Venice: Cicchetti e Cibo

Pasta Nera

In Venice, I ate a lot of food. A lot of it was pastry, but the winner was probably this amazing dish of squid ink pasta typical of the region. I got this spaghetti nero di seppia from Rosticceria Gislon, a counter-service diner-style restaurant just off the Rialto Bridge. It was packed with tourists and locals alike because the food is good and the price is right. I couldn’t find any squid ink packaged in the supermarket to take home with me, because chefs here buy the squid with it’s ink sack from the daily fish markets.

Greece: Eating Greek in Tavernas

Athens: Souvlaki and Coffee
October 27th, 2015

Kostas Pita

Thanos recommended to me that I get souvlaki from local hole-in-the-wall Kostas Souvlaki. I ended up going twice, it was so great. The best part was probably the pita because they dusted it with chili powder. What a great idea. Possibly also the best part is that it cost about 2 euro.

Italy_2015 - 446

San Benedetto is a beach town near Rotella. When I say that Italy is empty of people during August, I mean that they have evacuated all the major cities and parked their extremely tanned asses at beach towns like these.

Italy: Porco Festival
August 18th, 2015

Italy_2015 - 89

The reason we came to Italy in the middle of August, a month where everything is closed for summer and it’s hot as hell, was because we wanted to attend Rotella’s Porco Festival. It’s a three day festival celebrating pork in all it’s forms. The entire town comes together to put on this festival which attracts huge crowds for such a tiny village.
