First Visit: LaRosa

This weekend just came up to see if there was a tree on my house but otherwise it was my shortest weekend on the island in a year. All by myself I was going to take the back road to Rockport when my grumbling stomach matched up with my view of LaRosa’s at the light. Once I figured out to turn into as if going to the State Pier I was in for an early lunch.

A search of Joey’s posts confirms it was Chef Terry who took my order of Eggplant Parmigiana in a sub roll. Terry got the TV running so I could check out the tsunami bearing down on Hawaii. How did we ever live without CNN? Seems like they are 24/7 “Run Away! Run Away!” type stories. Only a few minutes later Terry got me the goods so I was left wondering about Hawaii.

Now I would insert an up close and personal photo here but I got distracted. Thatcher Road was blocked so I couldn’t eat it while viewing the twin lighthouses. Circled back and it wasn’t until T-Wharf that I could take a bite. By that time I was too hungry for photos.

Even after the long drive the edges had a nice crispy coating and the whole thing was scrumptious. Made it to the house and fortunately not a shingle missing. Had to take an afternoon nap since I ate the whole sub. Next week I am trying the Seafood Risotto and the Shrimp Mediterranean. With the family in tow I will be able to split one so I won’t have to take that afternoon nap. I hear the mushroom soup is good too.
