I have been to LA Vita Gustaso in East Haddam a few times but only for drinks never for food until Friday night. We decided to have dinner here before our friend’s show. I decided to get the veal parmigiano with penne and as my cocktail I got the sour apple cosmo. The drink was pretty strong and the food was pretty good. My only complaint was that it was a bit too salty for me overall it was really good. Our waitress was nice and prompt good thing too because compare to the reviews on yelp it sounded like it would of been a long wait for food.
Had a great time Saturday night for dinner at East-West Grill in West Hartford. Now normally, I get the drunken noodles from Thai places however this time I decided to venture out. I got the pad prick with chicken and it was stir fry with veggies and really spicy sauce. If you don’t like spice stay away from this dish as it had 3 chilli icons on the menu. For me it was just right, my only complaint was i wish they added onions to it. Overall, a good healthy meal.
Exciting day Friday as we finally got a food truck in our work area. The truck was called Cheesy Street Grill and it specializes in gourmet grill cheese sandwiches. I ordered the taco grill cheese and some tomato bisque to dunk on. It was pretty good a little too greasy and heavy but once in awhile it can be a treat. They used seasoned ground turkey, cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. When I received the sandwich it was pretty heavy in weight and presented nicely. It was very messy to eat and it really did taste like a taco. I will be visiting it again.
Decided to go Greek for Friday’s night dinner. We ate at Cavos on the Berlin turnpike. Their special was a three course meal for 20 dollars, who can say no? It came with fresh garlic bread, soup or salad, entree, and dessert. I went with the soup and got the lemon chicken orzo, my entree was this very tender lamb shank with orzo, and for dessert was this vanilla custard in phyllo dough. Everything was so good!!!
Finally tried real Indian Food for the first time. We went to Bollywood Grill in Glastonbury CT. I also had my first mango lassi which was very good. We all had the lunch buffet and I was able to try a bunch of different things like goat curry, garlicky naan, chicken tikka and a whole lot of other stuff I don’t remember the name for.
Sunday in Boston was fill with tons of food. Lunch at Pho So 1 Boston in Dorchester, I had the bun Bo hue with Thai ice tea and it was delicious! The bun Bo hue was spicy and filling. For Dinner we has hot pot at Van Shabu Bar, the perfect place for a cold night except it was really humid that day but was still great to eat. We had the chicken and spicy kimichi broth with a ton of veggies and meat. I absolutely love hot pot and I was glad to enjoy with friends instead of family.
Went to Boston to visit my best friend for the weekend. Instead of spending money on going out to eat we decided to make food from our favorite person on the food network Ina Garten! For lunch we made chicken stuffed with goat cheese and basil, collard greens, and garlicky mash potatoes. It was so freakin good. We also made so really banging banana bread with shit tons of banana. Lastly, made the best sandwich ever, especially on a drunken night, Chicken Caesar Salad sandwich. Made everything from scratch the dressing, the chicken, even had to baked the ciabatta break, so amazing.
Went to a friend’s show at Pattaconk in Chester CT. Their performance was amazing and the food wasn’t too bad. I order turkey club sandwich which was pretty tasty. They gave a me boatload of chips which was nice. However, I was not impress by out waitress who literally disappeared every time we need something. What really pushed over the edge was she added the gratuity in our bill for 3 people. Is it just me or don’t you only add gratuity if there is 6 or more people. She need she did a bad job and didn’t want low tips.
