Who serves the best in Rome? I wish I'd see this on more menus in Rome, can anyone suggest their favorite places to go for bacala?
Make sure you pronounce it with the accent on the last "a"
Filetto di baccala' fritto is a typical ROman dish, try it in largo dei Librai, as suggested above.
You could think of it as the Roman version of fish & chips... without the chips.
Yum! That sounds great. Thanks for teaching me something today!
Viki, baccala is dried salted cod that is soaked in water to reconstitute it before it's fried, it's definately an acquired taste( unless you grow up with it) but you must try it!
The first time I had Baccala the waiter told me that the dried fish was soaked in milk to sweeten the meat somewhat and make it less salty. Is that common practice or just a technique at that restaurant?
What is Bacala??
Baccala'=dried cod fish
When you are a dummy (roman colloquial)=baccala'!!!! Ciaooo Daniela
I just wanted to agree w/SoloRoma - the baccala at Giggetto is very good (as is their fried artichoke...& pasta all'amatriciana...I am very hungry right now!). It's very nice to sit outside there on favorable weather days too (go a bit early if you want an outdoor table).
I think I will eat very well on my next visit!
