Since Georgetown was listed in the UNESCO world heritage site, added with the attractions from the famous Ernest's murals, today, Georgetown has become an international platform which has attracted the tourists from all over the world. And because of this, Georgetown is slowly being commercialize. Hostel, restaurants, cafes, art galleries and many more started to appear in Georgetown. Two months ago, Folks Cafe has began their business at Lebuh Acheh and they are proud with their food and service quality.

Folks Cafe is a cafe under Flash Back Homestay. It is run by two beautiful girls, Adel and Cheez. Adel was the one that served us that day and she spoke a very fluent English!

Thanks to Jazz for inviting me to this review session. Along with us that day were Trista, Jennifer, Enqvist and Laygin.

The interior design of Folks Cafe is simple and neat. The tables are arranged at a distance that is comfortable for customers to dine in.

Customers have to order their foods and drinks at the counter at the back after choosing their preferred foods and drinks on the menu. There are few high chairs being set up at the counter which make it feels like a bar.

There was a fox's and a rabbit's drawing on the wall of Folks Cafe. These animals are actually represent Adel's and Cheez's personality. Who is the fox and who is the rabbit? Well, go and check it out by yourself~ :P

Well, I am a nature lover. When I saw the green plants being place on the wall, it makes me feel comfortable and close to nature.

The green plants are put on the iron design on the wall. Simple yet special!

Folks Cafe have prepared some books for those who like to read. While waiting for the foods to be served, reading is a healthy thing to do to kill the time.

The foods at Folks Cafe are divided into 5 categories, all day brunch, pasta, nibblets, skinny pizza and crunchy salads. Adel has prepared five courses for us, each from different categories. Adel told us that all the dressings were homemade and they were using the high quality ingredients.

Pasta : Carbonara - RM16

Bacon and egg in cream sauce garnished with spring onions and bonito. Since some customers do not like cheese, so Folks Cafe didn't add any cheese into the carbonara. If you would like to add some cheese to your carbonara, you can request it from Folks Cafe and they will provide you a can of Parmesan Cheese powder.

Skinny Pizza : Smoked Salmon - RM18

This is the first time I have tasted the pizza with smoked salmon as topping. It was quite fresh for me! For the taste, it was not as strong if compared to the one we normally eat and the skin is not crunchy enough. Adel said that the pizza skin was not crispy may due to the oven problem, she said that it was supposed to be crispy.

For the drinks, Adel let us choose any drinks we like on the menu.

The drink that I ordered was orange juice. The taste was not so strong and I cant really taste the orange. Adel said that the juices are all zero sugar added so it wont tastes sweet.
