I love a good pasta dish. Cream or tomato sauce, cheesy, garlicky, with seafood, bacon, or just good ol’ aglio olio… Bring it on! The legendary Sophia Loren once declared, “Everything you see, I owe to spaghetti.” If that really is the secret to her famous figure, then we’d better get started. Mangia!
Lobster bisque to start the meal. I’ve got to be careful not to be addicted to lobster bisque, the way I’m addicted to… every other food.
Spaghetti with bacon, frankfurters, and mushrooms. Felt quite cheated regarding the bacon, which looked more like a topping.
Edwin ordered the following dish, which looked like this on the menu:
And it came looking like this:
That’s a lot of sauce. Edwin remarked that it was like having a second serving of lobster bisque.
For dessert, we ordered a “Golden Crumble in Tiffany Blue” (yep it’s part of the name!), which was supposed to be baked banana slices topped with chocolate sauce and crumble. However, when I dipped my spoon in, it was all crumble. Where’s the banana?
We had to send it back, and luckily it came back a little more complete, although the ice-cream had melted slightly. Still, the combination of chocolate, banana, and ice-cream is classic. With the crumble for texture, you’ve got a winner!
Alright, time to find more places to inhale pasta!
