We are fond of trying new restaurants and enjoy Italian food. Not too long ago we were craving Italian food and it was fairly late in the evening. We were hungry enough to feel satiated, but not go overboard. So we decided to try Sapore Halal Italian Eatery. This happened on a weekday night, so the restaurant wasn’t bustling, which we didn’t mind.
Our first impression was good, as we found the restaurant to be nice and clean with decent ambiance. Since we weren’t too hungry, we decided to share Antijitos for appetizer and ordered 8oz Steak with Peppercorn Sauce. Since this was our first time here, we decided to play somewhat safe by ordering dishes we knew we’d enjoy.
Antijitos were delicious; the beans and jalapeño peppers weren’t overpowering at all. The cream cheese of course made the experience all that enjoyable. Whenever we return, we’d love to order Antijitos again.
Our Steak in Peppercorn Sauce was delicious too. If you know what Peppercorn Sauce tastes like and enjoy it, you won’t be disappointed. The Peppercorn Sauce was slightly on the sweeter side, which was fine. You wouldn’t wanna go to two different restaurants and expect their Peppercorn Sauce to be exactly the same. The steak tasted fine as well. We prefer our steaks to be well done, which we forgot to mention. Hence, next time around we plan on indicating our preference for the steaks, so that we can enjoy it to a greater degree.
Since we decided to share the appetizer and steak, we had room for dessert. We ordered Tiramisu. Gotta say, it tasted good! It was very nice and moist and was served chilled.
Overall, we enjoyed our meal. We enjoy trying different restaurants, especially when they can offer same or similar dishes, but with their own touch of uniqueness. There are a couple of other halal Italian restaurants that offer slightly better presentation, but it’s nothing we can complain about. Our food arrived in a timely fashion as well.
Once our meal was served, no one came to our table to ask if we needed anything else. In our humble opinion, it would’ve been nice, especially since we had something on our mind, but we had to getup and ask. It would be nice if they drop by at least once to see everything’s ok and to remember to ask whether drinks and/or dessert is needed.
