Filenas – PaniniPosted: July 30, 2014
The sun in the sky.
Clouds drifting past.
I headed into Filenas.
Now, Filenas café caters to a particular crowd of people. Let’s say it’s clientele is quite elderly.
Because it is.
I wasn’t expecting to find anything particularly exciting when I went to order, but it was a beautiful sunny day and I think that affected my optimism.
I spotted, at the bottom of the menu, this Bacon, Pesto and Feta Panini in amongst the bacon and cheese rolls and ham salads.
And I thought to myself ‘Hmm, that sounds rather exotic, I think I’ll try one of those.”
And so I did.
As I noted on the illustration, I really do love Pesto. It has to be one of my all time favourite things to with Garlic, Basil and Pine Nuts. It adds a cool, mediterranean twist to salads and sandwiches. Mmmm, Oh for a slice of Bruschetta with a little chopped tomato and pesto. Delicious!
For me, though, this sandwich combination (Bacon, Feta and Pesto) didn’t quite work out.
Still, I had the sunshine and a pretty drawing out of it; and a reminder about Pesto.
