Mario Ristorante @ Batu Ferringhi, Penang

When hubby's birthday few months ago, we thought of giving hubby a "surprise". My gal and I booked a hotel around Batu Ferringhi for a night. We only let hubby know about it in the last minute. After all the packing was done secretly. ^-^
I did not booked any restaurant for dinner since not sure what hubby would like to have. During dinner time, hubby decided that he would like to have some Italian Cuisines and thought of trying out

Mario Ristorante Interior
We were politely brought by the waitress to a table. After we sat down, we were given the menu. After browse through the menu, we ordered some juices for our beverage as the weather was so "Hot". Then we have sometime by ourselves to discuss what to have for dinner. ^-^
Kid's Spaghetti Tomato Sauce ~ RM11.50
My gal was having the kid's meal. As she loves spaghetti a lots since small. She enjoyed her plate of spaghetti. She finished it in no time. ^-^
This salads come with the main course. Salads consist of some onion, tomatoes,cucumbers, capsicum, rocket and assorted lettuce and top with balsamic vinegar.
Aglio Olio Baked Tiger Prawn ~ RM78
This is the main course. I was introduced by the waitress that there are some promotion going on that night. Which is this baked tiger prawn. Sound irresistible. Since it's under promotion, I just give it a try. But heard one of the fellow blogger that she had the same dish a week before me was charged very higher price. Since the tiger prawn is charged according to the seasonal rate. ^-^
Ok back to the aglio olio. When this plate of aglio olio baked tiger prawn sit in front of me, I was worried when I looked at the textures of the spaghetti. As I don't like soft spaghetti. But lucky it looks soft but taste vice are ok. But I found that too salty for my liking. I let hubby tried mine and he also found it a bit too salty. As for the tiger prawn, it tastes nice.
Linguine Con Vongole ~ RM29
This is hubby order. The linguine is a bit softer but still taste ok for us. The only drawback was too salty for our liking. The clams were sweet and tasty.
Pizza Hawaiian ~ RM31
We also decide to order their home style pizza for a try. We love thin crust pizza. So we ordered Pizza Hawaiian for a try since my gal loves pineapple. Their thin crust pizza is nice. We enjoyed it very much.

RM78?! Rather pricey, even with tiger prawns. But then again, as long as they're fresh and succulent enough, everything's good..
Moreover, can't go to hawker stalls for a bday celebration.
