Berenjena/Eggplant Parmigiana . . . ?/?
- Finally decided to ask here for suggestions for restaurants in the
Central Valley, between SJ & Alajuela, or thereabouts where some
of our CRLers may have eaten a decent plate of this with a nicely
seasoned tomato sauce.
The only places I've found any were last year at Bacchus in Santa Ana,
and recently at La Fabrica, in Alajuela. Both were appetizer portions
smallish and tasty, but pricey. Bacchus' offering was by far the better
of the two.
What I'm really after is a dinner portion in a restaurant somewhere
that's a reasonable drive from Alajuela Centro.
Centro to west side of SJ is good, and Escazú, Santa Ana, Belén, and
Heredia, too. I would go to Alida's in Atenas if I knew they had it on
I figure that out of our sea of CRLers a couple of 'em ought to know
a place serving eggplant Parmigiana that doesn't cost the whole farm.
There's just too many Italian restaurants around not to have at least
a few which offer this.
- Paul, when I get a hankering for Eggplant Parmigiana, I tend to go to Il Pomodoro in Escazú. I think they call it Lasagna de Berenjena there, but it's EP all the same.
