Roscioli

Awww.. I haven't been updating as I've been away to a couple of places! Italy would be the main highlights for now! Ciao Roma! I am BACK in Rome again for the third time in a year!!! Feels like I've been here forever - yet lovin' it! Will never get tired of the land of good food!

 Kim loves the best of the best when it comes to food... So she ordered a platter or Jamón ibérico hand-cut ham to share! It was definitely worth the price - very thinly sliced and it totally melts in the mouth! Normally I don't like food with visible obvious fats but.. Hands down for this one! It's a MUST to eat with that layer of white thingy! It may look red and raw from pictures, oh well, it does look red too in real but don't judge the looks of it, it's one super good snack! 

As for the ricotta cheese, I believe they gave it to us as complimentary - I don't recall ordering it! I'm not that pro-cheese person, hence, I can't tell if it's good or not? It's a little sweet, fluffy, light and creamy - probably the only words I have for ricotta... Nevertheless, it was good.

 Spaghettone with tuna - honestly I'm getting confused with the names of pasta! There are TOO MANY varieties in Italy you can barely count it with your fingers and toes put together. Anyway it's just like normal spaghetti but very much thicker and the inner part is slightly hard, or rather chewy. It felt as though the pasta was not cooked, but it's like that. So if you don't enjoy you probably won't like it. On top of that, the tuna tasted canned ones, which I didn't really like. It has that really strong unfresh canned fish smell... Well, something different I'd say.

They were really nice - another complimentary item... Some cookie with dark chocolate dip! I was never really a fan of dark chocolate, it's just too bitter! We were so full already despite ordering just two dishes!

In conclusion, I would say this place is good for cold cuts! I like the way they decorated this restaurant too - wine bottles covering the walls. It made me felt like I wasn't going into typical chain restaurant. I would highly recommend if you're down here in Rome - for cold cuts, cheese and wine session. They have other products for sale in-store - mainly local Italian products (olive oil, balsemic vinegar, wine, etc).

No.. Actually you have to try it if you're in Rome!!!!!!! It's nearby Piazza Navona. In fact, that area is famous for food!
