The Durian Tree Bistro @ Tropics Eight Suites, Georgetown, Penang.

The Durian Tree Bistro has got no relationship with Durians at all, the newly opened restaurant at Tropics Eight Suites is related to Duesey Coffee. The place is hard to notice from far but once you are near the entrance to Tropic Eight Suites, you will find this restaurant right next to the main entrance. The place has a classy, sophisticated setting... with various seating options- bar chair and table, sofa or the usual dining table. Menu-wise, it has a Western menu with quite a number of familiar dishes- from pasta to meat dishes... and affordability seems to be one of the strengths. If you don't mind the slightly smaller portion, this is a comfortable and quiet place for a casual Western meal. 

Najib (Rm 16.80)

Spaghetti Caponata (Rm 18.90)

The Duck Night (Rm 15.80)

The starter- The Duck Night was merely pan fried Smoked Duck Breast served on a bed of greens with Chinese Chili Oil and a side of fried Potatoes. The flavor and texture was pretty straight-forward. We then had Najib... an unusual name for a main dish- roasted Spring Chicken (half bird) served with a side of Fried Potatoes (over Brown sauce). The Spring Chicken was juicy and tender... well marinated and beautifully seasoned. The Brown Sauce had not done much in its aid- a little watery and diluted to our liking. The serving portion was a little small for me though. The Spaghetti Caponata was alright- seasoning was spot on, texture was good but it lacked a surprising factor... as though we were having an ordinary plate of Tomato-based Spaghetti.
