The food is ok with good presentation ...
The price is reasonable ...
The service is fast fast fast ...
What is your problem ?
Why is it on the NO GO List ???
Here we go ...
Very Bad Ambience
It is always noisy here. You can't even here yourself what more the person you are dining with.
If you wanna come here for a quick lunch then yes, this is the place, fast in, fast out, best you come alone so you don't need to shout and strain to listen.
You just feel pressured to LEAVE ...
Well they may not say it right at your face but before you finish your meal, your friend's plate has been cleared, they have already wiped off the crumb your friend left on the table.
Woosh ... woosh ... woosh ...
Long black is OK but the milk is COLD !
Cappuccino SUCK ! BIG TIME !
Your car gets BLOCKED !
Well it is not a big thing if the customers double park, right ?
But if you tell the waitress and she tells you ... "er ... just HONK and the owner will come out"
then it is not very nice to make annoying noises when others are having their meal.
Here is the BEST part.
YOU Have To Pay For SUCK Coffee !
This one is the last straw ...
So we sent back the coffee and they come back saying, our cappuccino tastes like that.
How bout you choose another type of coffee.
So we chose another long black.
And waiter said WHAT !!!
Even though you choose long black, we still have to charge you cappuccino price!!!
Ok, it is only RM 1 difference so we decided making a fuss is just a waste of time.
POOR POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE
Would have made hell of a difference if the waiter said ...
"So sorry, for the inconvenience, please choose another coffee from our menu, it would be on the house, have a nice day (smile, smile)
Wake up ! I was just dreaming :-p
So in summary,
Noisy-Rush-Suck Cappuccino-Poor Customer Service
This is why Harvest Inn is on the NO GO list.
Well, all said, the choice is yours.
If you still wanna have a try here is where it is :
Have a Nice Day :-)

This one is a local favourite among those who live in the area.
Hidden somewhere in Taman Bukit Jambul ... google maps will show you.
Very simple decor inside.
They actually have 2 shops on the same row, don't worry about getting into the wrong one, cause same owners :-) both are the same.
The MUST order here is the ...
Indonesian Prawn in Claypot
This dish can be eaten on its own with plates and plates of rice just with the gravy.
Yup, you heard me right.
Even if you are not a rice person.
It is so rich with flavours and I believe loads of santan, but once in a blue moon guess it is alright to indulge :-p
Then we have veggies and salad yew char koay.
All taste good.
I am sure they have lots of other yummy dishes but there were only 2 of us.
Price is pretty affordable.
Lots of middle income with young kids come here.
The thing that impresses me most is the super efficient service.
If you are in a rush somewhere or very hungry, this is the place to go.
Food is served very fast.
Hope you like this local delight.
Best time to go is on a weekday just before dinner time.
Enjoy ... Bon Apetite ...

Artsy Fartsy Penang ...
Here I come :-)
We Penangites are enjoying loads of goodies with the sudden cultural awareness.
It is all well and good, gives us good reason to sit back, enjoy and relax ...
Hmmm ... all the time.
Here we are featuring one of the smaller cafes in the old city.
Nice place to sit and relax while in between the sticky hot weather looking at all the street and wire art.
Why not sit down and have a coffee.
They serve Musetti coffee here, not local coffee.
Nice and cosy with friendly staff
Free wifi if you need a quick update.
Even has a special corner promoting hand made baby shoes.
So many around, just gotta go around and look for the one you like most.
I try to go to the ones which are not so crowded.
This is a nice one if you wanna do some catching up with friends.
On a weekday, you may have difficulty looking for a car park,
the trick is too go a few more rounds ...
Remember FREE parking till 15th of February 2014 !

The worst time to eat Chinese food is Chinese New Year ...
Lots of people crowding in to the little island to get a taste of its very best during the festive season and the holiday craze.
Food will be overpriced and may not be as good and as fresh as it is.
So Foodie has decided to recommend a Southern Indian option.
Try Passions of Kerala at New World Park.
Along Burma Road in the front and Hutton Lane at the back.
Also ample carpark for all.
Deep fried bitter gourd slices is a must order.
Lamb Masala is superb.
Also very well known for it's fried fish.
So here is how we do it ...
Order the banana leaf rice set and feel free to as for more portions of rice and veg.
Pretty reasonable as well.
This is a bill that fed 7 pax in mid last year.
They also have a branch at Island Glades.
City folks prefer it here due to its location.
Both are as good ...
Happy welcoming the Year of the Horse !
