Locanda Verde

David and Laura went to a special chicken dinner at Locanda Verde a while back (I was very jealous, trust me) but luckily, I had the opportunity to have brunch at Locanda Verde last weekend with my friend Sarah (we met through my blog and have become gossip buddies after sharing a wonderful meal at Annisa!) We went on an unseasonably warm Sunday afternoon:


Sarah was waiting for me when I arrived and we immediately got down to business – looking at the menu and deciding what to order! My neighbor (and dining companion at Sushi Azabu) really liked the sheep’s milk ricotta with toast and Sarah and I had eyed it as well, so we started off with that:


The Sheep’s Milk Ricotta with truffle honey and burnt orange toast was really delicious (with thyme and pepper) but the burnt orange toast was a little too burnt.

We also ordered the cinnamon sugar doughnut:


I wasn’t a huge fan of the doughnut but Sarah had a very enthusiastic reaction to it so I’m guessing it was a good doughnut.

I ordered the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with blueberries and meyer lemon curd:


The meyer lemon curd was really delicious but the pancakes weren’t that hot and I thought they fell a little flat. Also, I don’t really think they made our food to order because five minutes after we ordered, our food arrived (it made me feel a little rushed because there were so many people waiting at the bar for a table)

Overall, our meal was really good and the restaurant was really lively and bustling so I definitely want to return for dinner (or even a drink at the bar!)

I hate when food comes out TOO fast… makes me feel like they just reheated it instead of making it fresh… too bad about the pancakes. they look amazing. But i would be find with just the lemon curd LOL
