What's a chef welcome without good food right? For lunch that day, we had a feast! Chef Omar has specially created a 4-course lunch meal for us and I couldn't stop thanking my lucky stars for this opportunity. Yay!
So, I took my first bite with very little expectations and the moment the creamy warm ricotta filling hit my taste buds, my eyes widened and I looked at my table companions to say "THIS IS SO GOOD!" No, I'm not exaggerating. Somehow, this beautiful zucchini flower has turned into something so good that I wished my plate was filled with at least a dozen and not just two sexy pieces of. The zucchini had a silky texture and pleasant mild taste which then allowed the ricotta filling to take center stage. This was just the start of the meal and yet I was already fighting the urge to stand up and give Chef Omar a standing ovation. Okay.. had to control myself as we moved on to the next course.
For dessert, we were given two options and since my table mates all love their sweets, we were allowed to get one of each. Alright!
If you haven't been to Dolce Vita, well now is the perfect time to schedule a meal there or perhaps for those who have been there before, it's also a good time for another visit to try some of Chef Omar's special creations.
