A couple of people have asked recently why I blog - is it because I love cooking? Do I love eating out? My answer has been that I just love eating. Eating something fabulous is one of the simple pleasures in life, and I love sharing those finds (both of the recipe and restaurant variety) with others - like you! Of course, one of the down-sides of food blogging in Sydney is that with so many possible restaurants to try, I find it hard to make return visits to places I like. Such was the case with La Casa, as it has taken me over a year to return to a place I was impressed with on my first visit.
Half rack of pork ribs with fries $29
Linguine con gamberi e granchio (Linguine with prawns, crab, tomato, garlic, oil and chilli) $23
Garlic Pizza $9
Boy's pick of prawn and crab linguine was a more sensible choice, size-wise, and I almost didn't get a chance to nab any of his food before it was eaten. The prawns were fabulous, pasta great, and boy, who usually dislikes pasta with seafood and tomato (don't ask me why he ordered it!) deemed it a winner.
Far too full to contemplate dessert, we vacated our table for the waiting hoard.
