Located at a small alley way that connects Campbell Street and Kampung Malabar Street, Toh Soon Cafe is an old but popular coffee shop that serves toast and coffee. The unique point about this old shop is its bread which is grilled using the traditional way, with charcoal fueled fire. Aside from its toast, the coffee served is one of the best local Hainanese style coffee in Penang.
Toh Soon Cafe usually opens from 8am to around 3pm and it is normally crowded.
Revealed as Malaysia’s first urban archaeological park, part of the Sia Boey area in George Town has been rejuvenated and converted into a new public park. Sia Boey was once a busy place for the locals as there was a market, a canal that enabled small boats to come in and with its close proximity to the sea, Sia Boey was also a bustling trading station in the old days.
After the old Sia Boey market was closed and the nearby shops were relocated elsewhere, the area was abandoned for a time until the start of the Sia Boey Rejuvenation Project – headed by the Penang Development Corporation and George Town World Heritage Incorporated. The project is aimed at revitalizing the entire Sia Boey area, with the urban park being the first phase that is completed.
