Hi! Welcome to a new blogpost that will make your stomach growl. Today I’ll take you on a culinary journey through Rome.
DAY ONE :
People who have been following me for a while know that I like the occasional coffee from time to time. Especially in other countries, I like to try out the coffee hotspots. This one is definitely one of THE coffee hotspots in Rome. It’s called Tazza D’oro and The cappuccino was very very good! In Italy the people don’t tend to sit down to drink their coffees but they stand up next to the counter and they finish their coffees asap. Thomas drank a Granita di Caffe. It was iced coffee with whipped cream. And when I say Ice, I literally mean a kind of ice-cube with coffee taste. I forgot to take a photo of this one but you can go check it out in my vlog.
The first day we had some good old pasta in a little cute place. It looked very cosy inside and the pasta was INCREDIBLE. We started off with a combination of different kinds of bruschetta. This was very nice. I had the Lasagna afterwards and it literally blew my mind. There are still pieces of my skull on the walls I presume (haha ha .. ha ..). Thomas ate penne with some kind of cream sauce. At first it took a bit of getting used to the pasta because it was cooked very al dente, but that’s how it should be cooked. He got used to it quite quickly and the sauce was mouth-watering. We couldn’t leave our chairs before trying out their Tiramisu. WOW. You can’t find this kind of Tiramisu in Belgium, you just can’t. It was in-cre-dible.
When In Rome you need to do as the romans do, and that means eat PIZZA. We found this cute little pizza place on TripAdvisor (Pizza & Sandwich da Pasquale) and decided to go and try it out. When we arrived the owner was very charming and he gave us a taste of one of his pizza’s. We immediately decided to eat there. I can’t describe how this pizza tasted. It was the best pizza I had ever eaten, and I’ve eaten a lot of them. Definitely worth the visit.
For dinner we decided to go to this place called ‘Osteria del cavaliere’. It’s not in the city centre and we took a metro to get there, but it was seriously worth it. To begin we took meat and cheese platter. VERY GOOD. For the main course I went for a Pasta with a cream sauce and truffle (topped off with bacon) and Thomas had a Pasta with black pepper and cream sauce. Of course Thomas was jealous of my dish, because it was absolutely heavenly. I adore truffle in my pasta and this was one of the best truffle pasta’s I have ever had. Thomas also liked his pasta a lot, but my dish was definitely the winner. The tiramisu was the one that stole the show that evening. It was even better than the previous one. Just WOW.
DAY THREE (last day, already).
When we looked for the best restaurant in Rome there was this one place that popped up in the top 3. It was a sandwich bar and we just had to go and try it out. It’s called ‘Pane e Salame’ and wow this was the best freaking sandwich that ever touched my mouth. We had one with truffle cream, brie cheese and ham and we had one with cream of artichokes, smoked cheese, eggplant and salami. We both liked the one with truffle the most, but the other one was very delicious as well. Definitely worth the visit.
To finish our trip we decided to go get a good pasta. We went to ‘Saltimbocca’. To start we took one of their most famous dishes. Bread with all different kinds of tomato salsa. We also took a little cheese platter. As a main I decided to take some penne with a tomato sauce and parmesan and Thomas took a Spaghetti Pomodore e basilico. I really liked my dish and Thomas enjoyed his meal but couldn’t help being a little jealous of mine. Think he should listen to me more often, no? I liked this restaurant but I would recommend the first two more!
