Cafe Carolina: An Italian Feast

I know it seems that all I ever do on vacation is eat. And I can’t really deny it. All I want to do is sample the local fare. I think I watch too many travel shows that specialize in eating all over the city.

For our last sit-down meal in Los Angeles, we moseyed on over to Cafe Carolina . I had eaten too many rich and delicious foods that I didn’t think I could eat any more. But I was on vacation, and I do love to eat.

The restaurant is a lovely little family run italian place. All the food is made with organic ingredients, which I absolutely love. It’s hard to get organic things here there are very few restaurants that cook with organic food. I think Chipotle is one and Seasons 52 is another.

I ordered a very lovely meat dish, the name of which I have completely forgotten. I never remember the names of the Italian dishes. I never remember the names of the Japanese dishes for that matter. I’m horrible with names of dishes and the website doesn’t seem to have what I had on the menu. Maybe it was a special, which is totally plausible. It was a delicious dish and I ate most of it. The problem was that I knew there was dessert coming and I definitely wanted room for that.

Jenn had said that they made a sipping chocolate, which is like an uber hot chocolate. It’s like drinking chocolate. So I didn’t eat everything on my dish like a fatty.

The dessert was called hot chocolate decadence so I had have it. I mean, I complain all the time about how much the hot chocolate sucks around here. It takes a little bit extra time to make, but I tell you, O. M. G. it is totally worth it. It was a thick, smooth liquid that just slid into your mouth like heaven. And you just wanted more and more of it. It came in a tall mug and probably like a cup and a half. And trust me, that is all you really need because it totally fills you up. Just thinking about it makes me want to have some. Alas, all I can do is dream about it now.
