Celery-Fiji apple slaw, mayo, pickle, bun. $8
The Bird, San Francisco CA

Mmm, I’m still loving this chicken sandwich even after The Bird has been open for a while. The fried chicken thigh is so juicy, tender, and flavorful so I’m sure I’m not going to get tired of it any time soon!

Spaghetti in puttanesca sauce – Tordomatto

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!

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.

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.
