I had a wonderful dinner at this Japanese Italian chain Il Chianti before, I came back to try their lunch. They kept the Japanese way: $8-10 set lunch that includes everything from drinks, soup, salad, and dessert!
Pork soup and salad (w. delicious Japanese salad dressing).
Pasta of the day is Tomato sauce with Pork and zucchini and a so-so Bacon Wrap (should have just got Pasta-only). Joan got their Lunch Plate which is basically a sampler plate, with the same pasta/salad I had plus Beef Tongue.
Macha Bavarois with creamy milky red bean sauce, so good! Despite the incredible deal, and pasta being very well made, I craved for more unique flavor. That’s why lunch sets are always a dilemma: should I get the preset Lunch set that comes with everything, or just one pasta of my true craving…^^;;
They’re having an anniversary all-half price celebration on 10/19 (hope I remember right).
