September 18, 2015

Junior Food Critic Eliza Olander

[Written by 12 year old Eliza Olander...with a little help from Uncle Tony]

Venue: Rustico, Flatt’s Village

Appetizer: Bruschetta; chunky tomatoes, olives, capers and fresh basil, served on toasted homemade bread, $9.

The bread was crunchy on the outside but still soft. I like that the tomatoes were fresh and the bread was tasty.

Drink: Shirley Temple, $4

First impressions:
It’s quite modern and family-friendly but it’s also quite casual.

Service: The waiters are kind and not too fussy.

Main course: Pizza margherita, $14, with black olives and onions as extra toppings, at $1 each.

The onions were sweet which I completely love, and the pizza it has basil on it too — it was yummy. The crust wasn’t too thin, just how I like it, nice and crunchy.

Dessert: Homemade panna cotta with vanilla cream and fresh Berries, $9.

It’s very creamy. Raspberries sometimes they can be a little sour but this is this perfect combination of tart and sweet. Panna cotta is one of my favourite deserts — I would say this is the best part of the meal.

Overall experience: I enjoyed it — it was a nice atmosphere. It’s a lovely location, right by the sea. The sun was out and it was warm and lovely. I love Flatts Village because it’s a very colourful, busy area.

    That Shirley Temple was very expensive at $4
    They are only $1:75 at Pompano Beach club
    It is only soda water with a little coloring
