I’ve been heading out to Roncesvalles recently for a bunch of client work. I wanted to take the opportunity to suss out a few of the neighbourhoods new restaurant darlings. Top of my list (and the only spot open for lunch on a rainy day) was Pizzeria Defina. I was joined by my good food friend Karolyne Ellacott who shares my obsession with cheese.
It was absolutely poring rain out, if I had been wearing mascara I would have arrived looking like a mess. Thankfully I was just soaking wet with a battered umbrella. We sat by the fogged in window overlooking Roncy and enjoyed two carb heavy dishes which nourished the soul.
Wild Mushroom Linguini
truffle sauce and parsley
Roma Crust Pumba Pizza
wild boar meatballs, san marzano tomatoes, mushrooms, fior di latte, garlic caramelized shallots, pecorino
