This will be another short post. I want to share what my stomach has eaten recently that was mighty delicious: the fluffy bites of lamb ravioli. 

The Restaurant 

The place itself is gigantic, a building with two floors, various dining areas, and packed with servers, families, couples, and everyone else in between- for my little Asian stature, a bit overwhelming for my bistro liking. Though, it is a fantastic place to bring families and friends to hang, eat, and celebrate.

The Food

The rabas were excellent, tender and fresh on the inside, and thin breaded crumbs at the exterior. The highlight for this meal was the lamb ravioli which still lingers in my mouth as I’m describing this: tender bites into the braised lamb filling, cooked with bits of caramelized onion, mushrooms, all seated like pillows in it’s own sauce of delicious reduced meat stock, and finished off with parmesan and parsley. The gnocchi? Sounds better than the actual taste, a bit too heavy and rich for me. For outstanding gnocchi, I still love La Cucina de Michele. The bill is about $300 (60) for two generous portions of pastas, and a starter, not including drinks and tip. Next time, I’m going to sit down and just order that lamb ravioli, and maybe the seafood parrilla.:)

Pros

  • the lamb ravioli
  • the rabas
  • good service
  • familia zuccardi olive oil to go with bread
Cons
  • expensive
  • the gigantic space
  • gnocchi too heavy
  • warm bread basket please
What I’ve been doing:
* Eating a lot of medialunas: my favorites recently are the ones in Baraka, and Las Cortaderas.
* Meat lovers: Parrilla Marucha serves a mean chorizo, always perfect service, and one of the best cuts of beef. If only they had ambiance, and matambrito to go with it.

Oh my gosh. Those cordero raviolis look insanely tantalizing.
