Si, si, I concur! Let's start a new thread. E.K., I have read many of your threads, and I think if you drag my sis around you'd both have a ball! Though she's not what you would call "worldly", she is a hoot to be with and we do a lot of laughing. I can't wait to post our trip report! As I may have mentioned before, after Italy we fly to Istanbul for three days. I've made a note of all your restaurant recommendations, and I'm definitely going to the place with the banana dessert! I must say, I fixed the most wonderful banana crepes tonight for my husband and I. Here in Korea, you cannot buy three or four bananas. You must buy a huge amount. O.K. I've digressed completely, back to Roman foods, Franco! Principessa

Zerlina, thank you for the info. Yes, I remember reading these things when I researched the timpano. There is a very ancient Italian cookbook which was referenced, but I cannot at the moment recall the name. Very interesting!

You know, Princess, I will be in your neck of the woods next week! I think I ought to let you AND your sister drag me around...on second thought, I am not sure I am interested in mock-kalbi made from bean curd....

I am enjoying reading your posts...you have the right spirit and are very welcome here among this select group with the esoteric food interests...soon to be granted our very own thread....

So..should I take the plunge here or wait for Don Franco to do the honors...??

ek, one more identity that's definitely not mine is that of a catholic priest!!!! ("Don", in Italian)
Ok, I'm currently working on the new thread's title. Give me a little time... we need a title that doesn't make it a private discussion of the three of us (much as I like these, but WE know where we're having our scattered gastronomic conversations - the new thread's purpose is to bundle them and make them more easily available to others).

Ooops. Franco..and here I was thinking along the lines of an honorific! What about "commendatore?"

You are correct about bundling and making it open to all....we will await the appearance of this new thread with much anticipation!

Ladies (and gentlemen?), here we go: esoteric questions of Italian food, other than Roman or Venetian: http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...p;tid=34967038

End of excursus, this thread goes back to Roman food & restaurants!

Dear e.k., I'm sorry if I led you to believe that my "little traveled" sister was here in Korea with me. She lives in N.Y. and wouldn't come here for all the kimchi in Korea! Sadly, I don't think she has ever looked at a map. So I have much homework to do before we go to Italy next month to educate her a little. I am leaving for LA April 5, then NY, then Italy and Turkey, then NY, then Chicago for a wonderful reunion with gal friends, then back to LA and finally San Diego for my daughter's college graduation. I return to Busan on May 26, just in time for the heat to set in.What are you doing in Korea, e.k.?Surely not for vacation. Are you going to Seoul? Can I answer any restaurant or food questions for you?
Are you taking marginela with you haha?
Can't wait to see you in Franco's new site! the princess

I just wanted to add here that our "private" conversation that has been transferred to the new Italian cooking thread in the end was not meant to stop this thread; we just wanted to allow this one to go back to Roman food & restaurants, as originally intended!

franco,

Not sure if you've seen my Rome trip report or not, but THANKS for the Osteria dell Angelo and Checchino recommendations! We ate at both and were very happy with each place. Had coda, pajata and zampino at Checchino! Yum!

Bill

Bill, thank you for notifying me. I had noticed your report's extraordinarily nice title, but didn't read it so far since I didn't know it was yours (and I'm running out of time - departing for a long holiday in a few days; Greece though, no fine eating to be expected). I'm happy that you've liked Angelo and loved Checchino, as far as I see - and congratulations for being adventurous on food. It pays, doesn't it?

Yes, franco, it does pay. My attitude was sort of like, "What the hell!" Have fun in Greece.
