Mare Blu

This article is part of my 2016 Langkawi trip.

Perdana Quay at a marina located within a short drive from Oriental Village. This Mediterranean-style commercial area at Pantai Kok overlooks a dozen yachts docked at the quay. Businesses at Perdana Quay are primarily restaurants, bars and boutique shops.
Serving the upscale market, several of these eateries provide al fresco dining on the boardwalk. Mare Blu Kafé is one such restaurant here. As business is slow during lunchtime, this Italian restaurant offers set meals that include pasta, pizza or grilled meat. My choice for lunch is the Pasta Set for a fair price of RM20.00.
There are two choices for appetizers: Garlic Bread and Tomato Bruschetta. I opted for the latter. Bruschetta consists of several slices of bread topped with diced tomatoes.
There are 4 choices for the main dish. Each option involves a different type of pasta with a corresponding type of sauce. I selected Linguine Clams In Olive Oil as it sounds the most appealing. This aglio olio-style dish enjoys strong flavors of garlic and chili peppers. However, I prefer the pasta dish to contain more olive oil as it is quite dry.
The set meal also includes a single scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drink - either carbonated drink or fruit juice. I picked mango juice for lunch today. Overall the food at Mare Blu is acceptable in terms of palatability. However, I think the main appeal is the scenic ambience which the restaurant provides.
