We’re a couple of die hard foodies and as much as we enjoy a wide variety of casual cuisine, we also enjoy the fine dining experience. More so, a fine dining experience abroad. Every city we visit, we always keep one evening free to trot off to a michelin starred restaurant to sample the genius. We’re quite adventurous in the kitchen at home but in terms of when we’re out we have very different preferences. For example, I’m a savoury girl and Christian has the ultimate sweet tooth. Don’t get me wrong, I adore a good dessert but as it’s not my favourite element of an exquisite meal, it makes me super picky.
Today I’m writing about the divine 1 Michelin Starred, Metamorfosi Restaurant in Rome. The champion of creativity in the kitchen at Metamorfosi is Chef Roy Salomon Caceres. Our evening was an absolutely incredible culinary experience consisting of fabulous food, exceptional hospitality and a very relaxing ambience.
After taking a couple of standard pre-dinner photos at the Palazzo Montemartini we were off! We had to take a taxi as this restaurant is very much in the middle of nowhere and even from the outside looks very secretive and unsuspecting. However, as soon as you set foot inside the doors your luxurious experience begins. We took a fleeting glance at the menu, but we instantly decided to partake in the 6 course taster menu that we’d heard so many great things about. I do enjoy a good taster menu me although I don’t always feel that way by the end when I’m bursting at the seams.
Enjoy my photographic journey of the highlights of my visit to Metamorfosi 🙂
So here we go, do not continue reading if you’re hungry, just don’t do it to yourself! I made the error of writing this on an empty stomach and I can feel it rumbling.
I don’t drink wine so the wine pairing option was off the cards for me, it’s ok though, as Christian can drink enough wine for the both of us, what a champ :p . The waiter however let me drink champagne from a wine glass so I didn’t feel left out… one sip and the giggles kick in.
Carbonara Egg (my absolute favourite course)
Seafood Stuffed Pasta
Risotto Topped Carpaccio & Toasted Pistachio
The Pork & Guacamole Ice Cream
NEXT UP, SWEET!
Believe it or not, see this little ball of white chocolate excellence? Well, it was actually filled with GORGONZOLA.
It was surprisingly beautiful…
Espresso time! Since returning from Rome, I’ve now ditched the after dinner cappuccino and traded it for an espresso instead, I’ve been converted.
F I N I R E !
And so with a full stomach and light head (for some of us, Christian!) we headed back to the hotel for a night cap at the Palazzo Montemartini Rooftop Bar.
Thank you for reading
