Restaurants in Tanjong Tokong – 43 Restaurants
This is our first time trying this restaurant after been recommended by my brother. My wife and me tried the Braised Lambshank and Pesto Chicken and found they are below our expectation and overpriced. In my humble opinion, the lambshank is not as fresh and soft like Secret Recepie; for the Pesto Chicken, the portion is a bit overwhelmed for my wife and it is not really impressive. I am curious maybe we are not trying the right stuff but the food attendant is not helpful and the menu had no picture at all showing the real presentation of food. I think this shouldnt be happened in a professional restaurant who demand higher than average price tag and for us they under-deliver and a no for us.
Tari Café once was a small little burger stall selling burgers along the Penang famous Gurney Drive seafront. The burger stall attracted visitors walking pass with their dancing act of flying the burgers and receiving it on the toasted bread and squeezing the sauce and ingredients with style and skills. Because of its demo, people would patronized and order their burgers while watching the little act. It is also notably of it good taste with the burgers grilled to perfection. The Penang government was very concern of the cleanliness of the Gurney Drive as these hawkers left over a substantial amount of rubbish to be clean up each day and these has prompted the government to find a more suitable place for them to do business. Eventually, a new place opposite the seafront was setup to house all the hawkers and to maintain the cleanliness of the Gurney Drive seafront. From then onwards, Tari Café was moved to an old Malay house at the crossroad junction of Tanjung Tokong somewhere in 1988. In front of the Tari Café was a motor cycle repair garage owned by Kim Chye. After a short one year period, this motor cycle garage was relocated to make way for Tari Café to expand it business from burger to mee jawa, and western food.
