Dinner At Strada - The Review

It's becoming a bit of yearly tradition to head to Strada for Chris' mums birthday! I had actually forgotten how good the food is at Strada, it's completely underrated! I thought I'd share some pictures with you along with our thoughts on the food. Just incase you're looking for somewhere to go for a Christmas outing.

To start Chris and I shared the 'BURRATA E PROSCIUTTO DI PARMA'. We always tend to go for some kind of Antipasti if it's available when we eat out. This was a bit of a twist on the normal antipasti. It was a 'fresh mozzarella parcel filled with shredded mozzarella and cream' which they then served with Parma ham, artichokes and toasted ciabatta. This was right up my street, I have cheese and ham. Chris found it a bit too creamy for his liking, but still enjoyed it. Other people at the table went for different flatbreads, which were HUGE portions. We all ended up trying them and passing them around! 

For main we both went for 'BISTECCA DI MANZO' which in simple terms is sirloin steak and potatoes which peppercorn chips. The steak was cooked to perfection and the sauce was gorgeous. You could probably do with a few extra potatoes if I'm honest, but it just means you save room for dessert.

Speaking of dessert, I went for 'TIRAMISU' which tends to be my dessert of choice, especially when there is no cheesecake on offer. It was really yummy, packed with coffee and cream and drizzled in a chocolate coffee sauce. Chris went for 'PANNACOTTA' which comes with raspberries and couli. Lots of people went for this option at the table and although they liked the taste, the texture was a bit off. It was a lot thicker than traditional Pannacotta.

We really enjoy going to Strada, it's a bit more pricey than places like Prezzo and Zaza, but the food is a bit more upmarket and definitely yummy!
