Amano Bistro

We've probably driven by this little Amano Bistro place on 16th St. and Baseline hundreds of times since we moved to the West side and have never stopped to try it.

Last night, we decided try it out. It was really good. Fantastic, even. (And that says a lot coming from me, Ms. Neutral). Unfortunately, I got so excited when the food came that we were almost done with dinner before it occurred to me that I should've taken pictures of the food. Boo.

We ordered:
  • Seared provolone with spinach and red peppers. (I defy you to tell me that grilled cheese - which is basically what seared provolone is - isn't delish).
  • Margherita pizza. (Classic yummy).
  • Penne with sausage, mushrooms, and sun dried tomato pesto. (I actually liked the sausage. I'm usually pretty picky about sausage).
  • Balsamic strawberries with vanilla bean ice cream. (Mmmm . . . I'd go there again and just get this dessert).

It was a nice little date place. We're trying to eat out less to (a) save money and (b) be less fatty, but we'll definitely go back. It seemed like an Aunt Kris type of place, for whenever she visits Phoenix next time. :)
