Lavish Fusion Bakery on Victoria Street, Penang Launches Minilicious Menu
Located in the heart of George Town, Penang, Lavish Fusion Bakery offers customers a gourmet delight with the launch of its new Minilicious Menu. In its launching party recently, this non-halal bakery cum cafe stormed the social media with members of press and media posting their visits on the day along with the inventive and joyful offerings.
On top of its menu which I reviewed during its grand opening in November 2016, this time I was introduced to new items which comprises of pastries, ice cream, smoothies, creamy concoction and few other savory creations.
There is the Snowy Ice Cream Croissant, packed with tempting ice cream flavors, like boysen berry, passion fruit, honey pokey, cookies n cream, swirly caramel, peaches ripple, goody goody gumdrops, and mandarin chocolate.
The faintly buttery pastry is flaky, and a favorite ice cream flavor is the swirly caramel.
Snowy Ice Cream Croissant – RM3.80 each, RM7 for two
Guests can choose from a diverse selection of Volcanic Lava Cubes, with this square bread version of molten lava cake offering eight choices of lava filling. You can choose from a list including the mushroom spinach, miso katsuobushi, pepperoni cream cheese, garlic cheese, seaweed mentaiko, tiramisu, pandan kaya or the flossy salted egg. Don’t miss out on the garlic cheese lava filling. It will get you agog with its gooey mild cheese.
There is an on-going Volcanic Lava Cube promo – Buy One at RM5.80 or Get Two at RM10. For the convenience of many, a Lavish Minilicious corner is set up at the back alley of the shop.
The smoothie bowls with significant difference in taste and flavor will please just about anyone.
