Buddhist veggie cafe near the jetty - Edit

Large spacious cafe, only open for lunch (11.30am - 2.30pm) as it's in the heart of George Town, on Beach Street (Lebuh Pantai).

Went towards the end of lunch service, it was just getting less busy & staff looked tired & getting ready for the next day.

You order & pay at the counter from a menu (English & Chinese), take a number & it's served to you.

Ordered the nasi lemak - with sweet rather than spicy curry, nothing like any nasi lemak I've tasted. Brown rice seems to lack the coconut flavour, which is what nasi lemak is supposed to be. But fills the stomach.

Added a fried tofu on the side - again, nothing remarkable.

You clear your own table by sorting cutlery into tubs.

Somewhere to eat if you're in the area, otherwise, George Town offers plenty of other options.

To be fair, there were other dishes on the menu (noodles, claypots & sushi) which other people ordered & may have enjoyed.

Pros: Location

Cons: No flavour, Limited opening hours

good but limited choice - Edit

The food is good especially the char kuay teow and Tom yam. The Rojak is so so only.

Good food - Edit

The place was easy to find. Laid out very nicely inside. The dumpling soup was good. Sweet potato fries very good! The tom yam soup was not that great. It wasn't like a traditional thai variety with coconut milk. Pretty inexpensive. We got all that for $7US.

Pros: Clean, Nice staff, Inexpensive

Cons: Have to clear own dishes, English not great

Quay Cafe - a caring place to eat - Edit

Walk into the Quay Cafe and be amazed by the simple yet beautiful interior with exposed brick walls and very high ceilings.

Located just off Beach Street (Jalan Pantai), this place is a veggie heaven. Run by volunteers of Tzu Chi Foundation.

The menu is not extensive but there is enough to choose from. Choices include rice dishes such as the healthy set and happy set meals and a veg filled bento box as well as noodle dishes and side dishes.

You put in your order at the self service desk and given a number. Food is then delivered to your table fairly promptly. Pick up your own cutlery. After eating you take your plates, cutlery etc to the clearing station.

Worth a visit.

Pros: Simple and tasty food, Great value, Beautiful interior
