Stone Age Cafe @ Pusat Perniagaan Gemilang, Bukit Mertajam, Penang

Stone Age Cafe @ Pusat Perniagaan Gemilang, Bukit Mertajam

After being awhile, more and more shop lot appear nearby my house. And mostly the shop were occupied by restaurant and cafe. And for today, I need to chain the clock back to Stone Age. It is a newly opened cafe - Stone Age cafe  and obviously it will decor with all Stone Age decoration surrounding the place. Apparently, all the people here are come for their decor and the creative Hot Stone meal.
The outlook of the "Stone Age", with wooden tables and chairs, the ground is covered by little stones, I like their efforts and creativity in making it special. 
A big trunk of tree stand alone in the center of cafe. The dim lighting there was good too, suitable for couples to have candle light dinner here.
I felt like walking into a cave. although the stone on the ceiling and on the top of the bar were not so real.
All stone meals here come with 4 side dishes which can choose from the list below : 
a) Fried Rice 炒饭
b) Sweet Corn 玉蜀黍
c) French Fries 炸薯条
d) Mashed Potato 薯泥
e) Coleslaw 凉拌卷心菜
f) Spicy Wedges 炸薯角
The East Meets West 鸳鸯岩石料理  RM16.80 
The meat of your choice will be served on a piping hot stone, where it was still raw when served, so you can put in your efforts to cook it. I am not very sure why it is called as The East Meets West, but basically it is a combination of duck meat and chicken! Served together with 4 side dishes. I preferred the duck meat over the chicken, marinated really well, even though the duck looks greasy with a layer of skin and a layer of fat, but it is perfect to be grilled on the stone! Juicy and tender and tempting fragrance!
Stone Age Chicken  鸡肉岩石料理  RM16.80
Stone Age Chicken Chop is not too special, but eating something on the stone is definitely a new experience for me. I have a lot of fun in cooking it.
Stone Age Tilapia Fish  金凤鱼岩石料理  RM18.80
We normally only can get a steamed or fried Tilapia in KL, surprisingly, the Tilapia is on the stone now. The fish is fresh, squeeze in some lemon juice to make it better. Please eat it fast, because the heat from the stone is continuous, it will cause the fish overcooked and the texture will be slightly poor.
Chicken Sticks on Stone  鸡肉串烧  RM17.80
Erm.. I would say the chicken sticks are not so suitable to be on stone, hard to make it fully cooked, the waitress even changed a new stone for us to ensure the chicken stick is cooked and safe to consume. And the combination of chicken and eggplants is rather weird too, perhaps capsicum will be more suitable and match?
Blackpepper Grilled Chicken 烤鸡扒 RM14.80
If you afraid the oil will splash out from a on-stone-meal, you can also select a ready dish from their menu.
Grilled Fish and Chips 烤鱼扒  RM15.80
At the end of the dinner, the food here were not bad as I thought before I come in. I love the stone grilled meal and I marked it as my favorite of the day. Beside that, the ambiance here was quite unique enough while enjoying this special meal. Surprisingly for me, the price here were almost the same with KL/PJ price but the people here now are willing to spend more just to get something special. Claiming for business plan soon.
