  1. The trouble with Muthu’s is that its inconsiderate patrons parked their bikes in the car parking lot in front of the eatery when there is a motorcycle parking lot just next to it. This has been pointed out to the operators but they are indifferent to the complaint. Their apparently Indian national workers are far from being civic conscious. In that sense not your friendly restaurenteur.

    1. Exactly! Many assumed that pork free food is consummable by moslems. How terribly wrong. Penang moslems know well to avoid such eateries. But outstation folks on the other hand thinking that the food served look so malayish thought must be halal. Also true of banana leaf restaurants.
