QE II, Tanjong City Marina

Tell me which bistro, pub, restaurant is a talk of the town right now?? Hehehehe… I mean in Penang, la!!!

Well, I didn’t know this place until my friends told me about it. Since Friday, after work, hubby and I didn’t plan to cook at home and decided to eat out and this place is the place for the night.

This area is getting real hip nowadays, at night you’ll see lots of people, mostly youngsters come here for drinking session, gathering, meeting up with friends… and it’s like Bangsar! Hip, energetic, happening!!
I was told their pizza is good, home made crust & rich fillings. I didn’t have that but ordered a Spaghetti Arrabiata. Honestly, this is good!! The tomato pastes are perfectly match with this dried chili flakes that make this so rich in aroma.
Before the main course, we both actually ordered soup, I was conservative, didn’t want to try on others but only mushroom. I guess they were using the wild mushrooms, blend and cook with cream and garlic. Taste wise was so so, not that bad, but I find that something is missing, which I can’t tell what is that.
Another bowl of soup is Lobster Bisque, it taste nice based on hubby’s review. He was telling me that it will be perfect if they could serve with toasted bread.
After the soup, here comes our main course. Like I said earlier, I didn’t order Pizza for myself but a Spaghetti Arrabiata. Hubby got himself a QE’s Special Crusty Lamb. The outer layer of the lamb was crispy, and the meat are tender and juicy. It was unbelievable nice.
After the meal, he loves to have a cup of coffee, well, he didn’t get anything like that but a glass of Mocha Coffee instead.

Overall the food isn’t that bad, environment is superb romantic, as you could see yacht floating at the marina bay, and it’s also a place for friends meeting up for food, for drink. It’s cozy, and comfortable. The only thing is slightly disappointed is the food waiting time is rather long, beside that paying bills as well. It took 20 minutes for a bill.

Oh ya, how much have I spent, about RM117.40 for the meal. A lovely dinner with a cozy atmosphere and nice sea breeze, I guess that’s worth. And also you’ll have a quality time where you could spent with your loved one. Isn’t this marvelous?
