It's a while between lunches at Church St Enoteca but the news of pork cheeks on the menu had us scurrying in.
Paalo went straight for the Headcheese/Coppa di Testa, presented as a robust cylinder on the plate. As the cheek is quite rich you need a certain level of acidity to cut through it and the combination of salsa verde, capers and cornichons works a treat
The baccala was calling my name - presented in a different style, more soup like in consistency. You'll certainly need some of their delicious bread to mop up the plate.
For a change, Paalo ordered the duck - the breast was well cooked, still tender and moist.
I kept on the seafood theme with this beautifully cooked piece of blue eye.
a new version of cheesecake, which tastes as good as it looked.
