Bella Italia // Grub Crawl

14 January 2015
Before watching the incredible 'Into The Woods' this evening, myself and a couple of friends decided to grab a bite to eat at Bella Italia. I'm a very fussy eater, and there's a lot of things I don't really or assume I won't like, but today I was armed and ready to try something a bit new, as forced upon myself at the start of the year, and was ready to step out of my comfort zone. I felt an ounce of pride and determination as I sat down to look at the menu.

Unfortunately I got a little overwhelmed with everything and played it safe with a 'Caesar Pollo' - a Caesar Salad topped with chargrilled chicken and a cheese I can't remember the name of but was beautiful anyway. In an effort to not let my 12-days-ago-self down completely, and try something at least a little bit different, I asked for some added avocado. Everyone talks about how great it is, how healthy it is, and how versatile it is, and here I was a guy who'd never even looked at one in real life. The verdict: I honestly can't decide if I like it or not so some pretty hardcore avocado experimentation is yet to come - stay tuned. Try not to get too excited.

For starters, whilst my friends opted for the Italian speciality Bruschetta, I had... a bowl of about 12 chips, with balsamic vinegar trickled over parts - a hefty contrast against my upcoming salad. The orange juice made up for it though, right?

Overall, I'd give my meal a solid 7/10. Here's a few cheeky pictures:
