Best French Toasts in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Being a subtle breakfast or a delectable dessert, French toast makes you beam all the way until the final bite. Stalking down history, it has been traced to the Roman Empire and contrary to popular belief, did not originate from France. Unlike today's outlandish varieties, the earliest version was only prepared with milk and sometimes eggs. In France, it’s called “pain perdu”, which means “lost” bread – stale bread dipped with milk and egg then fried. These days, a myriad of toppings has titivated the eggy fresh bread to a whole new level, suiting everyone’s palate. Drizzled in heavenly chocolate syrup and cherished with caramelised banana, there’s ample French toast goodness in Penang.
