An All-Time Favorite

Yes, my last couple of posts have been about food.  That might have given you an inkling of how much I love food.  I'm usually game to try new places, new food.  This below, though, is  not really new.  We've been to this restaurant over the years and the food is at the top of my family's list of our favorite eats. It's nothing complicated. It's just pasta and mushroom soup, fares which you can get at any respectable Italian restaurant.  But... (finger raised), it's not just any pasta, not just any mushroom soup.  

The pasta is spaghetti with 24-month old parmesan cheese and truffle paste (tossed in a huge wheel of parmesan and cooked/infused with Bacardi rum).

 The soup is wild mushroom soup with generous truffle shavings.

That's truffle heaven!

I am aware of at least two other restaurants that offer the same (they're cheaper, too), but they just don't taste as good as what we get at Palco Ristorante.  They don't scrimp on the good stuff at Palco's. It's so good that every time we go there, all four of us always order the same thing: the pasta and the mushroom soup. Boring, I know, but we all love it so much that we don't want to miss out on them and order other things instead.  What's more is that every single time the yumminess and the satisfaction level is the lick-your-plate-clean kind. A true indulgence.

What's a dish that you've tried that would be at the top of your list of all-time favorite dishes?

The pasta seems sooooo creamy!

We rarely eat out, but when I do, I'm boring too because I usually like the same thing if it's a favorite, which sounds like this delicious dish is. We're more for ordering in and we definitely have some favorites.

Delicious! Bacardi in the pasta sauce is a new experience.

By the way: I had in Young years forte years ago a Green nail polish. And now again... it’s a wonderful feeling 🙋🏻‍♀️

We had some great pasta in Italy in May. I've never tried truffles though. But you can keep the mushroom soup :)

You had me at Bacardi … one of my go-to meals when out at a restaurant is a good risotto. Joining you for the first time from WATW.
