Patio Bar De Tapas Penang - A Place for Food, Tapas and Drinks

Located along the bustling area of Weld Quay, Patio bar de tapas which is just a stone's throw away from the many Unesco World Cultural Heritage Site trails such as Clan Jetties and many more. Behind the old colonial structure facade, lies a nice hangout place that offers such cozy ambiance which is ideal for a place to sit back, relax and unwind. Of course it is only complete with the scrumptious food and drinks by Patio.

While there are quite a number of food selection made available, Patio's tapas, among the other food on the menu, are definitely worth trying and addictive at the same time. The word tapas may not be a common term to many, so if it's something new to you, the word tapas originates from Spain which means snack or appetizer.

A step pass the front door and the bar is the first thing you would spot.

A turn to the left and it brings you to the patio, the courtyard area which is pretty fascinating I must say. I suppose that was how the place got its name. The exposed brick walls, wall planters and designs by the wall,  does bring some uniqueness to the place. 

On the far end, there's an upper deck which can fit a group of people for private events. Below are the photos of the upper deck.

Now it's time to explore the items that would pamper the palates.

Salmon rebozado aderezado con pure de manzana
Crispy beer battered salmon with apple puree dressing

The first tapas item that I tried. First glance at it and it already opens the appetite. For a minute, I initially thought it was kaya on it until I read the menu to know what it actually was. If you love salmon, then this dish definitely brings something unique on overall. The crispiness of the beer batter gives you that nice crunch filled with salmon and a tangy sweet sourness from the apple puree.

Hongos salvajes con tomillo y ajo
Stir-fried garlic thyme wild mushroom 
RM 15++

I just knew that this tapas would suit my palate, chunks of mushroom stir-fried with garlic and thyme giving you such nice fragrant aroma and flavour too. Take some of it and have it on the slice, oh so good! 

Open Tortilla horneada con champinones, tocino y queso mozzarella

This is like an ultimate serving of goodness in a pan. Behold for a wonderful treat of rice, loads of clams and prawns too. It was nicely seasoned and offer such beautiful flavour, spoon upon spoon of it. So good that 1 pan of it won't be enough to satisfy the tummy.

Costillas de cerdo
Charbroiled Tangy pork ribs 
RM 58++

Well you don't get a slab of it but the pieces of it and definitely makes sharing easier. A cut into it and you could see how tender the ribs are. The ribs are charbroiled with a nice smokey yet tangy sauce with a tad of sweetness that is just smackin' good.

Marisco pasta de tinta de calamar
