Edible Obsessions | Brunch at Ask for Luigi !!!!

Ask for Luigi's amazing Banana Bread with Fresh Whipped Butter drizzled with Caramel Sauce!
Hey Dolls!

Yesterday, I finally got to dine at the much talked about Ask for Luigi restaurant! I went in for their Brunch {my favourite meal of the day!} and it was a meal that I will remember for years to come. 

Ask for Luigi is in Rail Town area of Vancouver, a sort of isolated on its own restaurant. It is a small space, but that is what makes it so cozy, welcoming and charming. From the hand painted gold Ask for Luigi across the windows to the open kitchen concept, it is the little details that make this restaurant stand apart from others. The entire time I was in the restaurant, I was captivated by one of the chefs rolling out pasta! It was so cool how thin and long he got the pasta dough! 

To start, I had their house made Banana Bread with Fresh Whipped Butter drizzled with Caramel Sauce. Oh My GOSH! I have no words to express how delicious Ask for Luigi's Banana Bread is! The outer parts were crispy while the middle was moist. Dipping the warm banana bread into the salty creamy whipped butter with caramel sauce is a bite that will keep me returning to Ask for Luigi time after time. 

Along with my Brunch, I had a glass of Orange Juice. It was fresh squeezed which is always a plus! Means they are wanting to give their diners only the best! 

The Mind Blowing Pappardelle alla Bolognese & Fried Egg
I had the Pappardelle alla Bolognese & Fried Egg as my main course. They give me a sunny side up egg, so I broke the yolk to have it coat all of the pasta in creamy goodness! This has to be hands down the best Pappardelle alla Bolognese I have had! The pasta was perfectly al dente and the meat was super juicy. They added a little bit of red chilli flakes to the sauce which made the flavour bolder! I was so sad when I was nearing the end of my plate of pasta :( I kind of just wanted to scream NOOOOOO!!! I NEED MOREEEE! 

The Tagliatelle alla Carbonara & Poached Egg. It was great, but not as mind blowing as the Pappardelle
My friend had the Tagliatelle alla Carbonara & Poached Egg as his main. The pasta was again cooked perfectly al dente because pasta is what Luigi does! The sauce was a traditional creamy egg parmesan sauce with bacon bits. We both agreed it fell a bit flat in flavour as it just did not pack a good wow factor. So if you are thinking between the Pappardelle or the Tagliatelle --> Pick the Pappardelle as it is mind blowingly amazing!! 

I hope to return to Luigi's very soon!!! I also promise to take far more pictures such as the charming hand painted gold letting across the windows. I was just really focused on eating! And when I was done, I was happily full and just needed to savour that feeling! 

Let me know what your favourite dish is from Ask for Luigi and what I should try next!
