Playing Favorites: Amici

March 25th, 2013


amici

I don’t think there’s anybody here who doesn’t love Amici. Right?

A favorite of many, I always make it a point to order the Tesori Del Mare pasta whenever I’m here. But one can get tired from having the same dish over and over again, so I went with a dish that sounded and looked good on the menu.

Well, I wouldn’t really know since I only tried the chicken here and not the beer. ­čśŤ Although I’m pretty sure it’ll be a great combo considering how much I loved the meal I tried at Chicken & Beer, a cozy little restaurant-slash-hangout-place in Burgos Circle. Read the rest of this entry »
