LEGENDARY PASTA & SANDWICHES! Food Tour of Florence Italy

  • Published on Sep 19, 2018
  • My food adventure in Florence Italy continues as I spend the entire day just eating nonstop which is my type of fun :-) I really wanted to try out some iconic Florentine dishes and just as much pasta as I can get my hands on.
    For my first stop I went to the central market which is a great place to just hang out and eat, walk around then eat some more and hit the repeat button all day. Then I went looking for a local restaurant that is PACKED all the time and finally went pasta hunting. All in all, a pretty fun day!
    The places I ate at
    Da Nerbone
    Trattoria Mario
    Panini Toscani
    Trattoria Casalinga

    @strictly dumpling at the last restaurant you ate at in the video... were you able to complete the meal in 90 minutes as you said you needed to do in order to be seated there?

  • Mike D

    Even if I had this video on mute, I would be drooling at what I was looking at. The prices also were so freaking cheap, makes me mad when we pay twice as much here in the US for something not even half as good (looking or tasting)

    Hi Mike! This past spring semester in college I studied abroad in Perugia, Italy for 6 months (it’s right between Rome and Florence) and I couldn’t recommend a place more to go for food! I had been to Florence and Rome many times when I was abroad and the food is obviously amazing in those two places but the food in Perugia I think is even more amazing! It’s even more affordable as well. If you ever go back to Italy, which I highly recommend, you should go to smaller cities as well! The food, the views, and the people are truly amazing and it really gives you a feel of the true Italian lifestyle. The region of Umbria has amazing little towns and cities and I would recommend them to anyone if you want to see more of Italy!

    Ms. Keyser says she doesn’t know Kavanaugh and there was no party she remembers? Do you think it’s possible that Ford took the book Judge wrote and inserted herself into a story that’s a combination of stuff in the book+additional fictional events? since no one invited ford or send her home?

    Chapter 11:7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.
    8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.
    9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
    10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
    11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
    12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

    Chapter 66:
    15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
    16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
    17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

    Hello, Humans. In the words of Agent Smith from(The Matrix)"I'd like to share a revelation I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with their surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to another area, and you multiply, and you multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague, and we are the cure." ~Agent Smith
