The hearty eater

The hearty eater

[February, 2012] This is a restaurant called Victory in Monza, north Italy.

The dish is the grilled vegetable, which is nice and simple and I order almost every time when I eat seafood as the main dish.

And the behind that is the old woman who eats heartily.

She was on her own in her quite formal suit.

When I took the table, she was already there and I did not notice what sort of antipasto she took, but I saw that she ate primo with pasta and secondo with some meat dish.

Although that is the proper way of eating Italian meal, nowadays when I have meals with young people, they take either primo or secondo, so I was quite surprised and impressed by this old woman, who is surely more than 70.

She did not take dolce and finished off with caffe.
