What to eat in Rome

 photo P5200317.jpg

I was tasked to find places to eat at but I really suck at it and also, we couldn't find a couple of restaurants that I planned to go to ): Hence, we don't have many awesome stuff in this post to share with you but still, here are a few share-worthy things!


1) Da Baffetto

Possibly one of the most popular restaurants in Rome!
We got there when the queue wasn't that long and queued for about 30 minutes

The bread in Rome is extremely different. It's a little springy, tastes synthetic and doesn't carry a fragrance.

The queue got madder and madder haha

We got the Pizza Baffetto! We were guessing that this should be their signature. Turned out that we didn't really like it because there was quite alot of moist vegetables that didn't really suit our taste. We should have stuck with our initial choice of a meat pizza!

Via del Governo Vecchio, 114, 00186 Rome, Italy 


2) Popsicles and Icecream

We got this from a shop near Piazza Navona. They have super alot of flavours and I didn't know which to choose! The fruity ones seem to be especially popular. But this is really good too! I chose the almond one thinking that the icecream is coated with chocolate and almonds, but the icecream was actually almond flavoured too!


3) Il Fornaio

A super popular bakery!

They have tarts, pies, cookies, bread, etc

The items are sold by weight, 1 kg for 20 euros. The shop owner was very nice and he let us try the chocolate cheese tart that's apparently one of their best sellers.

Apple Tart
This was my favourite of the lot! The apple slices were really sweet!

Chocolate chip cookies
The cookies were very fat and fragrant and were a little softer than our usual cookies

Chocolate cheese tart that's typical of Rome.
Gotta give this creamy and light cheese tart a try!

Lemon Tart
The texture of the curd was somewhat like that of a hardened egg yolk. The tart base outshone the curd

4) Alle Fratte Di Trastevere

Cappuccino

Iced Cappuccino
They don't serve iced coffee so they just added ice to a cup of warm cappuccino

Ravioli
I felt that the portion of the filling inside the ravioli was a little too much and strong. After awhile, I got quite sick of the filling but I have to say that the first few mouthfuls were delicious

Salad

Spaghetti Del Scoglio
A drier version of our usual marinara, with perfectly cooked pasta and a generous portion of seafood!

The friendly boss of the restaurant came up to us and said "you know the shells are not edible right?" Hahaha

Via delle fratte di Trastevere, 49 00100 Roma, 00153 Rome, Italy (Trastevere)


5) Blue Ice

Blue Ice is a gelato chain and it's basically everywhere. I always have my doubts about chain restaurants, for some reason. So I didn't wanna try it but X went ahead and got himself two scoops

The tiramisu was yummy!


6) Carbonara

It's no mean feat to find Italian food in Rome, duh haha. Pizza and pasta can be found everywhere but make sure you try the carbonara! It's super different from what we have in Singapore. It's almost dry, and alot less creamy. Pretty interesting! You can of course, get carbonara in the rest of the Italian cities too!


We heard that Roma cooking is fantastic but we didn't have a chance to try authentic Roma cuisine. If you have, do share your experience with us!

Love, K
