Patio De Tapas @ Penang Weld Quay

A place where you can find tapas is considered very rare in Penang.
Not many Penangites know how to appreciate a Spanish tapas kind of food but the Patio De Tapas did introduce us to varieties of Tapas and now you can happily enjoy all sorts of Spanish dishes in this enjoyable bar.

Patio De Tapas is not only a bar, but it is also a restaurant that you get to dine and enjoy the ambience with your family or loved one. The place is rather cozy could be a perfect place for gathering, only it may be a bit warm sometimes depending on the weather. It is located right opposite the famous Chew Jetty along Weld Quay and the streeet gets quite busy day and night. You don't have to worry about parking cause customers of Patio will get free parking just a stone throw away from the restaurant.

It has outdoor and indoor sections where you can choose to sit by the bar or enjoy the big yard beside the bar. Whichever one is also quite comfortable and they even have live bands playing during the weekends.

Salmon rebozado aderezado con pure de manzana
The crispy beer battered salmon with apple puree is priced at RM24. It was fried to perfection and went well with the apple puree that made me thought it was our local kaya. The nice crunch from the beer battered fish gives you a good start to tapas and I think I would prefer more of the refreshing puree to go with the fish, just can't get enough. 

Arroz paella de mariscos con gambas
A eafood paella rice with jumbo prawns, claims and squid freshly baked from the over was presented to us hot from the oven. This big portion of paella is priced at RM58 and it is definitely a portion for sharing.

I would say that the seafood used in this dish were big and fresh. From the picture itself you can tell that this dish is quite appetizing. I really love how well Spanish could play with their seafood and created so many different types of dishes with only seafood and sauces. Remember not to squeeze too much of lemon into your rice as it will make the whole dish too sour to taste. It was such a great flavours blended together in this dish, definitely must order this for sharing!

Costillas de cerdo
A big plate of charbroiled tangy pork ribs were presented to us and we were really shocked to see this big portion priced at only RM58. The pork ribs were well seasoned, you can taste the juicy and tender meats that is filled with flavours in it. Adding chilli powder is a great move to suit our local's taste too.

Marisco pasta de tinta de calamar
Tinta negro seafood black pasta is one of the signature dishes in Patio De Tapas. This plate of pasta that served with generous amount of seafood is priced at RM32 for a plate. I like how spicy it was and this dish would be perfect for the locals, this is unlike other squid ink pasta you will get from other restaurants. The only thing I would prefer is the portion for the pasta to be bigger. 

Open tortilla horneada con champiñones, tocino y queso mozzarella.
Open baked tortilla with mushroom, bacon & mozarella cheese was one of the highlights of the night. We really enjoy this tortilla pizza to the max. The pizza is quite huge and filled with generous amount of meats and cheeses. It was worth for RM32 for a big pizza like this.

Other than good food, Patio De Tapas is also specialized in making cocktails, mocktails and many more refreshing beverages. We did enjoyed some of the specially crafted cocktails by the in-house bartenders. They can also create something out of the menu according to your requirements. Do hit them up and see what they can offer!

Absinthe cocktail anyone?
