Work has been kind of stressful so there's only one thing to do, right? EAT!
Recently, Michael and I decided to eat at Emilio's in Lansdowne. We have eaten there a few times before but either all those visits were during lunch or they raised their prices. It was just a small notch above what we normally pay to eat out but when you're trying to stay on budget, a small notch means a lot.
Well, I chose the mushroom ravioli.
It was good but the portion, for the price, was kind of small. I have always wished that restaurants serve smaller portions... But at a cheaper price, you know? Don't get me wrong, it wasn't skimpy, but I definitely wished there were like, I don't know, maybe three or four more raviolis, especially since they weren't that big. I suppose it's quality over quantity. The pasta was just the right thickness and al dente. However, you can get a bag of mushroom raviolis for like $4 at Wegman's. Of course, it's not as good but it comes kind of close and, it's $4.
Michael chose the seafood linguine.
It was one of the most priciest thing on the menu and came with a generous amount of squid, muscle, and clam but they totally skimped out on the shrimp. Since he paid so much for it I lied and said it was fantastic but, to be honest, I found it very bland. He said it was absolutely delicious. Either his taste buds are more sensitive than mine or he was trying to justify spending so much on pasta.
Will we go back? Meh, maybe for lunch. I heard pizza is where they really shine so maybe we'll give that a try. However, if it's dinner time and I'm feeling hungry for some pasta Emilio's is not where I would want to go.
