Luncheon — Thursday, August 30 at 12:30 pm

Date and Time:  August 30, 12:30 pm

Place:  SDS

Address:  Talcahuano 475

Price:  400 pesos (includes tip)
Tucked away up a flight of stairs (there is an elevator) with a doorway that has only the address -475 – and no signage is one of Michael’s favorite Italian restaurants in the city. The restaurant is conveniently located in Tribunales just around the corner from the main courthouse and two blocks from the Colon theater.  The Tribunales stop on the Subte line D is a block and a half away.
Our  planned menu will include Salvatore’s stuffed fried olives as an appetizer – these will be served family style with four per person being allocated. There will be three choices of pasta to include Michael’s favorite lasagna and two other pasta specialties of the chef. For dessert we can choose tiramisu OR coffee — and of course wine will be included. Everything is homemade on the premises and includes the fresh bread and cheesy eggplant topping that alone is worth a visit.

Cost:   350 pesos – includes a non-alcoholic beverage and tip
RSVP to Michael Weldon to secure a place

This month we are heading to San Cristobal to enjoy a Japanese lunch. The location also features a Japanese market where you can buy almost any Japanese culinary items so be sure to bring your shopping bag!
 
The location is probably a bit off the grid for most newcomers but is easily accessible from the subte network. The restaurant is about 4 blocks away from Humberto 1° station on the H line and only 2 blocks away from the Pichincha station on the E line. For those more familiar with the bus routes, both the 53 and 126 stop a half block away and the 95 stops 2 blocks away.
 
The next information and two images are courtesy of  www.saltshaker.net.
Main courses and noodle dishes come with the option of just the dish, or as a “set”. The latter is a great option as a full meal. The sets come with a bowl of miso soup, a choice of three rices (white, yakimeshi – which is more or less Japanese fried rice, or onigiri – which are the seasoned and stuffed triangular rice balls), plus a salad, pickles, and a small side dish.
Below is the spicy ramen, which comes as a set with a rich chicken broth spiked with several types of picante, and a mix of chicken and chashu pork, plus a small bowl of extra chashu on the side to either eat solo or add into the ramen. One of the best spicy ramens  in town. (290 pesos)

The “extra” chashu ramen below is packed with a good amount of the pork, plus a bowl of more on the side, and a deep, murky pork broth. Very, very good, and certainly up there among the better ramens around. (310 pesos)

There is an extensive menu which includes several hot plates, udon dishes and special items. The full menu with pictures is included as attachments below. Make sure you check out the EBI UDON and the special SANMA TEISHOKU.  All of the set dishes include a non-alcoholic beverage as well as the items shown in the pictures.
Any appetizers, alcoholic beverage or dessert will be at your own additional cost.
 

Monthly Luncheon — Cucina Italiano — 12:30 Thursday, March 22

Date: Thursday, March 22, 2018

Time: 12:30 pm

Place: SDS – Cucina Italiano – Talcahuano 475, 1er piso

Cost:  350 pesos

Please RSVP to 

mweldon213@yahoo.com

Phone   4815-4660

Tucked away on Talcahuano, behind the main court houses, is a little spot on the first floor with absolutely no signage. Since we dined there in August of 2017 it has been “discovered”. The clientele currently are the legal professionals from the neighborhood but it is now always full! The genius behind the food may be familiar to some of you from a previous spot where he got rave reviews as the head chef. Now, Salvatore has brought his two brothers from Italy to help out with the new venture. Everything is made on the premises or brought here from Italy!

The space itself is fairly small but does have a private room that can accommodate 20 people, that is where we will be having lunch. An early RSVP is recommended. Please note the time -12:30- this will allow us to get our orders in before the place fills up.

The menu will include pasta, of course, and other standard Italian choices. The 350 peso price includes your main course, dessert or coffee (I, as always, will be ordering the home-made Tiramisu) and beverage choice – wine or water, plus the tip.

Monthly Luncheon — Dress up to go to the Centro Naval on July 27, Thursday

RSVP to mweldon213@yahoo.com

Date: Thursday, July 27, 2017
Time: 12:30 pm
Place: Centro Naval – corner of Cordoba and Florida, 6th floor
Cost:  220 or 250 pesos (see below)

This month we will try a relative newcomer, a 135 year old club that was established in May of 1882. This magnificent example of “belle epoque” architecture sits on the corner of Cordoba and Florida and is, of course, Centro Naval – the home of the Naval Officers Club.

The elegant dining room on the 6th floor offers several options. The daily executive menu offers a main course that changes daily, dessert, coffee and beverage (water, soft drink or wine). There is another special which adds an appetizer and more main course choices from the a la carte menu. Pricing with tip for the first choice will be 220 pesos, the second choice is 250 pesos. The dessert choices are served from a cart that includes flan, budin de pan, fresh fruit and a few other options. Additional glasses of wine can be purchased for a reasonable 30 pesos.
Mandatory dress for this lunch will be SMART. The club has a dress code that does not allow shorts, denim, tee shirts, casual footwear, etc. On a recent visit where there were about 40 people dining, only four were not wearing jackets!
