AEON Seberang Perai City @ Bandar Perda, Bukit Mertajam

22nd August 2008 is the opening day for one of the biggest [tag]shopping mall[/tag] in Northern Malaysia – AEON Seberang Perai City or also known as [tag]Jusco Bandar Perda[/tag] in Bukit Mertajam. It is such a nice coincidence that I happen to be in [tag]Bukit Mertajam[/tag] at the same time it opened the doors to the public.
To be honest I have been waiting for this mall to open for years. Because, we the BM kias really deserve a better mall and [tag]AEON Seberang Perai City[/tag] is the perfect answer.
I think the one of the most exciting part is that the first Big Apple Donuts & Coffee outlet in [tag]Penang[/tag] will also open here. It is something food bloggers in Penang have been anticipating. Best of all, it is only 10 minutes away from my house!

The first TGV cinema (5 screens) in Penang will also open here. I love their cheaper movie tickets and the nicer and crunchier popcorn, compared to GSC of course.
The mall is defnitely nicer to shop compared to Queensbay or Sunway Carnival, as the participating outlets are more interesting and well known.
As a food blogger, I can’t escape from showing the restaurants to you guys lol.

big apple donut seberang perai city

There is a particular section on the ground floor where all the restaurants are gathered at. Big Apple Donuts & Coffee – seriously the first you should go and try lol.

black canyon

Directly opposite Big Apple is the Black Canyon Restaurant. I didn’t really see the menu but mostly are coffee items and Western fusion stuff.

Che Go Korean BBQ

Che Go Korean BBQ Restaurant. Check out the very nice interior!

hongkie recipe

Hongkie Recipe restaurant – I am guessing this is related to the Hongkie in E-Gate.

johnny's restaurant

Opposite Hongkie is Johnny’s Restaurant. Most of you will know this, it serves steamboat and Thai food.

food & tea

Food & Tea Hong Kong Restaurant – competitor to Hongkie?

ichiban ramen

Ichiban Ramen

sushi queen

Sushi Queen - wife of Sushi King? lol. I would be happier if it was Sakae Sushi though.

splendid cafe

Splendid Cafe – Looks very similar to Secret Recipe. But their menu seems to contain cakes and coffee only. Quite big actually, it takes up almost 2 shoplots.

shihlin

And lastly, Shih Lin Taiwan Snacks which is scheduled to open in September. I wouldn’t get too excited about Shih Lin if I were you. I tried their highly acclaimed Crispy XXL Chicken a while ago in Sunway Pyramid and all I can say it’s rubbish. Even KFC Hot n Spicy tastes like 100x better. Don’t say I didn’y warn ya lol.

mooncake stalls

And of course there are the usual McDonalds, Starbucks, Nando’s, Old Town Kopitiam, Baskin Robbins, Kenny Roger’s etc. But they are already in other malls in Penang so I won’t talk about them.
Anyway, at the time of posting, there are hundreds of cars heading to AEON Seberang Perai City. So, the traffic jam today is pretty bad especially at the railway track section opposite Bandar Perda.
To make things worse, the traffic light stays red for a minute but only 10-15 seconds or so as green omg. So, the alternative route I’d suggest using is taking Jalan Muthu Palaniappan, the one near Utama Plaza and Ng Yam Huat food court.
So, have you went there already? Do you like the mall?

    I just been to here this afternoon… very high class with the high ceiling.
    Too bad… my first visit to Splendid Cafe the service gave me bad impression. Not only they wrongly charge my bill me but also wrongly enter my credit card transaction… until I am double charged… damm screw up and will never patronize them again…

    vk: I think that’s due to new staff.. not trained enough. What about the food? Is it good?

    Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks is already in Queensbay Mall, so what so excited about it?
    I tried the Queensbay Shihlin and they taste as good as 1Utama. Never really tried Shihlin at Gurney though.

    vk: Oh, Queensbay got ar? Paiseh lah I am quite outdated because I am in Selangor now mostly.

    Evey time go to this place, will definitely dine at Black Canyon. I am not crazy for Western Food, but may be attracted to its outlet decoration. Hehehe … Last time, want to go “lepak-lepak”, no place in Prai area, but at least now already got a few here…. big one….such as Sunway Carnival, Aeon Bandar Perda and Auto-City … mostly car parking is free…so you want to lepak long long time also no problem lor …:-)

    goh:

    Big Apple is at Gurney too.J.co is at Queensbay anyway.Quuensbay will be definitely more happening cause there will be a lot of events held there such as count down concert, model search and etc.Aeon SP will be same as all the Aeon branch in Malaysia like Jusco Bukit Tinggi, Tebrau City where it is are just a mall to shop.Nothing more than that. Many shops in Queensbay such as Azuma,Dragon-i,sakae shushi are not found in there too.And by the way nothing to be so excited for the opening of shih lin cause Queensbay has it too.It is a small shop at a neglected zone though.But anyway the opening of Aeon SP has provided a more variety of choices for shoppers in Penang.

  34. For starters, normally remind oneself on the Islamic dress code. Your garments needs to be extended, loose fitted and not transparent. Muslim females need to also cover their heads with a head scarf (hijab).
