Il Bacaro Shrimps & Clams

Post by Chiefeater VK

Il Bacaro on Campbell Street in Penang is a charming Italian eatery that brings a slice of Italy to the heart of Georgetown. I had spotted it during my last trip to Penang but could not get a table. This time I made a reservation prior to my arrival in Penang.

For dinner, we ordered a 12-inch Salame e Peperoni pizza and a Spadellata di Gamberi e Vongole alla Diavola. While the pizza was enjoyable, it didn't quite blow me away. The pizza had a good balance of salami and peppers, offering a decent combination of flavours.

The Spadellata di Gamberi e Vongole alla Diavola, or Shrimps & Clams Cooked in Garlic & Chilli however was the gem. This seafood dish was a true delight, offering a burst of fresh and delectable flavours. The shrimps and clams were fresh and cooked to perfection, succulent and tender, while the garlic and chili added a gentle yet delightful dimension to each bite. It was a harmonious symphony of taste, and I found myself savouring every mouthful. The bread that came with the dish is a great for soaking every last bit of gravy in the bowl.

Il Bacaro

The restaurant exudes an authentic Italian charm, making it an ideal spot for a relaxing and enjoyable dining experience. The attentive and friendly staff further enhanced the experience, ensuring that every guest felt well taken care of.

FYI, Il Bacaro was a Michelin selected restaurant in the inaugural list by the guide for 2023.
