Fresh Tagliatelle Carbonara - Dall'Italia Pasta Bar
Today we went to Dall'Italia, a pasta bar located in Temple Bar. The pasta is absolutely delicious and quite affordable. You can customise your pasta - choose the type of pasta, the sauce, and add your toppings. We went for tagliatelle with pesto and olives, and tagliatelle with four cheese sauce, bacon, and spinach. You can eat in or take away. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #dublinfood #instagood #food #pasta #yum #foodphotography #dublin #ireland #delicious #photography #foodie #foodporn #foodblogger #lovedublin #pastabar #templebar #templebardublin #dublintourism #italianfood #foodgasm #nom #nomnom #nomnomnom #🍝

Spaghetti Fatti a Mano - Bar Italia
好！久！沒！發！文！了！ 大概是這個月好朋友作祟，在那以前還以為自己對新工作新環境新作息都適應得很好，殊不知！好朋友一來搗亂之後每天都看小孩不順眼，動不動就想掐死她們（但我不行），只好偷偷在心裡殺她們一百萬次哈哈哈！ 當然我自己也是被打敗了千百次又振作起來，畢竟為了生活也只好忍一忍（菸～）！在這樣矛盾又複雜的心情反反覆覆，一天中最期待的莫過於下班，一個禮拜中最期待的莫過於週末，其次是腦公的休假，因為只有這些時刻才能呼吸新鮮空氣啊（嘆～） 這禮拜的小約會去了一間義大利餐廳，吃了世界好吃的墨魚麵，配料不管是魷魚或是淡菜都鮮甜到不行，還有松露野菇燉飯（咦？），完勝我在台灣煮的松露野菇燉飯（哈～）！但最最最讓我們驚艷的是野莓奶酪，直接壓倒我在歐洲最愛的開心果冰淇淋，堪稱我們人生中吃過最濃郁的奶酪（突然陷入昨天沒拍到奶酪晃動的懊悔中><） 今天os好多，過幾天再來心平氣和地分享我們萬惡的宵夜文好惹😂 #羚噹吃天下
Take spaghetti to the next level with a seafood inspired twist, this ludicrously tasty dish includes clams, mussels, prawns, squid, chilli flakes and cherry tomatoes for a Mediterranean feast.
