Straits Quay is a project by the Eastern & Oriental Berhad, it’s also Penang first and only retail marina up to date. Many had also told me, how beautiful it is, and how wonderful and different from other malls.
HOWEVER, NONE tell me that Straits Quay is a ghost shopping complex in the noon time, even in the weekend! The mall is still empty with retail stores, however, it’s totally a different case with restaurants.
I absolutely no idea which to dine in, since most of them are new to me. In the end, Kaffa Kafe is my choice. Reasons? iPad available!!!!
There are 6 iPad in the restaurant, available for customers who dine here. They also have their menu inside the iPad. However, games are limited since almost all of the games are demo version, but with free wifi available, hell yea!
For an appetizer, ours is quite a heavy one, Grilled Beef Bites @ RM13.90. Well, the beef itself is juicy and not hard, BUT no matter how hard I try, I just unable to bite it into smaller pieces lol. Hence….. 1.5/10
LY’s choice are the BBQ Chicken Chop @ RM16.90. Well, the sauce is good, but the chicken itself is tasteless. I wonder what chicken they used =.=” 2.5/10
The waiter recommend me that their Homemade Lamb Shank @ RM29.90 is very good and famous. Seriously, sorry to say, it’s the worst ever lamb I ever had. The meat itself is not tender enough, tasted bland and forgetful. Sigh. 2.5/10
Price wise it’s ain’t cheap since it’s at Straits Quay. However, the food is just too bad that doesn’t justify the price tag. Service was okay though. Will I come back again? Not until they changed, and someone went and come back full with praises.
