Firenze: Mangiare!

Por supuesto que en nuestro viaje a Florencia no podia faltar la comida. La comida italiana es famosa en todo el mundo, quizás porque es una mezcla de simpleza e ingredientes frescos que dan como resultado una comida con mucho sabor y reconfortante.

Más allá de la típicas pasta y pizzas, quisimos adentrarnos un poco más en la cocina italiana y probar especialidades de la región.

Of course that in our trip to Florence the food could not miss. Italian food is famous worldwide, maybe because of the mix of simplicity with fresh ingredients that give as a result a food full of flavor and comfort.

Beyond the typical pasta and pizzas, we wanted to go deeper into the italian food and to try regional specialities.

I Quattro Leoni

I Quattro Leoni es un restaurante cerca del Ponte Vecchio, situado en una placita tranquila y como escondida del bullicio e ir y venir de la gente, ofrece una variedad de platos toscanos y especialidades florentinas.

Empezamos pidiendo dos antipasti, uno con tomate  y otro mixto. Una entrada simple, pero llena de sabor, aunque tengo que admitir que un poco abundante para mi.

Como plato principal, yo pedí Trippa a la Florentina: Panza en una salsa de Tomate. Un plato que me sorprendió por lo rico que estaba a pesar de lo simple en apariencia.

A. decision probar Frittura d’ Aurore:  un plato de verduras y carne de conejo fritos acompañados de polenta.

Este pequeño restaurante nos dejó satisfechos, no solo por la calidad de la comida, las porciones abundantes sino tambien por encontrarse en un lugar tranquilo, donde pudimos pasar una cena muy agradable.

 

I Quattro Leoni it’s a restaurant near Ponte Vecchio, located in quiet little plaza, that is hidden of the noise and all the people, that offers a variety of tuscan dishes and florentines specialties.

We started with two antipasti, one with tomato and the other one was mixed. A simple but full of flavor entree, but I have to admit it was to abundant for me/

As a main dish, I had the Trippa a la Florentina: tripe in a tomato sauce. A dish that surprised me for how tasty it was despite its simplicity.

A. Decided to try Frittura d’Aurore: fried veggies and rabbit meat, with polenta as a side dish.

We were satisfied of this little restaurant, not only by the quality of the food, but also because of the big portions and that it is in a quiet place, where we had a very agreeable dinner.

 

 

 

Bevo Vino (via di S.Niccolo,59/r)

En nuestro camino hacia Piazzale Michelangelo, nos paramos a almorzar en un lugar que nos atrajo por su decoración y sus mesitas en la calle, donde la gente parecía estar pasando un buen momento.

Yo me dejé tentar por un bruschetta de queso con prosciutto, otra vez me sorprendió lo rico y simple de lo que pedi.

A. opto por un plato de rodajas finas de carne de cerdo acompañado de una ensalada. Igual que mi plato estaba rico, la carne era tierna y llena de sabor.

On our way to Piazzale Michelangelo, we stopped to have lunch in a place caught our attention for its cute decoration and the tables on the street where people seemed to be having fun.

I decided to try the bruschettas with prosciutto and cheese and again i was surprised how good it was and yet so simple. 

A. opted for pork sliced accompanied of a salad. And like my dish, it was  tasty, the meat was tender and full of flavor.

 

Y para terminar, un rico Gelato, fresa y coco, porque no podia irme de Italia sin haber comido un helado 😉

And to finish, a delicious Gelato, strawberry and coconut, because I could not leave Italy without eating an ice cream 😉
