Before i start, i would like to apologize for the lack of updates. Trust me, life has been so hectic for me that i barely able to enjoy my own me-time after school and work. The only shows i saw on TV were either news at 11, late show with Letterman, late late show with James Corsden ( did i spell it right? ) or sometimes a little bit of morning talkshows before i head out to start my daily activity. Thank God that i am still able to spend quality time with boo on weekend — which is a plus b/c that means bye bye looking at my phone or any other things.
Anyhow anyway, last Easter on 4/5/15 boo, me, and his parents went to this lovely restaurant in Brooklyn called Marco Polo. We went straight after the Sunday Easter mass in the afternoon and arrived at around 3ish pm. Since it was still early so boo and i decided to walk around the other store while his folks went other way. We went to this little bakery where i bought eclairs and custard puffs (indonesian folks would know this as kue soes lol). I forgot the bakery’s name but their pastries surely were delicious. While i was eating the eclair, boo informed me that his folks were already seated so we decided to go inside.
Marco Polo may not be the trendiest or hippest dining place but they surely did have delicious foods! Felt more like dining at the next door neighbor you already knew for years. As a foodie, i could not care less about the interior although i must say i did feel homey there. And that is a good thing 😉
Since it was Easter Sunday so the patrons who dined there were expected to order the special Easter package which normally came with a choice of appetizer, entree, and a dessert. Truthfully, i have no idea how much the costs of the Easter lunch per person but i think it is a pretty good bargain consider this restaurant is not the type you want to come everyday lol. (it was reasonable but then again, we’re talking about average New Yorkers)
We started with a glass of Pinot Grigio (did i tell you how much i love white wine?!). I ordered buffalo ravioli for my appetizer while boo ordered hot antipasto. J ordered same appetizer as mine while A had some spaghetti thingy. For the entree, everybody had the rack of lamb leg. For desserts, A and i ordered tiramisu while boo ordered cheesecake and J ordered some type of ice cream.
I loved my ravioli. It literally melt in my mouth — too bad they only served four lol. A said his appetizer was ok while boo said his was great. J also liked the ravioli. As for entree, we all LOVEDDD the lamb! I wish i could make that lamb at home. Lol. The lamb was so tender and juicy i wiped the sauce like crazy lol. As for dessert? I liked the tiramisu, boo’s cheesecake was delicious, A did not say anything while J said her ice cream was okay.
So, was it worth it? Heck yeah, if i have a chance to go back i’d definitely go back and try their other selections of foods and desserts.
