Moving on from German cookies, we have a guest post from The Unc today of a great meal he had at La Vecchia Osteria in Leverkusen, Germany. Enjoy! ;)
After a day of moving, we decided to treat ourselves with a trip to the local Italian. And what a trip that was! We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food on offer and the visuals and ambiance of the restaurant was great as well.
Pre-Starter of fresh bread and sliced ham. The freshly sliced ham was divine!
We shared this mixed starter platter (Antipasto misto) consisting of more ham(!), various seasoned vegetables and vitello tonnato.
One of the mains:- Spaghetti aglio olio with seasonal chantarelles. Nice textures and flavours on a plate.
Grilled scampis with a salad. The shrimp was plump and grilled to perfection. Bello!
Grilled Angus fillet with fresh herbs and jacket potato. The beef was cooked beautifully and the fresh herbs complemented the richness of the meat well.
There was room for dessert and it definitely did not disappoint. The beautifully light tiramisu left us dreaming of more.
Verdict: We were definitely wowed by the food at this restaurant and by the looks of it, we might be frequenting this place a bit more in the future.
