A couple of weeks ago, the boyfriend and I were invited by my parents to go to dinner at Cucina Marangon. It’s a fantastic Italian restaurant in Turnhout, Belgium. No. No pizza or spaghetti bolognaise… It’s a very classy restaurant. Once you go
black Cucina Marangon, you can’t go back! 😉
Why we went to this restaurant? Because my parents had something to celebrate: Their 25th Marriage Anniversary! 😀 Hip Hip Hooray!
Let me walk you through our great evening. I do have to apologize for not having pictures of the delicious appetizers because we couldn’t keep our hands off… Sorry!
I’m also very sorry for the bad quality of my pictures. I forgot my camera and since the restaurant is so cozy, it’s difficult to take good pictures. If you have any tips or tricks to fix that, please let me know 🙂
I do have a picture of this mini pizza appetizer which was great!
Let’s start our 5 courses menu 🙂 My mom and the boyfriend took the adapted wines. I sticked with water and my dad (our driver) had a special ‘Bob arrangement’ :p That meant he could take a sip of every wine ^^
Course 1: Tuna | Pumpkin coulis | French dressing from pine nuts | Beans
Course 2: Tagliolini Vongole
Course 3: Risotto with rabbit, truffle & vanilla
Oh man. I LOVE Risotto and this one was soooo good! Yumm!
Main Course: Duck with polenta croquettes
My two favorite meats: rabbit and duck. Lucky me! 😀
Dessert: Soufflé Glacé Marsala
A yummy trio with amarena cherries 🙂 I especially liked the tiramisu with this cherry (the one on the left)
And as if that wasn’t enough:
Was it good? No. It was great! 😀
Look at this glass of wine, it’s insanely big! Our friendly sommelier told us it fits a whole bottle… Can you believe it 😮
If you ever get the chance to go to Cocina Marangon, please go there. You won’t regret 😉
Have a delicious day ❤
