On Saturday we set out for lunch at Il Posto, which is just a ten minute walk away from our apartment in fancy Yorkville. We had, for some reason, assumed that Il Posto was an entirely different restaurant that we had passed by before, but upon reaching said restaurant we realised we hadn't check directions at all, and had ended up in the wrong place. Fortunately, we were just around the corner. Once we made it to Il Posto we had a delicious lunch of grilled calamari, broccoli soup, vegetarian gnocchi, sausage pasta and a couple of tasty Italian desserts.
Arriving at around 7:30 we found the place to be completely full, with delicious smells engulfing us as we stepped off the frigid street and into the cosy restaurant. Fortunately, we had made reservations so after a short wait we were sat down and ready to go. The food at Pukka was made to share, which was perfect for us, so we samples a nice selection from their Winterlicious menu, including fried chicken and vegetable pakoras to start, followed by butter chicken and fish curry (with garlic naan on the side, of course), and rice pudding and mango mousse to finish. We are big fans of Indian food, and on such a cold night it was a real treat.
Here are a few more photos from our weekend.
