Located in two double-storey pre-war shophouses on Nagore Road Penang, is Sitigun. Tagged as “a bicycle pit-stop cafe”, it is a pleasant and relaxing place for light meals and coffee.
The cafe is named after its Indonesian owner Tigun Wibisana. “Tigun suggests that you leave your car behind and ride the bicycle over to SiTigun Cafe.”
SiTigun boasts a varied menu of coffee drinks for all tastes and desires. The cafe serves double-shot espressos with home-roasted, rich Robusta coffee beans from Bali, Indonesia. I had a taste of Latte, Ice Americano and the Crash Coffee. Commonly known as Kopi Toebroek in Indonesia, Crash Coffee is a strong-flavoured brew. SiTigun offers Sumatra Arabica Coffee too.
The food menu has a variety serving of croissants, with choices of condiments ranging from butter, jam and rendang to smoked salmon. I thoroughly enjoyed the Croissant with Smoked Salmon served with a spread of cheese.
I had the savoury Cheezy Egg Jaffle, with wheat bread filled with scrambled egg and melted cheddar cheese. For those seeking sweet toasts, do check out Peanut Butter Jaffle and Nutella Jaffle.
The vast interior of this eatery is kept simple and neatly decorated with Balinese furniture, amid a huge coffee roaster. The air well at the back is airy and cool, with a water fountain with water flowing from the ceiling, next to a man-made well!
