Once you’ve bolted down the ocean goodness, stroll around the heritage-preserved streets to free up some tummy space and get back for more. Their local delights and tandoori meats are worth sinking in too.

    Located in Campbell House, IL Bacaro is widely cherished for its authentic Italian cuisine. And keeps the crowd coming back is the consistency of the dishes, as fresh and premium ingredients are emphasised in the kitchen and much of the sauces and pastas are made from scratch. Apart from the variation of sauces and toppings, one can also relish different types of pastas that come in different shapes and sizes. If you’re a seafood buff, we highly recommended the seafood pasta as they are never skimp on the ingredients. Also, the ambience is kept the same high level as the food, thus lingering around longer with a glass of wine is certainly on the cards.

    A good spot for a romantic date

    Penang cafes definitely are unique with their ideal balance of heritage preservation and modernized refurbishment. iDCOVA is a perfect example with the outside looking as if it was built in London or France. Dish-wise do look out for the signature spicy aglio olio. It may look simple but don't be fooled. The spiciness tend to build up slowly and will have you appreciating the taste of the hot Bangladeshi Bird's Eye Chili!
