Kaffa Kafe @ Straits Quay Penang

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

Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant @ Penang

Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant is 1 of my favorite restaurant to go whenever I had the cravings for Korean food (and also BBQ stuff), simply because the quality of food here is usually higher than those normal Korean restaurant.

In Daorae, besides those normal sitting area, they usually have a dining area with tatami style, and obviously you will need to take off your shoe before entering the area. Notice the white long exhaust chute on top of each table? It can be pull down to be as close as possible to the BBQ area to suck out all the smoke from it.

Like most authentic Korean restaurant, our table is invariably laid with a sumptuous array of panchan. They are given complimentary for every table if you order their BBQ dishes. Most of them taste nice, and you can always ask for free refilling. I especially love their salad.
