Veal shank served with sweet and sour silver-skin onions. €20
Trattoria Sora Lella, Rome ITALY
Oh lordy, this was delicious! The veal was so tender and I liked that it wasn’t in a regular tomato or red wine sauce. This sauce was so flavorful and really complemented the veal. NOMS!
Bleu cheese dipping sauce. $10
Escena Lounge & Grill, Palm Springs CA
These were pretty good! I liked the saucy glaze, and bleu cheese is always preferable over ranch for me! Hehe!
Rum-soaked dessert. €6.50
Napoletano’s Pantheon, Rome ITALY
This was definitely rum-y, but I really liked it! The rum flavor wasn’t too over-powering, and I liked the texture of the pastry and the cream wasn’t too heavy.
The Bird, San Francisco CA
I love curly fries, and these were pretty good. I wonder if they make their own or if these come frozen. Either way, they were perfectly fried and not too greasy.
Dried herbs. “Tradition” tasting menu €65
Tordomatto, Rome ITALY
There was just a single swirl of this spaghetti on the plate, but it was a satisfying one! The noodles were more al dente that I’m used to but it worked to hold up to the intense flavor of the sauce and the fine dried herbs on top. It was spaghetti like I’ve never tasted before!
Silverware place setting.
Homemade tagliatelle pasta in a bolognese sauce. €12
La Biga, Rome ITALY
This tasted fine, but that yellow light made all the food look sickly! But I guess why look at your food, when you can look out and enjoy the amazing view of the Colosseum in front of you!
Served with ranch dressing, carrots and celery. 6 pieces $8.95
Harvey’s, San Francisco CA
I suppose anything covered in buffalo wing sauce can’t be that bad. These were still on the dry side though, but I didn’t expect much at Harvey’s…
