After a good night’s sleep, Paul and I were ready to get our grub on! Thankfully, the Marina Riviera served a complimentary breakfast and we were psyched to see the spread. And boy were we happy when we saw what was waiting for us.
They also have a separate menu where the cook whips up something on the spot. I chose simple scrambled eggs and hands down, they had to be the best tasting eggs I’ve ever had. It was buttery, soft but not too soft and definitely had umami.
Though wood was not used in the 19th century. They would get old rags/clothes and soak them in water until all the dye ran out. Then after quite some time the cloth would start decaying. This is where Paul came in. You would basically fish some cloth paper out, fit it into the mold and let it dry for a week or two.
Getting ready for our expensive honeymoon dinner @ the Eolo.
We reserved a day in advance and told our hotel concierge that we were on our honeymoon. Lo and behold! The best table in the house! Amalfi definitely made me feel like a superstar. Loved every nanosecond!
Calamari stuffed with seafood. And no, it’s not always fried! There was a young couple behind us who were very disappointed with their “calamari.” The guy fished out his iPhone, found fried calamari and showed the picture to his waiter. He said, “THIS is calamari. Not THAT.” We giggled a little.
We also finished off a bottle of very good white wine. It was a rare perfect day. 🙂
