On the bustling Burma Road in Penang, El Faro is the latest addition to a handful of genuine tapas joints around town. Small plates of tapas, prepared by executive chef Jack Yeap, come with rich offerings of pungent cheeses, olive oils, premium sardine, anchovies and tuna.

Tapas, or small plates of snacks, which originated from Spain, are best enjoyed under the covered patio in front of this restaurant. Alternatively, there’s also an indoor air-conditioned dining area. Try the Boquerones – a perfect marriage of refreshing sweet watermelon, salty preserved Spanish white anchovies with mint, sea salt and extra virgin olive oil.

Barone Ricasoli is available in selected Penang restaurants’ wine list!

A group of us had an enjoyable time sampling and learning about Barone Ricasoli wines at two different restaurants, Suffolk House and That Little Wine Bar. Both the chefs have prepared creations to match with the Italian wine which is distributed by Asiaeuro.

Below are several wines that are worth trying:
Brolio Chianti Classico 2009
Rocca Guicciarda Chianti Classico Reserva 2008
Casalferro IGT Toscana 2008
Castello Di Brolio Vin Santo 2004
