Best 12 Dishes for Breakfast Lunch Dinner at Black Kettle Penang
Black Kettle Penang is one of my favorite hangouts and the perfect pit stop for coffee in George Town.
The café has maintained its great coffee and good tasty food since its opening.
Black Kettle has an extensive food menu serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, which I enjoy.
Here are my recommendations for the best 12 dishes to order at Black Kettle Penang.
Traveler’s Tip: For digital nomads, Black Kettle has a good stable WiFi.
BREAKFAST MENU 9 am – 12 noon
Penangites love eggs on toast. That’s a fact. For breakfast or a solid brunch, I love to eat this every day if I can.
Eggs Benedict RM19.5
Black Kettle takes this brunch favorite a notch higher for those on a Pescetarians Diet.
This dish has Smoked Salmon, Spinach, Cherry Tomatoes, with Poached Eggs (2) served on Brioche Bread drizzled over with Hollandaise Sauce.
If you’re feeling greedy like me, add Crispy Beef Bacon +RM8.0.
Curried Crab Sandwich RM19.5
Another hurrah for Pescetarians! This is the handmade Classic meatloaf with all the ingredients that make you sing—tasty, Succulent Crab with Chilli, Salted Egg Yolk, Curry Leaves, and Cream in a sandwich.
Skaganora Open Sandwich RM19.5
I like this tasty Nordic sandwich with Prawns tossed in a Lime Mayonnaise with Dill served on Handmade House Bread.
A duo of Cheddar and Mozzarella Cheese RM13.5
If you like creamy filled Omelettes (3 Eggs) with Homemade House Bread, I would recommend the double cheesy Duo of Cheddar and Mozzarella Cheese.
Savers Tip: If you’re a light eater, get 2 Eggs done to your liking, either a Sunny Side Up, Scrambled, Poached, Crispy Fried, or Plain Omelette from RM8.5 to RM9.
Treat Yourself Add-on: Crispy Beef Bacon (2 Rashers) RM8
BLACK KETTLE In-House Bakery
Discover a tempting range of fresh bread, scones, croissants, cakes, and other baked goods from Black Kettle’s own bakery next door.
All the baked goods are on display as you enter the cafe and are available for dining in and take away.
Healthy Tip: Freshly baked Sourdough Bread with its famous tangy taste is easier to digest than industrial white loaves.
SET LUNCH 12 NOON – 3 PM
Black Kettle has Set Lunch with a great selection for just RM25 for 1 Main Course + 1 Starter.
Starter Menu is a choice of Kettle’s Home Made Soup or Kettle’s Market Fresh Salad.
You get a slice of Crusty Homemade Bread served with your choice of Kettle’s Home Made Soup. We love the deep intense Homemade Mushroom Soup with Croutons!
Kettle’s Market Fresh Salad (Fresh seasonal salad served with vinaigrette) with the Sourdough Bread spread with delicious Hummus!
Main course selection is a choice from the three mains of Chicken, Fish, and Pasta (with the Pasta being the “silent” vegetarian option)
Escalope of Chicken Milanese – breadcrumb Chicken with Spaghetti, tossed in Kettle’s Sauce Pomodoro
4 Fillet of Butterfish with Leek, Garlic, and Ginger Pasta in Broth – We love white firm-fleshed Butterfish, which has high-fat content is delicious when marinated in Lemon before cooking.
Linguine Aglio e Olio – Tossed in Garlic, Herbs, Chilli, Parmesan Chee, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Savers Tip: Add a slice of the Cake of the Day with a ball of Vanilla Ice Cream for + RM9

BLACK KETTLE MENU
Kettle’s Home Made Soup RM14
The deep intense Homemade Mushroom Soup with Croutons!
Kettle’s Market Fresh Salad RM14
Fresh seasonal salad served with vinaigrette
Spicy Prawn Spaghetti RM28
A delicious pasta dish made with Prawns, Cherry Tomatoes, and Flared with Red Wine Vinegar and finished with Herbs, Chili, and Pomodoro Sauce.
Lots of Lovely Cakes
I was eyeing the Victoria Sponge Cake, the buttery tender sponge cake rounds, sandwiched with a thick layer of fruit conserve and homemade buttercream.
Sometimes it’s the homey Granny tea cakes that I want to eat with a hot cup of afternoon tea for teatime treats.
All the cakes are homemade in Black Kettle’s own bakery next door.
Victoria Sponge Cake RM10
Buttery tender sponge cake rounds sandwich with a thick layer of fruit conserve and homemade buttercream.
Chocolate Truffle Cake RM14
This cake has the right balance of bittersweet like dark chocolate.
Salted Caramel Rum Cake RM17
Full of character, the four cake layers are rich with the flavor of butter, a hint of cinnamon, and that familiar warmth from a splash of vanilla and rum.
Treat Yourself: When it comes to alluring desserts, go for the second slice of cake!
A LA CARTÉ MENU 12 NOON TILL LATE
I will introduce these two dishes, which I tried and love. Both are new on the menu, and the taste is delicious.
Prime Chilled Australian Aberdeen Angus Sirloin Steak Chimichurri RM47 (150g) RM69 (250g)
This Australian Aberdeen Angus Sirloin Steak recipe is tasty and a great crowd-pleaser.
I like my steak juicy, fabulously tender, and seasoned with just salt and pepper.
The potent nutrient power-packed South American gaucho Chimichurri Sauce gives the steak a flavourful mouthfeel.
Fillet of Sea Bass Chamoula RM29 (Moroccan Spices and Olive Oil)
The Sea Bass is fresh and tastes best with the fragrant blend of seasonings and spices of Chamoula.
Once I tasted Chamoula, I wouldn’t want to eat Fish with Tartar Sauce anymore.
HAVE Great Dining Tip: Ordering a glass of wine is less commitment than ordering the bottle.
