Yesterday I got to meet a Teap (;_; *grabby hands*) for our fujoshi meeting and we decided to try some popular places to eat here in Rome!
The first one that we checked (after Teap's SHAMEFUL DELAY OF +2 HOURS. All the internet must know about this.) was Gelato Bistrò
This was crazy :DDDD It's a place that focuses on ice-cream, of course, but they make all kind of weird tastes, like gorgonzola, mortadella and whatever!
I got an "Aperisushi" (a sushi aperitive, featuring maki sushi, some crudities and special ice creams to your pick from the dedicated tastes) with sesame, ginger and wasabi ice creams, and later on we had a salty crepes (zucchini, cheese and smoked ham!) with gorgonzola cheese ice cream!
It was quite crazy, but it tasted really good, expecially if you ate the ice cream with the various stuff!
--One weird thing, the girl serving us kept suggesting me things that she didn't like XD I got the wasabi and gorgonzola stuff 'cause she recommended them, then when we were talking she was all "Oh, I hate the taste so I never tried it!" and I was like "--UH?!" x'DDD
Then when I told her that I hate spicy flavours she told me to try HABANERO ICE CREAM
. And I was like "Are you trying to kill me or what..?" and refused QUITE ENERGICALLY.
I'm sure you'd like pictures. So here you go
Since there was still some room left in our stomaches, we went to Fa Bio
to try one of their veggie smoothies.
The place was insanely crowded (we had to wait over 15 minutes to get our thingies), there were ingredients missing (so they couldn't make their 'signature smoothies' for us) and the place is extremely tiny and uncomfortable.
I got a really weird smoothie with cucumber, fennel and grapefruit. It tasted like a weird salad XD
The guys who served us were quite kind and friendly, but couldn't give us any suggestion for our alternative smoothies-- If my smoothie tasted horribly it was my fault for picking such ingredients (that I like very much, singularly taken XD) but why nobody told me hat I was doing a terrible mix?!
The answer I got to my "What do you suggest?" was "Whatever you like ^_^" so it was kinda pointless XD If I go somewhere I'd like to deal with the creativity of the owners, otherwise I can eat home XD
...Yet, I don't feel like not recommending it yet! Next time I'll be around there, I'll try it again, and maybe try one of their first courses dish... Assuming that I'll manage to get there before they run out of ingredients >_>; ..!
After the lunch, me and Teap were up for a visit to the Botanical Garden
, but the lack of buses and the need to translate our shit in a nice mood, made us go back to our little park by the train station where I STRONGLY ENCOURAGED a Teap to translate me a comic to make up for her tardiness in the morning ;D
Have a shot of Teap using the Japanese dictionary of her cellphone like a boss (= "Umphf, Dae, what is it, I can't find iiit ;_; !")∼
In case you're curious, it's this comic here
. I'm planning to scanlate it, after all of Teap's efforts! Look forward to it, please!
Now, besides what will be of me without my Teap, the real question is... What's the point of habanero ice cream ;_; ..?
