I Canton Cafe (GPS: 5.41226, 100.3096) is a coffee shop along Jalan Air Itam in Dato Kramat, Penang. Not to be confused with Canton-i, which is an unrelated F&B business, I Canton Cafe specialises in Cantonese-style braised duck and trotters. There are presently three I Canton Cafe locations in Penang, at Prima Tanjung, Perak Road and right here at Dato Kramat, with a fourth outlet to open soon.
I had the opportunity of eating there last night and meeting up with its proprietor, Mr Tham. The braised duck and trotters were incredibly tender and delicious. I learned from Mr Tham that the meat is cooked in a pressure cooker, which takes just ten minutes to cook. Other dishes include the braised beancurd and eggs. The items are eaten with either rice or porridge. In addition to the braised duck and trotters, the coffee shop also offers various ready dishes such as curry chicken, preserved vegetables, and so on.
I Canton Cafe is open daily from 6:30pm in the evening until 4:00am the next morning, serving nightowls looking for supper.
