This past weekend, we had dinner at Rome’s Pizza. It was only last week when we tasted their pizza for the first, when, under a lazy spell, we decided to just order for pick-up and eat in. That time, we ordered the medium-sized Shrimp Scampi Pizza. It was just wonderful! And the cheese…oohlala! We also ordered their Italian wings…zesty, yummy, finger-lickin’ goodness. :D
Back to this weekend… It has been our routine, for as long as I can remember, that we eat out during weekends. ;) Moreso now because weekends are my day off, which means, the kitchen is only open for a limited time. Hahaha! And because we were very much pleased with our late-lunch in bed last week, not to its proimity to where we live, Rome’s Pizza was the instant choice.
Pepperoni and Cheese
happy with her order
From the kiddie choices on the menu, we ordered the Pepperoni and Cheese Pizza for Abby…her personal choice. Her order comes with a drink, too.
Vegetarian Deluxe Pizza
sticky sticky cheese…yummeeee!
Hubby and I decided on a small Vegetarian Deluxe Pizza, small because we wanted to sample another food from the menu. Our pizza’s toppings included mozzarella cheese, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, and red onions (something both hubby and I aren’t fond of). It was the first time we ever ordered vegetarian pizza and I have to say, we’re glad we tried it! It’s something I can order again and again, but next only to the Shrimp and Scampi, of course! ;)
This was the other food we ordered, the Falafel. For the record, it was hubby’s choice. I was “hoping” for pasta. Hahaha! But I gave in, being the “dutiful” wife that I am. :P From the food’s description on the menu, I already had a bit of reservation for what was in store for us: A famous Middle Eastern veggie burger wrapped in pita, made with ground chick peas, parsley, onions and spices, deep fried until brown. Served with tzatziki, tahini, tomatoes and lettuce. But we were on a mission to try something new and eat healthy as much as we possibly can. So there. :)
After hubby and I took our first bite, we looked at each other and ended up giggling. I couldn’t take another bite even if my life depended on it. Hubby did finish his half, out of pride maybe. Hahaha! But raised his hands in surrender when I offered him the rest of my half. :D We didn’t like it primarily because our taste buds aren’t quite trained for this meditteranean specialty. Plus, we are not big fans of fresh (read: uncooked) red onions. And the Falafel was a little too tough to bite.
That being said, we still remain big fans of Rome’s. Theirs is the best tasting pizza we’ve tasted here in Austin thus far. It’s gourmet pizza and not the typical cardboard tasting kind that can be bought practically anywhere. ;)
Have a great new week, y’all and great meals to go with it! :D
