Steak nachos – Escena Lounge & Grill

Steak nachos - Escena Lounge & Grill
Tortilla chips, 3 cheese blend, pico de gallo, sour cream, guacamole. $12
Escena Lounge & Grill, Palm Springs CA

Meh… This was just REALLY dry! The steak was dry, the chips were dry, the pico was dry. It’s like this thing sat under the salamander for 15 minutes before getting topped for serving. Geez!

Rabbit cacciatora – Tordomatto

Rabbit cacciatora - Tordomatto
“Tradition” tasting menu €65
Tordomatto, Rome ITALY

Omg, the dishes just kept getting better and better. This rabbit cacciatora was simply divine. The rabbit meat was so juicy and succulent and the sauce was to die for. These are the times when I love eating!

Amuse bouche - Tordomatto
Amuse bouche. I didn’t much care for the “olive” bite in the background.

Lasagna – Napoletano’s Pantheon

Lasagna - Napoletano's Pantheon
Baked lasagne with minced beef, mozzarella, tomato sauce, parmesan cheese. €11
Napoletano’s Pantheon, Rome ITALY

Just like mama used to make! Ok, my mom never made me lasagna growing up, but if she did I would hope that it tasted like this one! This tasted great – it was hot, gooey from the cheese and the meat sauce was delicious. A total winner!

Napoli pizza – Magnolia

Napoli pizza - Magnolia
Tomato, mozzarella, anchovies. Whole €10
Magnolia, Rome ITALY

I know that it looks like there isn’t much going on with this pizza, but it sure was tasty! I’m a big fan of anchovies (unlike a lot of people I know), but I loved this pizza. And did I mention that the service was great at this restaurant?! Unlike many of the tourist traps in Campo dei Fiori, I would actually come back to Magnolia and truly enjoy myself.
