Best Gnocchi in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Hello Italian food lovers! A little question, what do you do when you ran out of pasta or perhaps an alternative to it? Simple, pizzas or just delve into other cuisines, we are never short of choices for sure. Conversely, in Italy, gnocchi are celebrated similarly to pasta, a true comfort dish. Rather pronounced as “Nyoo-kee”, dough made from potatoes and flour are cut into small pieces, about the size of a cork and then pressed with a fork to form ridges. It’s then dunked into a sauce of your choice, commonly tomato or cream takes charge. Don’t need to travel all the way to Italy, using your palate as passport, these renowned restaurants in Penang transport you to Italy with each mouthful.

    Tomato and cream sauce usually tops the listing to cuddle Gnocchi in a bowl, yet The Eighty Eight Restaurant sets them apart with pesto sauce. Plump and poofy potato morsels are generously ladled with wild mushroom, basil pesto and a sprinkle of pine nuts. The sauce is stellar of the dish, earthy, rich and complements the soft gnocchi. Enjoy delving into the green ocean of goodness in a comfort and charming ambiance.
