I often saw my classmates going to this cafe back when I was in college, but never had the chance to go try it out. Even on this day, I ended up here because the cafe I originally planned to go to was closed, and this was the only other place nearby. Certainly not the best reason to go somewhere but I can’t say that I regretted it.
Harvest In is situated at Jalan Irrawaddy and it was quite easy to find parking there. It’s a simple looking building and nothing about the interior or exterior stands out, so I was wondering how it has managed to become such a popular spot. I got my answer as I gazed through the menu: there is a variety of choices but not so many that it’s overwhelming. Most importantly, the prices are very affordable. The reason people shy away from frequenting cafes is because even though they may have fancy food and insta-worthy settings, it’s often too expensive. But Harvest In is unique in that way, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was actually very reasonably priced.

This is going to sound like a dumb complaint, but one thing that did bother me is that the tables were too high for the low chairs. As a short person, that was a little annoying. Also, even though we chose to sit at a slightly more secluded area, the restaurant was rather noisy. The background music playing was gloomy and didn’t set the mood. So imagine a lot of cutlery sounds, a baby crying in the back, and lots of chatter… and then the gloomy music to top it all off. But to be honest, I can’t criticize the noise as it was only due to the busy crowd and the ongoing flow of customers.
The food we ordered was very satisfying, nothing much to it. Both the chickens were perfectly cooked and tasty in their own way. The side salad and mashed potato complimented the dishes very well and we both left the cafe feeling full. Here is what we ordered:
I can see why this is a popular spot among students, very filling food at good prices- it’s definitely worth a try!
