An upscale Mamak establishment, Teh Tarik Place is a franchised brand that has recently stepped foot in Butterworth, Penang. The cafe has a menu almost similar to most Mamak places except... the items are priced higher but in a reasonable manner. It has a young, vibrant interior decor but the staff was not well-trained. I did try to ask for some recommendations but to no avail. My orders were messed up either. When asked about my order... I was told that they have scrapped away the receipt. Teh Tarik Place occupies a lot at Sunway Perdana, the new shop lots behind Sunway Carnival Mall, Butterworth.
I did not feel like having any rice so I had Mee Rebus (Rm 8.35) instead. It took them more than 40 minutes to serve to me as.... they have forgotten about my order. The presentation of the food could be more sincere, the arrangement was too random- blanched Chicken, Shrimp, hard-boiled Eggs, julienned Lettuce and cubed Potatoes. To be fair, the gravy was decent; slightly sweet with spicy notes. It was a tad too dry nevertheless. This might not happen should they use a flat plate to serve the noodles. Not too bad if you ask me but they would definitely need to improve on their service speed.
The temptation of ordering Kaya Butter Toast/ Roti Bakar (Rm 3.90) was a huge mistake. Two slices of cold, miserable, stale bread smeared with Kaya/ Coconut Jam and Butter were served to my table. They were not even toasted evenly, the outer layer was dry and gritty. This could be one of the worst Kaya Butter Toast ever.
