Restaurants and food in Rome

I never liked Italian food before I went to Italy. I wasn’t really a pizza fan, Parma ham was too salty for me, and mozzarella was well, something that doesn’t have much taste at all. Of course it’s only true if you buy all of the above in the nearest Tesco.

Going to Rome kinda changed my views on the Italian food completely. I had the most awesome pizza ever, very simple and thin and crispy. And mozzarella with prosciutto is just the right thing to eat when it’s about 30 degrees outside. And gnocchi with different sauces. I even brought some home and cooked it with the four cheese sauce – was ok-ish, but I miss the real Italian ones…

Restaurants in Rome are everywhere, streets in the city center are not very wide in general, but there is always a row of small cafe tables at least on one side. I really like it there, especially in the evening when candles and lanterns are lightened up, there are flower pots everywhere and people are just sitting and talking and having a nice meal – it’s a great way to spend the evening.

    I dunno – parma ham…. screw that crap. The whole world seems to be wetting their pants about the stuff but seriously… it’s this weird kind of sweaty, fatty meat. Give me some good salami or chorizo any day.

      Hmm, dunno, I only started to appreciate it in Italy, when it’s VERY hot outside, some cold mozzarella and parma ham tastes really good.
