Markus is a modern Italian restaurant which famous with their innovative and creative Italian cuisine. Although they are selling modern Italian food, they still preserve the unforgettable classic taste of Italian food. Markus is a very elegant yet comfortable restaurant located in Penang and their staff is very friendly and helpful. First, they served Focaccia Bread with Balsamic Olive Oil which is freshly baked daily. The bread is crispy in the outside and fluffy in the inside. The combination of olive and balsamic vinegar is the bomb.

For appetizer, we had ordered il Polpo which is an octopus dish. Chef use lower temperature and longer time to slowly cook the marinated overnight grilled octopus in order to preserve the taste of it. It is served with some crispy risotto, tomato-on-vined and fresh vegetables. The flavor of this dish is very rich and taste delicious. Zuppa Di Funghi Tartufata is made from 3 different mushroom which is Fresh Portobello, Shitake and Button Mushroom. Chef also adds some thyme in it to bring out the taste. Having a spoonful of the soup is like a having a mouth full of different mushroom. At the end you also can taste some mild alcohol taste which makes it extra special.

Our main dish is Linguine Al Granchio which is made from linguine, crab meat and vodka pink sauce to elevate the taste. The freshness of crab meat makes the sauce taste very good and is definitely a must try.  Salti In Bocca Alla Romana is our favorite dish of the night. The pork loin is marinated with sage and is perfectly cooked. Then it is covered with thick mushroom sauce. For dessert, we had ordered tiramisu with Amaretto. Overall we had a very good experience in Markus. The only complaint is the portion of food is really small, so you guys can order more and try different dishes. They are also kind enough to serve us a piece of cake as complimentary since we are celebrating our friend’s birthday that night. Thank you.
