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!
With mussels, clams, and shrimp. €17
Napoletano’s Pantheon, Rome ITALY
This risotto was really tasty! I thought it was going to be a throw-away dish, but they packed it with plenty of nicely cooked seafood. I would order this again in a heartbeat! Mmm…
Silician pistachio & lavendar and white peach gelato.
Gelateria del Teatro, Rome ITALY
Yum, this gelato was really good! I wish I could walk around Rome just trying out all the little gelato shops and all their different flavors. I would become quite obese, but at least I’d be happy!
Rock shrimp, salted cabbage, chives, egg, red XO. $19
Mister Jiu’s, San Francisco CA
This seafood fried rice was legit! The rice was still tender, and all the ingredients were of really nice quality. Even the shrimp were juicy and not over-cooked as in most fried rice dishes. Yummy!
“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. I didn’t much care for the “olive” bite in the background.
Artichoke cream bruschetta. €4
La Biga, Rome ITALY
Um, this was ok. I don’t think I liked the texture very much. It was too wet and almost slimy. I liked the flavor of it though and the toasted bread stood up well to the artichoke spread.
Lettuce with avocado-ranch dressing, tomato-chile tortilla bowl, black beans, jack cheese, jalapenos, sour cream, salsa and diced chicken. $12.95
Harvey’s, San Francisco CA
This is more like a chicken taco salad bowl than a chicken tostada, but I’m not really going to argue with what Harvey’s wants to call it. It was marginal.
