I’ve been hearing about Il Corvo Pasta for quite a while now, so I was excited that I finally got to try it out. When I got there the line was way out of the door. ( I guess this is a good sign that the food is awesome here)

好幾年前就聽說過Il Corvo Pasta, 終於有機會來試吃讓我很期待.  當我到的時候, 排隊的隊伍已經到門外了 (我猜這表示Il Corvo Pasta一定很好吃)

Il Corvo is only open Monday-Friday from 11am-3pm, so you better make time for it during lunch hour. Il Corvo makes things simple and easy since there are threes rotating pasta on the menu to choose from. This is amazing for someone like me who always had a hard time on deciding things 😛

Il Corvo Pasta只有開禮拜一到五的中午十一點到3點, 這裡每天提供的義大利麺口味不一樣. 我來的這天有三種口味可以選擇. 這樣精簡的Menu非常適合我這種有選擇障礙的人 😛

My friend and I shared: Pappardelle Alla Bolognese, Pasta Mista, Cookie, and House Made Focaccia. They are all amazing!

I love their House Made Focaccia. It’s crispy on the outside while pillowy and chewy on the inside. Dipping it in olive oil made it tasted even better.

For their pasta dishes, there was more pasta compared to the sauce. However, the chief seasoned the sauce perfectly, so it tasted savory, creamy, and flavorful! I enjoyed the freshness of the ingredients in the pasta.

我和我朋友一起分享: Pappardelle Alla Bolognese, Pasta Mista, Cookie, House Made Focaccia. 全部都很美味!

很推薦他們的佛卡夏,  外皮酥脆, 裡面卻依舊鬆軟,  剝一小塊下來沾橄欖油讓佛卡夏的香氣更為迷人.

他們的義大利麺, 醬料看起來不多. 但廚師調味卻恰到好處, 吃起來很夠味, 也能吃出食材的新鮮.

I came to Vivo 53 because I have always wanted to try the carbonara served on cheese wheel, especially after I watched the BuzzFeedVideo which is comparing $8 pasta to $100 pasta. Therefore, I decided to come here during Sunday brunch time.

最近我看了BuzzFeedVideo的影片
影片中他們將$8 $100的義大利麺進行比較
其中$100的義大利麺是在整個起司上面炒義大利麺
作為起司控, 看完之後超想試試看!
所以我決定來Vivo53嘗試

Tuscan Fried Chicken & Waffle. vanilla maple syrup, honey butter, sea salt $17

A fluffy and sweet waffle is topped with a perfectly seasoned crispy fried chicken. The chicken meat was on the dry side, and I wished it could be moister. I like their vanilla maple syrup as it is delicious and goes well with the dish.

鬆軟的鬆餅上面鋪著調味剛好的酥脆炸雞
雞肉本身偏乾, 我喜歡比較濕潤的口感
餐點本身搭配的楓糖漿很好吃

NEW PARMIGIANO CHEESE WHEEL SERVED TABLE SIDE.ALA CARBONARA. spaghetti, guanciale, egg yolk, parmesan brodo, grated parmesan $22

It was fun to watch when the server brought the whole cheese wheel next to the table, place the pasta into the cheese, and then toss the hot pasta until the cheese slowly melts and combines with the pasta. While it was an Interesting experience, the taste was disappointing. it was way too salty for me. Also, for the amount of food, the price is not friendly at all.

這道料理上桌前, 服務生會將一整個起司帶到桌邊
將還是熱的義大利麺加入到起司中間
然後馬上拌炒, 讓義大利麺的熱氣融化起司
因為是第一次看到, 覺得很有趣
但口味讓我失望, 對我而言整體調味過鹹
也讓我覺得不值得這個價錢

Overall, it was an entertaining dining experience at Vivo 53. I would expect the food and the service to be better next time.

整體而言, Vivo53的用餐體驗很有趣
但我期待食物和服務可以再加強

▲LINGUINE ALLE VONGOLE $19
There was an abundance of baby clams over my linguine, and they were all super fresh and meaty. The linguine was well cooked and perfectly flavored with the white wine.
義大利麺上鋪著滿滿的新鮮蛤蜊
麵條煮的恰到好處; 吸附了飽飽的湯汁卻仍彈牙

【Recipe】義式番茄肉醬 Bolognese Sauce

Recipe |義式番茄肉醬 Bolognese Sauce


義式番茄肉醬是一道很簡單又百搭的料理
可以拌義大利麺, 或做焗烤料理
自己在家做的番茄肉醬因為採用新鮮番茄,
所以吃起來更為清爽卻不失其風味
而且一次做一大鍋,
吃不完的就分裝冷凍
想吃隨時加熱就可以嘍

Bolognese Sauce is quite easy to prepare, and it can be used to prepare many kinds of meal. You can add bolognese sauce with spaghetti, or you can bake it. Since I used fresh tomatoes to make my bolognese sauce, it tasted lighter but flavorful.
