Food Porn: Mulberry’s

index3

This Monday, Alli and I had the privilege of going to dinner with my aunt and uncle at this hidden gem of Lackawanna, NY.  Mulberry’s is a lovely Italian restaurant that tries to make you feel like you’re in little Italy in NYC (hence the name, based off a street in said district).

Now, this place is near the old Bethlem Steel plant for those who are familiar with Buffalo, NY.  Not the greatest area in the world, but don’t let that fool you.  This tiny little place is gorgeous inside and the food is really good.  We started off with two lovely appetizers, from Fried Calamari and Truffle Fries (which are fries fried in truffle oil then covered with cheese).  I wasn’t a huge fan of the calamari, it tasted ok but the texture obviously was a little bit of an issue.  And if something is going to feel “weird” while I chew it, I’d like it to have some type of taste to outweight the weird.

After our awesome appetizers, we got to the main course.  The whole day I had been looking at their menu online trying to decide what to get.  I’m all about trying something new and I went with someone different but safe.  I love lobster, so the Lobster Ravioli in Vodka sauce sounded just right.  This might have been the first time I have ever finished an Italian meal.  They were amazing, actual bits of lobster meat inside the ravioli combined with some cheese (I assumed ricotta).

Alli got herself the Penne in vodka, similiar sauce (which was great, never was a big vodka sauce fan before) and her meal looked delicious.  Overall the meal was great, we had a fun time with good conversation and a new place to add to my restaurant list.
