July 5th, 2011 Forgotten Girl
I just finished talking to a friend who is in the US and all we talked about is food, Italian food in particular. We’re both Italian food lovers and we can talk nonstop about it. She and her cousin recently tried out Zugo’s Cafe and they both agreed that their food was great. His cousin spent a couple of years in Italy and he could tell that the food at Zugo tasted like authentic Italian food. (Well, it should as I’ve read on their website that the owners are Italian.)
They had pasta and panini. Both were excellent and were served with fresh green salad and freshly baked bread. Yum-o! Even the non-Italian desserts were delish, too. The food is reasonably priced and the restaurant’s ambiance makes one feel he’s in a cafe in Italy. And they promised to come back soon.
Oh how I wish we have Zugo’s Cafe here in my side of the globe! I’m craving for authentic Italian food right now and I so envy them as it’s hard to find authentic Italian food here without overspending. Yes, if you want to eat something authentic then you have to pay double the normal price you pay for the commercialized, non-authentic Italian food that some restaurants serve.
