Best Pokemon Hunting Spots In Penang

Hello, Pokemon Trainers! It has been more than a month since Pokemon made its way to our shores, yet you can find people at every corner standing near Pokestops, walking in circles in order to hatch their eggs, and walking around with their hunting caps on just to be able to catch em all.

The game IS addictive, we feel you! BUT even a Pokemon Master needs rest after a long day of hunting – we at Venuescape compiled a list of places where you can hunt AND eat at the same time! So, here are some cafes in Penang that won’t stray you away from your mission to being the very best! #soldieron

Heritage Area :

The Georgetown Heritage Area is filled with Pokestops and Pokemons! You can start from the Jetty all the way to Armenian Street. Please don’t cycle, just pretend it’s leg day and walk your way to becoming a Pokemon Master! Walking is THE way around this area because legitimately there’re Pokestops in every corner! But  here are a couple of places to get some goodies – Reaching Up Mural, Yap Temple and Tiger Mural!

Once you have replenished your Item bag, it is time for you to refuel! After all that walking around the Jetty, bet you need to grab a bite! Black Kettle has recently launched a new menu and their pastries are always getting better, day by day!

The Constant Gardener Cafe

A quaint café to chill in after walking around in Esplanade! There are Grass Pokemons there too! If you’re not feeling for coffee or tea then opt for their smoothies! We recommend the Tropical Mango. It’s so refreshing and simply heavenly! They may not have a full menu but their chicken pie, croissant, and cakes are just bliss!

The Alley

Oh my goodness, there are a lot of Pokestops nearby! Mainly because it’s near Love Lane and Chulia Street, so The Alley is just around the corner. Just get your energy back and start catching those cheeky Pokemons in Little India after grabbing churros/cronuts and a good glass of cold brew coffee!

Kim Haus

It’s pretty near to Armenian Street, and we all know we have so many things in our bags sometimes and the only way to vent out that frustration and strategize again is with good food and coffee! Plus, Kim Haus is a great place to chill!

Hygge

Pronounced as Hoogah, they serve excellently divine food and a mean cup of coffee! So cycle your way over there or just park your car. Hey, we know you mostly drive around to catch your Grass Pokemons -Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Oddish, Gloom, Vileplume! No shame in that or cheating while trying so hard to hatch that damn egg! Grab a good hearty meal before you head out for more Pokemon training!

Town Area :

By town area, we mean the Komtar area. If you don’t know yet, along the UMNO building, there are SO MANY Pokestops, it’s ridiculous! Most of us are guilty of driving around in circles just to fill our bags with goodies! Plus, there a few rare *Electric* Pokemons to catch at that area too, if you’re lucky and they don’t run off! Also look at how many Pokestops are there in Macalister Mansion?!

Bagan Eighteen

Bagan Eighteen, formerly known as Macalister Mansion, is a Pokestop itself, did you know? SINCE, we already know that there are a lot of excitement for us down the road so might as well, relax at Macalister Mansion first? It may be too overwhelming that you’ll lose your mind so, why not stop by at The Living Room and grab a nice pot of TWG Tea.

Tavern in The Park

After you’re done with Macalister Road, just come by to Tavern in The Park. Ahhh, Hin Bus Depot itself has a few Pokestops so while you’re grabbing a bite out of their crostinis or burgers, you can just keep spinning on that Pokestop! #gimmeallthegoodies

Macallum Connoisseur

We would tell you to go to the cafes in Karpal Singh drive but we know too well that it’ll be packed with people and we wouldn’t want our best Pokemon Trainers to cramp with the others now, do we? So a quick drive to Macallum Connoisseures won’t hurt, right? Relax and grab a cuppa then!
