WHEN IN ROME… 5 Days of Roman Food

I’ve just returned from five days in Rome. I walked about 15 kilometres each day, working up a healthy appetite. Here are some of the ways I satisfied my hunger ? Upvote your favourite dish!

#1 Grigliata Mista di Pesce

Mixed Grill of Seafood: prawns, tuna steak, and squid. What an earthy, smoky squid!

#2 Calamari Fritti

Simple but delicious: Squid rings and tentacles, dipped in a light batter and deep-fried. With a squeeze of lemon juice - perfect!

#3 Cioccolata Calda

Is it a drink? Is it a dessert? Italian hot chocolate is literally so thick you can float a spoon on it! Do you eat it with a spoon or slurp it straight from the cup into your mouth? I usually start off taking it by the spoonful then greedily lose patience 😀

#4 Fancy Focaccia

This was my last lunch in Rome, yesterday afternoon in Trastevere before visiting the Botanic Gardens. What you see here is pork neck pickled in white wine, soft white cheese, and steamed dandelion greens, all served on hot crusty focaccia.

  1. Please lend me some money and I am off to Rome. WOW now, I am so hungry. All that wonderful food especially the seafood which I cannot get here since it is expensive and not of that good quality. Thank you for sharing and awesome photos.
