Bella Marino @ Straits Quay
Had a good catch up dinner with Suchi & Andy - I was the one who recommended to check this place out since MC said all the dishes he tried to far were good.
Table setting & menu
My Mixed Fruit Punch & Andy's Apple Juice
Refreshing - I liked my fruit punch
Suchi's Mango Smoothie
We ordered 3 dishes for sharing:-
I liked this a lot - Carbonara sauce was not too runny yet not too thick; fettucine cooked to the right softness. It was a pleasure to indulge.
Pizza Con Pollo (RM26.90)
As per described in its menu, the Pizza has roasted chicken meat, turkey ham and pineapple as topping. This was just okay for me since I don't fancy breast meat :P
This was below expectation - the risotto was too wet, the seafood had an overpowering seafood smell and the whole taste was just odd in a bad way. The sauce tasted as if it had been cooked with undiluted water. If I were to make a return I'd definitely be checking out its steak since MC said that it's one of the best he had in the whole of Penang - what a statement!
