Third Charm



Usually it's said that the 'third one's a charm' but last night my third visit to the Italian restaurant of Trattoria on West 4th avenue was rather disappointing....
When Yeshey and I got there, Virginie and Aaron were already waiting for us by getting comfortable with a bottle of South African white wine, which i couldn't finish even 1/3 of the glass. Wine is not my forte as you can tell~


Then, we ordered the 'Anti Pasto' appetizers we always eat which had Egg Plant, Artichoke, Kobe Beef Balls, Mashed Potatoes, Patty, Salad, Mozzarella Stromboli, Crispy Calamari, Tiger Prawns and a few more i didn't know names to...

Then when the main course came, I ordered Spaghetti Fanciulla which had chicken, chick peas, eggplant peperoncino, garlic, olive oil. The waitress actually recommended it so therefore considering her knowledge of the food there i tried it. It turned out to be one of the most bland spaghetti's I've had this entire year not including the over cooked one i ate at Cafe Klein in Bhutan which was worse~ :( barely had 3 spoon fulls before i decided i'd indulge in dessert as they have great choice.

Not really a huge fan of fried banana's, i decided to try the classic Tiramisu... I was in a 'sweet' mood so was really looking forward to a great yummy dessert. Finally, when it came on my first bite itself i was disappointed. Either they took it out of the fridge before it was completed or they kept it out a bit longer than they normally should which made it watery and soggy...

So over all apart from the satisfactory food, the bill was a high $50 each and it was all worth it because of the awesome company of Virgine, Yeshey and Aaron.
