Barbarossa

This lunch stop in Capri was good. The place was touristy? How do I know, you ask? My yardstick for measurement was the price of wine

Khaophums Fine Thai Restaurant

On this July 4th long weekend, on our trip from Jersey City to Portsmouth, this was our first meal stop, not counting the ice cream we had at a McDonald’s in a service area enroute. The food was OK. The service was OK.  We ordered the ...

Da Gemma

Would you step into a place that’s renowned for its seafood if you’re a vegetarian? I did! I say it was because of a bit of lack of time that I didn’t get to research my restaurants as much as I would’ve wanted to. This place ...

Pizzarium Bonci

So even if we reached here at 2:30 or so, that was fine.  Having to walk thirty-ish minutes from the St. Peter’s Basilica was fine.  We had to eat this pizza. It was more like a well risen focaccia bread, with a variety of toppings.  From ...

Rosati

So we were having a lazy day in Rome. You’ll know as you read these posts about my meals in Rome on this day. After mentioning in the last post about stopping for a second lunch, we walked to Piazza del Popolo, did some gazing around and then ...

Zenon Taverna

Funny or not? Last night, the hubster went for drinks. And he volunteered to be the driver. I’d told him that we’d go out for lunch next day. So come today, he’s shaking his head that he has to drive and complaining to me that I ...

Southern Black-eyed Pea Salad (or Salsa)

The South has a tradition that goes back to the Civil War and says black-eyed peas bring good luck.  Specifically, they bring good luck if they’re eaten on New Year’s Day.  Now I realize I’m… Continue reading → The ...

Di Rienza

So we were tired and didn’t particularly have an agenda for the day, so we ended up sleeping late. And starting very late. And then walking around the Pantheon to have lunch at Armanda. But they said they were booked. And it was 12:30ish. So ...

L’Amici

A special lunch celebrating a colleague’s birthday and anniversary at work.  It was a good place, a very friendly server and very good food. Thin crust wood-oven fired pizza.  We tried the truffle and mushroom pizza.  The crust ...

Angelino Ai Fiori

We’re now on day 4 and a proper meal hasn’t been had since morning. We’ve gone to the colosseum and the baby has slept. So we think we’d be able to do the Roman Forum too, while he’s asleep and then grab a bite. But ...

Ristorante Belforte

I believe I must’ve bookmarked this place for the views.  I didn’t recollect.  All of Vernazza, at least by the waters, looked touristy.  So I decided to try this place.  Even if it meant just whiling time, waiting for restaurant to ...

Schwäbische Käsespätzle (German Macaroni and Cheese)

Where I’m from in Stuttgart, Germany this dish is a classic – a quintessential Swabian comfort food dish.  Homemade Spätzle are layered with gobs of shredded Emmentaler and geröstete Zwiebeln (caramelized onions) and then ...

Nessun Dorma

I’d looked this place up before going.  And while sitting there wasn’t particularly necessary to get great views, we stopped anyway as we were hungry. The place is more of a drink place, not particularly an eat place.  Especially not ...

Cocopazzo

So the husband was incessantly complaining about how this was going to be a tiring day and he was least interested in anything and this was only the second day in Italy. We got lost – read separated from each other around the Duomo. So I said ...

El Brellin

We couldn’t manage tickets to the Last Supper in Milan, they sell out quite ahead of time. But our first supper in Italy was in Milan, at El Brellin, in the Navigli District. I must say, the pictures that I’d browsed online did not ...
