    July 2015, dinner, drinks

    One evening during our stay in George Town, Penang, Malaysia we had dinner and drinks at Farquhar’s Bar at the Eastern & Oriental.

    Please see also the reviews for the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, The Ferringhi Grill at Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, the Blue Mansion – A Cheong Fatt Tze Legacy and Sarkies Corner at the E&O.

    The bar is small, intimate and has a cozy atmosphere.

    We arrived just in time for Happy Hour – there’s a list of liquors and a daily changing cocktail, in our case the Blue Lagoon -, but there was nothing we really fancied, so we had a look at the a la carte menu instead.

    We chose a cocktail, Acqua Panna, hot chocolate and a Kahlua. We also had tapas, some of them were a chicken quesadilla and bangers and mash. The food was tasty and kept up with overall Colonial style of the Bar and the famous E&O Hotel.

    Our bar tender had to check if the still water was available due to the large wedding party I mentioned in the Sarkies Corner review. We were lucky.

    The meal was delicious and the service and value was good, while the setting is memorable.

    We would return for a drink and snack should we return to George Town.

    Would we recommend this Bar to a friend? YES!
    Would we want to visit this Bar in our future? YES!

    Thank you and safe travels. :)
