with seeds baked on the outer crust, with the traditional ones being poppy or sesame seeds. Some also may have salt sprinkled on their surface, and there are also a number of different dough types such as whole-grain

And I still had no idea what is the proper way to eat the bagel until today. haha, can anyone teach me??

Served with the yogurt with Mango and Walnut ( RM10)
this is a wonderful appetiser while waiting for our bagel. They made and baked the bagels on the spot in front of customers, as the kitchen is located in the counter. This yogurt tasted different from others, it tasted like a milk jelly something like this haha. The walnuts were crunchy, and I love it!! for the quantity, it was just nice for two.  There were several choices for the yogurt, such as Gula Melaka and Kiwi. I heard that gula melaka is very popular among the yogurts. 

Bagels were ready to be served!!! it was so tempting!! I was so hungry that time, becoz I just sat in front of the counter haha. There were several choices such as cream cheese ( RM 5), smoked salmon, bacon & egg, turkey ham and corned beef & rocket ( RM10 each). They don have a menu, everything was written on the board haha. 

we ordered a bagel with bacon and egg. they arranged the bagel nicely with an O shape, which the egg was surrounded by bacons and mayonise. ya, the whitish thing in the middle was mayonise!! And you know how I love bacons~ that is y I love this bagel too!! The bagel was different from the normal bread, it was crispy in outside but soft in inside. 2 different taste in my first bite. The bagels were heated up in the oven. 

Another thing that we should never miss in Mugshot~ photo shooting session with the board!! I dunno how to call this, but it looks like a prison photo haha. like what policeman did when they caught a ppl with crime haha. 

Cute Patricia with a cute charge haha

Me~ too outgoing? Ya i admit that. That is y my fren asked me: ppl study medic u study medic, apa pasal u look so free? 
one simple reason: becoz I love to explore and widen my view to this wonderful world. before I die lo haha. y strangle our life in a small world when this world is so beautiful? hmm, should make a bucket list to places that I wish to travel next time.
