Dinner from the Sea in Syracuse
For dinner we had an amazing meal at Apollonion Osteria da Carlo. As usual, we found it on TripAdvisor.
Apollonion did a fixed menu of all kinds of amazing seafood. The idea was that it’s one price, and they serve you what’s fresh. It was pretty amazing.
Sooo … you see those white wormy looking things in those fish cakes? Definitely ‘neonati’ (‘newborn’) fish. Definitely wasn’t sure I understood the guy when he explained that in Italian. But it became clear when I saw their tiny eyes and fins. Soo… a little strange, but unquestionably delicious.
By the time we reached the pasta, we knew we couldn’t eat it all. But it, like everything else before it, was delicious.
The seafood pasta had barnacles in it … which was interesting. ‘Cause I’m used to seeing those stuck to poles at the jersey shore. And I know you think that would psychologically bias me … but I’m pretty sure I just don’t like barnacles. I ate the newborn fish didn’t I?
This meal definitely satisfied the craving for seafood. I love getting to try so many different things in one sitting, and the courses were great. We’d definitely recommend this restaurant for a Sicilian fresh seafood fix.
