At the 14th Level of Penang Swimming Club, there is a restaurant.
It is not super great but it is a good place to have a quick and decent bite.
The staff is friendly, but the trainees can be a little blur ...
The supervisor cum manager cum PR person Miss Jennifer is SUPERB!
Super helpful if you run out of ideas of what to eat.
Soft shell crab with salted eggs, Hokkien Char, Brinjal pot with salted fish, spring roll ...
Patong Fish Curry
Claypot Fish Head braised with Yam
Both the above is a must order :-)
Spring roll is pretty good too ...
One take home tip, Western food here is so-so ...
Foodie normally just go for the Chinese food here.
However, if you have a craving for Western food and is happy with sub-standard Western food then you can go ahead.
Dessert - Banana fritters with ice cream is super yummy, also another MUST order!
This is not a super duper must go place but if you have ran out of ideas, it is a rather nice place to go for a meal ... chit chat ... have a glass of wine ... relax ...
If you are not a member of the club, grab a friend who is and force your friend to buy you dinner or lunch !
Happy Weekend :-)

|Plenty of places to sit. This stall, which used to be by the roadside, has now bought up a shop lot of their own. Although they are still by the road, they now have proper seating for their customers.|
|Standard order is RM 6 per bowl.|
Very good value for money considering the amount of goodies they put inside. If you are not someone who is into spare parts, you can ask for just duck meat and koay ie the starchy carbs :-)
Don't forget to request for the ever tasty chili sauce, if you love it, you can ask for more with no extra charge...
|New seating area is nice and clean|
|Now we come to the Major Rip Off !|
The shop lot owned by the Koay Chap stall is placed next to a dessert stall.
The minimum price for the dessert is RM2.50.
Do NOT let the girls pressure you to order the dessert, unless you really want to order.
You are not required to order a drink as the stall belongs to Koay Chap stall ie. you could order other drinks from any stall or shop along Kimberley street and not specifically this one.
|The dessert is super diluted, tasteless and overpriced|
Foodie will NOT like this one ...
All in all Kimberley Street has plenty to offer.
The ambience here is different for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Have fun exploring street food at Kimberley Street.

|Another one HITS the No Go List !|
La France Cafe & Restaurant
For exact venue and opening hours, see links below
Used to be one of the hawker food stall at Northern Beach Cafe, they have undergone an upgrade to this new venue.
Food is ok, coffee (freshly brewed) is good, ambience is nice and cosy ...
very sorry to say service was WITHOUT a SMILE
this French guy just won't smile!
|The pasta ordered was average - ok|
and then ...
why no more photos ...
NOT allowed to take photos !
even the food you have ordered not allowed to take photos... I don 't remember going to French restaurants in Paris and not being allowed to take photos!
ok enough said ...
after all it is French, French, French
no more photos ...
unable to continue this post ...
if you want a good laugh, no harm giving it a try here,
Coffee is GOOD of course not at the Penang Street Food price!
By the way, if you a filthy rich, maybe you could try giving a RM100 tip,
maybe the French Guy will give you a smile...
Good Luck !!!

If you can't live without your local coffee, the coffee served here is not too bad , although it is a little on the strong side :-)
|If you are not a beef lover, there is an economy rice stall here, which is ok , but a little on the expensive side|
