The days are getting colder, the nights are longer and if thats not an excuse to eat more comfort food, I don't know what the hell is. Who can say no to bowls brimming with pasta? I'll give you a clue, not me.
Always a fan of a new food find (luckily enough they are aplenty in London), last weekend we bundled ourselves off to to the soft launch of Pastaio. Tucked away down a side street in Soho you'll find this new little Italian gem just waiting for you to get your carb loading on.
I got to studying the menu straight away, its serious business you know, close attention must be paid.
Decisions made and drinks ordered (go for the proseco slush, it's like being a kid again but way more fun because now you can have booze in there), we made quick work of the bread and peered over at the kitchen whilst they cooked up a storm.
The starters arrived in a flurry of excitement and I had to snap away quickly to avoid losing fingers.
The mozzarella toastie was amazing. Whats not to love about a slab of melted cheese wedged between two slices of fried bread?
Starters were wolfed down in a matter of minutes so I eagerly awaited the arrival of the main attraction and wasn't disappointed.
I instantly had a trespasser from across the table, just making sure it was ok for me apparently. If you believe that, you'll believe anything.
Food envy was in full force...
Everything was delicious, and even though the plates weren't huge, it was more than enough. Although I'm not going to judge if you order something extra to share...or just for yourself. You can never have too much Italian food right?
Plates were clear pretty quickly so the only logical thing to do was order desert and knock back a few more slushies until they arrived.
Because sharing is caring, especially when it comes to dessert.
It was awful, can you tell?
If you're like me and pasta is your happy place, this is definitely a little spot for you. So what are you doing, stop reading and get yourself over there. Plus, if you get there quickly they're giving you 50% off until next week, it just keeps getting better, I know.
