[ Penang ] Fuku Eatery & Desserts | Beach Street

When I told others we stop food hunting for quite awhile, then my BF and I went to visit some of them recently, laugh.
We really cannot say NO to great food, and diet is always not in our bucket list.
I bumped into some reviews on Facebook about Fuku Eatery & Desserts - the new cafe-like Japanese restaurant;
so we decided to pay a visit on this newly open cafe during the weekend.
Fuku Eatery & Desserts is actually right inside Mano Plus Select Store, which located along Beach Street.
Not only Fuku, there are also Timeless Design, Moonshop (plant), Love 18 (chocolate store) and etc inside Mano Plus,
if you are interested to get anything from Mano Plus, just head over their website and have a peek on it.
Before I share about food, let's have a look on the entire Mano Plus area, there are variety of contemporary objects selling here.
I wish to own most of them myself, too bad some of them are quite pricey. 
You who love / write journal should visit here as they are selling items from Traveler's Factory as well!
It makes me think of Leonardo DiCaprio, his Inception totem.
There is an area displaying and selling ana tomy notebook where you can personalised your own notebook.
Love 18 is selling quality and premium homemade chocolate, it is originated from Kuala Lumpur;
same with Feeling 18 (Taiwan, Puli), they believe that 18 degree is the best temperature for chocolate storing and presentation.
They offer chocolate workshop here as well, we saw ladies were making their chocolate during our visit. 
That's how the name 'Love 18' come from - presens of perfect love to someone special.
You will find a photo spot at the very end of the store, which is decorated by Moon Shop Gallery,
if not mistaken, they are selling their plant (or they call it Forest in A Bottle) in Mano Plus as well.
Fuku Eatery & Desserts is on your left when you step in Mano Plus Select Store. 
It was just about dinner time when we were there, the cafe was crowded due to the hype, we needed to wait for few minutes (luckily) to get our table. The friendly staff will arrange the table with first come first serve basis;
just give your name to the staff when it is full house and they will call you when it's your turn.
That's how the cafe looks like, simple yet nice. Oh yeah, they do accept reservation here,
we saw they reserved some of the tables when we were there, do make reservation to avoid any disappointment.
Menu will be provided when you are seated, same with other cafes, we need to order and pay upfront at the counter.
Selection of cakes is not available in the menu, just head to their counter to order if you need dessert. 
Chicken Cordon Blue Curry Rice | RM15
I love how they 'organised' this curry rice, curry (with carrot and potato), rice and chicken take one column each.
The chicken cordon blue is nicely fried, the chicken is juicy and there is a layer of ham around the chicken too!
Normally Japanese curry will give you a kind of sweet taste, but theirs with a bit of spiciness,
but trust me it's not spicy at all, you can inform the staff if you love to make it extra spicy.
Unatama Don | RM20
Both portion is just fine, looks small at the first glance but it can fills you.
Unatama Don is like Oyakodon but they just change the chicken thigh to grilled unagi, I know exactly how to cook it,
but I always skip the seaweed and scallion part, these enhance the taste of Unatama Don perfectly.
You can just add on RM3 to make it a set, you get yourself extra green tea and mushroom miso soup with the price.
Ryu | RM14 . Kaiju | RM16
I wanted to order Momo at first (as I like the name more, sound cute), too bad they did not served it that day.
So I change it to Ryu instead, it's a mixture of lemonade and homemade roselle syrup,
two frozen longan is served on top of the drink, it's pretty refreshing to have this drink on the humid day.
As for my BF, he ordered Kaiju, a premium stone-ground Uji matcha, milo mountain and cane syrup soaked pearl.
I knew BF order this because of its name, Kaiju, we went to Fuku the next day after we watched Pacific Rim, laugh
The drink is creamy and taste rich with the help of milo powder, strongly recommended!
