The Clinic Cafe @ Gurney Plaza

On the 28th of December last year, most parts of Penang island were effected by the water disruption due to some upgrading work by PBA. Though we kept water in our house which is more than sufficient, I felt that it is extremely inconvenient since we are so used to having the taps. So, to kill more time by not using the taps I decided to bring the kids out.

Initially I read from the news that the part of Gurney was not affected but when we reached Gurney Plaza, I was dismay that they too switched off their pipes and only opened 1 toilet on each floor. Well, no choice so we walked on…

It was school holiday still and when we arrived it was almost lunch time. As usual, I really know where to go for lunch in Gurney though they have so many food outlets. I have to find places which are suitable for the kids and decided to check out the one and only theme cafe; The Clinic Cafe on the 4th floor which was previously occupied by the Food Loaf.

When we entered we were greeted by some of the staff whom brought us to our seats which I have chosen to sit at where were once sat during our visit to Food Loaf. After settling down, it was photo time and the first shot of the place is their ‘counter’ which they named it as surgery room… which is where the drinks and food were prepared…

And here is the shot for the main counter and some of their staff at work…

Not all are wearing those hospital scrubs. The guy who took our order wore a T-Shirt only.

While waiting for the waiter to come take our orders, I caught Glennedine trying to ‘flirt’ with the people on the next table! *o*

.

.

There were not much varieties as most are repeated stuff like what and what on fried rice/spaghetti. I would say the pricing is a little on the high side for the type of food but guess they have to cover the rental since that place is huge!!! And the waiter we had… aiyo! I suspected that he is very new coz he was really bad with his service! He don’t know much about the menu and I have to repeat to him so many times beside him going back and forth the counter to find out! *duh!*

.

.

They were having some lunch specials so I decided to order from there instead since it came with a drink. Had their Prawns Fried Rice which tasted quite ok. The prawns were not fresh though -_- The presentation was ok too which goes well with the theme. So, my fried rice came in the kidney dish! 😛

And knowing Darrius can’t finish that much food if I order another plate of rice or spaghetti for him, I asked if he would like to have some sandwiches instead? Since we were still in between their breakfast and lunch menu, I ordered from their breakfast set promo menu.

And here is his Ham & Cheese Sandwiches…

.

.

Darrius and his sandwiches and a glass of frizzy drink which was actually Sunquick mixed with soda water. Don’t taste that nice but they have quite a nice name for it though!!!! 😛

.

.

Overall, I quite like the cleanliness of the place. I would say the ambiance was ok too just that they have too many staff walking about or standing there watching you! 😛 Food were quite slow to come even though not many customers. And the drinks are so over-priced!

This was not our only time there so will blog about the other visit soon!
