Platto Vegetariano

June 5, 2010

Good morning! 

Last night, as promised, we hit up a restaurant called Zucca.  The guidebook claimed that the restaurant had some great vegetarian options, and…it was right! Zucca had a lot of different vegetarian main courses, plus several veggie small plate options.  At least, I think it did…the menu was in all Italian, so we did our best!

Some of the menu items were hard to decipher, but I knew I had a good choice in the “Platto Vegetariano”…can’t go wrong with that, right?  Along with the vegetarian plate, I ordered sides of curried carrots in yogurt, and baked tomatoes with breadcrumbs and olive tapenade.  Ohhhhhh yum. 

We started with wine:

And then moved on to our meal:

The vegetarian plate contained carrots, broccoli, eggplant, some ratatouille-esque dish, potatoes au gratin, peas in pesto, and sesame rice.  So, so good.

The side dishes were equally delicious:

This meal was seriously tasty.  Plus, it contained the most veggies I’ve had in a while!  It was nice to see my friends again! 🙂

After dinner, we wandered around for a while, enjoying the city at night.

We both found our birth years:

That would be 1983A.

You can’t have too many canal pics, right? 🙂

And eventually stumbled upon a giant outdoor crowd listening to some (awful) live music.  A band was playing Beatles covers in a bar, and a lot of people were gathered outside of the bar, listening and drinking.  We sat down and listened for about half an hour.

This might be my last post for a while.  Today, we’re leaving for Croatia!  Our ferry doesn’t leave until five, so we’re walking down to the port we’ll be leaving from, putting our bags in a locker, and then exploring that area of Venice all day before shipping out for Croatia.

Not sure when my next post will be…but if you haven’t heard from me in a week, somebody come find us!

Hope you’re having a great weekend, friends!

    That definitely sounds like a great veg filled meal to me! I wasn’t a veg yet when I went to italy but I think I ate mostly vegetarian meals/pastas there anyway, so I am sure it can’t be too hard. Have fun in Croatia lady!
