Ricotta Fritters with Summer Fruits and Honey - Enoteca Vino Bar
Curious about Enoteca Sileno and the Enoteca Vino Bar for ages, we were finally in this part of town and decided to drop by. Judging by the breakfast we had, we'd be back for a few more meals!
First up was the rustic-looking bread and butter pudding made with Italian Panetone. It was served warm, which allowed the luscious lashings of chocolate custard to become molten puddles of flavour. It was also studded with candied fruit, just like those used in a panforte. The best of all was that the panetone was nice and moist and not claggy. It was also served with a pot of whipped ricotta and cream, slightly sweetened so it was good to on it's own!
We had also ordered the ricotta fritters, which turned out to be gloriously fluffy golden pancakes drizzled with honey and scattered with fresh fruit. Amazing. Even better than the ricotta hotcakes at Replete Providore, although maybe not as visually stunning.
After breakfast we had a stroll through the foodstore which was packedd full of Italian treats, worth a visit on it's own!
