Chicken Florentine

Chicken Florentine

A reunion after 15 plus years and some great starters is what my time at Romano’s Macaroni Grill was all about.

We started with the Chicken Florentine, which is a stunning, tangy mix of rice pasta, chicken cubes, freshly cut spinach leaves, sliced tomatoes and shavings of parmesean cheese to top that goodness off.

It is amazing how food can be a terrific conversation starter ( not that we needed that after FIFTEEN years of getting together ) but we had enough to talk about.

Next, we had the Goat Cheese Peppadew Peppers. Oh my God! I have never had this reaction to any food item on my restaurant reviews. As I was taking a succulent bite into this (I am salivating as I type) man-made food creation, I couldn’t help but wonder if there was some sort of a divine intervention the inventor of this dish had while making it.

A genius mix of sweet piquanté peppers, known as ‘peppadew’, goats cheese and chives, we just could not get enough of this starter.

After that, we proceed to the mains. I ordered the Pan-seared Hammour and the Penne Arrabiata and my friend ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo and Pizza Margharita.

Unfortunately, the Hammour was a little undercooked for my personal taste. So, I focused on the Penne Arrabiata and the Pizza, which was a good combo of soft and crispy – crispy crust and ultra soft rest-of-the Pizza, just the way I like it.
