This cioppino was good, but I was honestly surprised that it wasn’t better! I expected it to be AMAZING for almost thirty bucks. The ingredients were nice but I wasn’t blown away by the broth. It lack the all the flavor and depth that I was looking for. The mussels were also a little overdone.

Mmm, these were SO good! I loved the airy, eggy interior especially with the subtle strawberry butter spread all over. I thought that the exterior was a little overdone and almost burnt tasting, but maybe it was just the one I got. I would have requested a second but I didn’t want to seem like a pig, lol!
