Claudine, San Francisco CA

My first fregola soup! I liked the texture of the pasta and the individual ingredients were great, but I don’t think I was a fan of the broth. It was kinda bland and it was barely warm. I came on a cold and rainy day and really wanted something hot to eat, but this wasn’t it! There was also too much cheese in the soup and it was awkward eating around the huge melted blob of it in the middle of the bowl. There was a sourness to the broth that I wasn’t a fan of either.

Bread and butter. $2
I think it’s tacky when restaurants charge for bread and butter. Lame.
