Huey&Wah has tapped into a niche market in Penang: if there was ever such a thing as a gourmet marshmallow maker, the owners would proudly bear that title!
Make it a point to visit this cute double-storied café while visiting Penang. The intriguing and inspired menu sees a list of beverages, recommended marshmallow pairings, light meals and marshmallow desserts. Where drinks are concerned, try something localised but unique such as the kopi-o topped with a stout-flavoured marshmallow.
After placing your order at the self-service counter downstairs, climb the flight of steps (emblazoned with motivational quotes) and get cosy upstairs. A book drop corner, board games shelf and small boutique encourages customers to linger.
The last time we checked, Huey&Wah's marshmallows were available in peanut butter, chocolate, lemon, matcha, stout, orange-ginger and rose, though seasonal flavours come and go. Their prepackaged goodie bags make good gifts.
