Da Rosa, a delicatessen/tapas bar in the lively Latin Quarter, is a perfect place for sipping wine and nibbling on small plates. Signature items are cured hams from Spain, Italy, and Portugal, but other dishes on the menu – foie gras, gazpacho, risotto – are also alluring. With a bottle of wine, parfait!
Started the evening with a glass of Porquerolles Domaine de I’ile rosé (€5.50).
Cheese, on the house (didn’t see this on other tables…were we extra lucky that day?)
Salade de Printemps (€6), a simple salad of sucrine lettuce drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Saucisson embossé iberico “bellota” (€6). Pure Iberian pork from Spain, self-explanatory.
The selection of hams is sliced right here in the house.
A few more glasses…
We then tried an Italian ham but I actually don’t exactly remember which one on the menu it was…perhaps jambom Culatello di Zibello (€11), cured for 15 months? Each translucent slice was bursting with flavor, delicious on its own or with a piece of bread.
Burrata (€18), unpasteurized cow milk cheese. Creamy, especially delicious with the accompanying pesto and olives.
Risotta (€19) with carnaroli rice, Iberian bellota ham and parmesan cheese. Not too shabby, not especially memorable.
A charming evening.
