How about a trip to sun-kissed Sicily?
Well, you won’t have to travel far to savor the rich culinary traditions of Southern Italian cuisine. Just drop by Sicilian Roast by Giuseppe Genco in Legazpi Village, Makati.
At this quiet spot in the busy commercial district, diners can sit back, relax and leisurely savor the fulsome flavors of Southern Italy as they sip on fine wines or their cocktails of choice.
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, which also serves as the crossroads between various cultures, landscapes and cuisines.
Sicilian food is heavily influenced by various cultures that have existed on the island for over two millennia. These culinary traditions include the use of dried fruit, nuts and spices from Arab countries, the fondness for meat dishes from the Normans and the introduction of ingredients from the New World by the Spanish.
At its heart, Sicilian cuisine is all about the fresh ingredients that celebrate the fruits of the land and sea, made evident in Sicilian Roast’s celebrated dishes such as:
Parmesan Truffle Chips (Php250). Hand-cut potatoes, deep-fried to a gorgeous golden brown, flavored with truffle oil and parmesan cheese and served with Gorgonzola and Cream Cheese Dip.
Burrata Alla Caprese (Php370). Fresh creamy burrata cheese on a bed of romaine lettuce and halved cherry tomatoes.
Quattro Formaggio (Php430). Neapolitan-style pizza topped with a white sauce and four kinds of cheese: Gorgonzola, Smoked Scamorza, Mozzarella and Parmesan.
Tartufo Prosciutto (Php615). Neapolitan-style pizza topped with white sauce flavored with truffle cream, mushrooms, scamorza cheese, mozzarella and covered with thin slices of prosciutto.
Bellini (Php160). Cocktail made with peach schnapps and proseco.
