Straits Quay Hot

The group behind this mall is the E&O Group, famed for the E&O Hotel and Lone Pine Hotel at Batu Feringghi. This development is Penang's first retail marina with shops, boutiques and restaurants. Delicious cafe, owned also by the E&O Group, made its debut in Penang in Straits Quay. One can take a cruise or a water limousine to E&O Hotel's pier.

Good food and architecture
I absolutely love this place during Christmas. The decorations and the huge Christmas tree at the front of the mall promise a great ambience and mood for shoppers. What is lacking in this mall though, is its ability to attract big name brands to set up outlets here. There is a serious void in the shopping area in this place.
The restaurants do make up a little for the lack of shopping experience. There's Chocolate Passion, Delicious and some other bistros here. I'm glad that they brought in Delicious so I don't have to travel to KL for my fix. All in all, a good place for food but not for shopping.
