Fat sells

Do you , like us , continue to be stumped by the neverending puzzle to the elusive question ...
...what makes a cafe or restaurant successful ?

Why are some shops crowded at all hours of the day while others are close to empty ...and ready to close permanently ?

We sometimes ponder deep and try to get a feel of the taste that might unlock the secret criteria that determines success or failure of an eatery.

For example does the name of a shop have any bearing on attracting customers ? How about the color of the staff uniforms ? Or the length of the cashier's hair ? Even the mis-location of the toilet , who knows ?

Ask any normal guy and he will tell you as a matter of fact that " the food must be of acceptable quality and the price right " , followed by "of course lah must be convenient to eat there..".

Sounds so easy right !

We certainly think the name is important , especially if it sounds bountiful and prosperous ...like this Cafe situated inside the Billion Supermarket, Seri Manjung. Then take away that meat .

Viola !

Welcome to Seri Manjung's bsg ranked Top 3 cafe ! Fantastic logo and a name that will make many obese happy people proud . Quite delicious Malaysian and Western favourites . Simple menu.

Superbly tasty & fragrant assam laksa from RM2.50 , nyonyalicious nasi ayam pedas from RM5.50 and impeccably stylish fish n chips from RM9.90

Crowded most times and a local success story . Its something bout that name ...

That question was on my mind today too when I saw an extra long queue outside Fong Lye at The Gardens. I still don't have the answer.

Same here...but I do agree that name and the image of the restaurant or the way they market their products!~

Of course, taste of food is always important..there's so many factors!~:p

Yah that assam laksa steals the limelight.
we need to sit down long and proper and then deeply ponder , but first we shall dine n wine ! The answer is awaiting

we are supposed to study why SS2 Murni is doing superwell that even other restaurants talk about it ( notwithstanding that it was forcefully closed for health reasons a few weeks back!

you should see the husband n wife team , errr the size lah

but now old town old gals old men old things sell ?

we love your extreme sharpness to tiny details ( mini )
