The Ricardo Serves Vitello Tonnato

I don’t know how many of you guys know what is Vitello Tonnato, those of you who know what it is will really appreciate this post 😛

I got to know about this dish at Roberto’s restaurant in Geneva while I was on vacation a couple of years back. It’s a great dish, and it’s a difficult dish to accept if you’re not OK with trying out new things.

Vitello tonnato: is a veal carpaccio, only with thicker slices, and topped with creamy tuna sauce.

I know the creamy tuna on a slice of veal doesn’t sound appetizing, but it’s great, I love this dish and it is very hard to find in Kuwait. While we were at the Ricardo this past weekend (which is a great restaurant. I regret not taking the camera with me) I found this dish on the menu and had to order it. It was very good, not as good as the one at Roberto’s but close enough. Aldente restaurant in Movenpick also serves this dish but it’s nothing like the real thing.

    Is this a starter like carpaccio or a main dish?

  5. Ansam says:

    I never tried that dish! Sounds interesting and I am very tempted to try it. Its worth mentioning that Ricardo’s mushroom soup is SO GOOD!

    Khalid The ricardo would be a good start 🙂

    Miznah I sure did, and it tasted good. It’s not as good as the ones I tried europe, but it’s good.

    M7 sawly ily khobry khobrik taly enroo7 😛

    Ahmad yeah it’s a starter, but a bit heavier than your normal carpaccio. See it tasted good at the ricardo, but ofcourse it tastes much better at roberto’s. Kinda like how Entricote in Kuwait tastes compared to the one in geneva.. you know? but we still go to the one in Kuwait.. it’s kinda like that.

    Ansam Agreed! their mushroom soup is amazing!

    ooooh 7asafa:( i always go to roberto, but never noticed this dish. maybe cause i indulge my self with the parmesan cheese with oil & vinegar…. and that is enough for me to start with.
