Eating out is not just a matter of feeding oneself, at least not in Italy. It’s also enjoying time and company, discovering typical tastes, new creative dishes and, last but not least, having fun while eating good food. It should be a complete satisfactory experience: from the moment you take a seat until the last sip of coffee.
While in Pavia we had the chance to enjoy lots of good food but especially two nice experience we would like to share with you!
The restaurant main dish is tigella, a sort of round flat bread, together with gnocco fritto, made with fried puff pastry. Both type of food is freshly made,cooked right in the moment you order them. A basket full of tigella with two gnocco fritto comes together with a side of your choice: cheese with honey and spicy sauces or cold cuts. The best part anyway is yet to come: with one single order you get a sort of “all you can eat” of tigella. Baskets and baskets are coming until you are full and you need to stop.
In addition to that, here we come to the creative idea of the restaurant: sauces. In fact, even before ordering, the waiter will bring you a board with twelve different toppings among sweet, salty and spicy ones. There is something for all tastes. You just need to try the different combinations and find your favourite!
At Batata restaurant a simple, ordinary potato can become a fancy gourmet lunch. How? With the help of a mix of studied ingredient as stuffing. In the menu you can find one combination for each region, plus the classic, everlasting tastes. All this in one huge potato, that will soothe your hunger for long. And if you prefer to stay light, you can always choose the smaller novelline, that are perfect also for who faces difficulties in choosing just one flavour and would like to taste everything.
The creative Batata is original and brilliant even in the dessert: you will pour your own coffee in the delicious tiramisu and custard in the donut. Build your dessert and have fun!
