Pasta is not what drawn me to Bakerzin. It is their display of desserts. But I am pretty impressed that they have some nice pasta on their menu. So, I shall share the pics of the pasta first before the desserts.
This is their seafood pasta. I didn’t order it because no one wants to share the portion (which is HUGE) with me. Moreover, the kid who loves pasta is allergic to prawns. So, I can only steal the photo from their counter. *drools*
Instead, I ordered this roast beef and pasta with pesto. The pesto is made with basils and sesame seeds. Not bad ‘cos the pesto sauce does not have those overpowering canned pesto sauce smell. I hate those! But this is probably freshly made.
Can you see the pinkish roast beef? Nice eh? Just right without overdone.
My son ordered this pink sauce penne with chicken ham. It is loaded with lots of ham and portion is also huge. The cost is only RM21, if I am not mistaken. The pink sauce is a creamy sauce with tomato and white wine.
Bakerzin is one restaurant before Paddington Pancake in QueensBay Mall. Sadly, the place is rather neglected as everyone heads to Paddington. If you give me a choice, I’d go for Bakerzin anytime. Love the attentive service, knowledgable waitresses plus the endless dessert. We had some tapas consisting of creme brulee. More about that later. You may also want to check out the escargots we had as appetiser at my other food blog.
What is worrying is I think these restaurants will not last long here in Penang. Queensbay is so empty, even on a pre-holiday night. There are sales going on yet no one throng the place. Give it another few months….
