It’s a medium size neighborhood shopping Centre. Not really have much for my senses. All I can say is that the Burger King here has free Wifi.

It is located at the exit near the Courthouse. The staffs are friendly. The tuna wrap is great even without cheese. Of course, the regular Tuna Wrap comes with two slices of cheese. The seatings are rather limited (30 seats, 12 tables and one long...More
