Season For Treats @ DCOVA Cafe

Christmas is the season that we will gather with friends or family and celebrate it in some nice cafe and restaurant with good food!
In this jolly season, DCOVA Cafe has launched their new menu featuring new pasta for all the pasta lovers in Penang! 

If you have visited this cafe before, you would know that DCOVA offers wide selections of Japanese inspired pasta menu and since the opening until now, it is still serving the best pasta in town.
This coming season, 3 new pastas have been added into the current menu and now offering more seafood selections on the new menu.

One of the highlights would be Spaghetti Alle Vongole, a new seafood featuring a generous amount of huge, juicy and fresh clams. You can tell from the picture that the clams have flooded the plate and covered the whole spaghetti. DCOVA never fail to impress customers with their al dente pasta, it is always the right texture.
This pasta features the freshness seafood with a hint of chinese wine in it. The pasta was pretty appetizing and the clams were big and juicy, cooked to perfection. It is reasonably priced at RM27.00 with the big portion served.  

If you prefer some tomato based pasta, you could go for the Seafood Bolognese, an additional seafood pasta that carries the fresh seafood with slight sourness from the bolognese sauce. I personally pretty the other seafood pasta as I'm a person who loves the original taste of seafood rather than covering it with sauces. 

Another highlight on the new menu is their pesto based pasta, Pesta Pesto priced at RM25.90 for a big plate of pasta filled with back bacon and mushroom. DCOVA created their unique blend of pesto sauce made from scratch with fresh basil leaves. The creamy pesto is rather appetizing and feels pretty refreshing at the same time. I like how it was cooked and served with the deep fried garlic that was crispy and extremely fragrant, and most importantly great to go with the pasta. 

Other than the new menu, the signature pastas from the previous menu such as the Chicken Teriyaki Pasta, Squid Ink Pasta and many more are still available on the menu. Those are all my favourites and they are still my favourite until today, I'm always having dilemma issues whenever I visit this cafe looking at the menu and not sure which to order cause all of them are good and impressive.

The best seller, Carbonara.

Coffee addicts must order their Aussie Strong Latte, the only drink I always order in this cafe. It is their best seller here and the coffee is stronger than the normal latte, my kind of bitter coffee with strong body. 

Together with their new menu, DCOVA also came out with a few new beverages to compliment the all new pastas. In picture below is the newly introduced Blue Rhapsody made of orange peel, lemonade, yoghurt, fresh milk, vanilla ice cream, fresh lemon juice. A very appetizing ice blended drink.

Also there are a few new caffeinated and non-caffeinated drinks. There are always something for somebody.

Something must not miss, the Affogato!
All time favourite and their best seller!

To commemorate this festive season, DCOVA is giving away their homemade fruit cakes for FREE with a minimum of RM150 spending on the total bill!
We have tried their fruit cake and I kinda like the strong taste of alcohol in this cake. Perfect to celebrate this Christmas, the joyous season!

Grilled Boston Lobster @ Crab & Lobster, Straits Quay

Seafood lovers has got a new place to savour a freshly grilled Boston lobsters that flew in all the way from America to Penang!
Since the opening of Crab & Lobster in Penang last year, the restaurant attracted a lot of visitors to enjoy their seafood feast at the outlet.

Crab & Lobster is located at the ground floor of Straits Quay. If you are at the entrance of mall, you just have to look for Dome and head all the way to the end of the row. The restaurant serves fresh and live seafood, all the dishes will be cooked upon customers' orders. Crab & Lobster carries Alaska King Crab from Alaska, Boston lobsters, from America, Brown Crab from England, live oysters from all around the globe and also some local seafood like shrimps, clams and mud crabs.  

In conjunction with their 1st anniversary, Crab & Lobster has recently launched their new menu featuring the Grilled Boston Lobster that will be grilled upon order! All the seafood will be served fresh and juicy! 

The restaurant can accommodate big groups, so even if you have like company dinner or gathering with friends or family, Crab & Lobster would be a great choice for that.
Outdoor seatings are also available, would be great if you want to enjoy some sea view at this great place.

The restaurant even provided you with a guide on how to savour Lobster in the elegant way!
This is totally perfect for a noobie like me!

Mr.Brown Crab! You must have been through a lot of challenges flying all the way from England!

All the juicy and delicious looking Boston lobsters, very lively and fierceful!

Alaska King Crab, looking very creepy and aggressive!

Crab & Lobster also carries more than 100 types of beverages in the restaurant. There includes imported wines, beers, juices, soft drinks and many more. 

There are also promotions from time to time, some are selling at 50%, some are with the "Buy 2 FREE 1" or "Buy 3 FREE 1" promotions depending on the availability.

 Freshly grilled Boston lobster anyone?
Introducing the new item on the menu, Triple Grilled Lobster by Crab & Lobster!

Every set of Triple Grilled Lobster is served cajun fries and mixed salad, and of course there is a fresh and live whole Boston lobster. The Triple Grilled Lobster adapted to the 3 secretive grilling methods to get this lobster done.
While maintaining the moisture and juiciness of the lobster meat, they can still make the lobster done perfectly with their triple grill method.

The Triple Grilled Lobster comes with a selection of Signature Mushroom Sauce or Black Pepper Sauce.
While the signature mushroom sauce was quite creamy and filled with a generous portion of mixed mushrooms in the sauce, which is perfect especially if you are a family with kids. 
On the other hand, I believe Penangites would prefer something exotic and would go for their Black Pepper Sauce that was pretty good and a little bit hot to stir up your taste bud. I can taste something different in their Black Pepper Sauce which got me very appetizing and enjoyed it very much with the lobster and also the fries.

So, what would be your choice?
The rich and creamy Signature Mushroom Sauce? Or the exotic spicy and appetizing Black Pepper Sauce?

Other than the new items on the menu, the old menu is still available where Crab & Lobster will serve their fried seafood combo 'On The Table' or 'In The Pot'!
The combos are Live Alaskan King Crab Leg Combo, Live Lobster Feast, Live Crab Feast, Live Brown Crab and Shrimp Bag!

All the seafood combos are served with a complimentary tray of Deep Fried Mantou and Cajun Fries! How good is that?!
There are 5 types of sauces available for the seafood combo which are Crab & Lobster Signature Sauce, Black Pepper Sauce, Chili Crab Sauce, Garlic Butter Sauce and Dry Curry Sauce!
The highly recommended sauces would be the Crab & Lobster Signature Sauce and Chili Crab Sauce.

 Fresh oysters are also one of the highlight in Crab & Lobster!
They have all type sof oysters that freshly flew in from all around the globe including France, Ireland and many more!

If you are looking for a delicious and fresh seafood feast, Crab & Lobster is definitely the right place to meet that requirement! And now with their new menu lauched, you have more options to go for!
