We had lunch at Ormeggio a few months ago, so my recollection is somewhat hazy. What I do remember though is the mindblowing bottoni – tiny buttons of pasta exploding with a cheesy broth interior. The experience is almost like eating a xiao long bao. But instead it’s an umami-heavy parmigiano reggiano soup within the pasta. Oh lordy, it was one of the best things I ate in 2016. Plus that freaking incredible cheese box. The idea of matching cheese with a type of bread and different kinds of dried fruit or fruit paste makes so much sense to me. And did I mention it’s served in a custom-made box with tiny drawers? What a revelation. I need one.
Anyway, it was awesome. Here are some photos. The end.
