RICE etc @ Straits Quay, Penang

Rice.etc has been closed.
Rice.etc is the café that is your friend, your taste with over 20 varieties of dishes and tantalizing a la carte to choose from the whole day long. -RICE etc-

First of all, thanks to Ezivoucher always brings us a lower price with delicious meals.
I was attracted by this:

MY 50% Deal- RICE Etc (Straits Quay) RICE your Friend; RICE your Taste for only RM5.99 7 types of Main Course to choose + Drinks + Snowy Ice

I thought it is situated at Ground Floor, at last found it in another corner, nearby the car park of 1st level. ~PHEW~

1st impression of this restaurant, it is Santorini feel for me.
Blue and White as the theme.
I like the environment there especially the design and decoration there.

When we reached there, we didn't book in advance, so the lady (boss, perhaps) told us it is fully booked inside, maybe we can sit at outside or come for another day.

I just took out my camera, started to grab some photos of it, cause I couldn't manage to get a seat inside.
But then, that lady told us we can sit for a table, but the next customers will be arrive at 7pm, so which means, we must leave before 7pm.

I get a chance to enjoy my dinner inside there.

 We chose 2 nasi rendang for the main course.

FYI, you can pick your own choice by topping up RM10 for the salad bar and soup.There are choices like toast, sandwiches and imported brewed coffee all in the warm cozy corner also.

I believe nowadays many restaurants would have a corner for magazines.
If got Casanova musics and a cup of coffee, I think I will spend my day there :-)

A corner for writing to win prize for mother, as Mother's Day is around the corner.
I took part for it too ^^

 Nasi rendang. 

 I discovered they provide 1 whole egg instead of half of the egg. *wink*

Self service for the drinks, there are two options: mango peach and tropical pineapple.
I prefer mango peach :-)

We get mango and asam favor for our snowy ice.
First try for asam favor, in love with it!!

The exterior area, looks nice.

The exterior area (smoking area as well).

 Do you have the same feel with me?
In love to the sunset view here?

  5. Cece, thanks for your invitation, but can't make it 2mr...will go n try on it if I'm going there :)

  6. Hi there,

    Actually Im here to clarify certain areas in which i hope that you do not find it offending or insincere.

    As regards to the previous message, it was just a tiny invitation to you as you have blog about Rice.etc before where there isn't much about Rice.etc back then.. I do sincerely thank u for tht beautiful pictures and ur write-up.

    So with this recent invitation, i was actually informing you on the changes that has happened to Rice.etc and along the way extending this information on our opening promotion thats all.

    I hope this could clarify that we were't looking for a free publicity or any insincerity.

    Thank you.
    This message does not have any pressure or whatsoever presence to change your view but hoping to clarify certain matters in certain areas.

    Have a good day! :)

  7. Cece, Hi thanks for your clarify.Any misunderstand for "free publicity"? As I wasn't being invited for any review, just you were sharing with me the relaunch of Rice to Bing Bing...

    Thinking going to there this few days after read so many good reviews from other bloggers.

    Anyway, Congratulations for doing it well.
