Day 23a: Adventures in Granita

We set off on a journey to Zambrone (named for the guy that drives the Zamboni) to see if we could find a seaside lunch place.  Zombrone, however, is ENTIRELY resorts and (beautiful) beaches, with some lunch shacks along the beach.  So we opted to bounce back to Tropea to the lunch spot from the day before for some tasty, tasty vittles.

Doppio, for reasons.

Insalada Tropea

Fileja Tropeana

We wandered a bit before picking up tickets for a Thursday adventure, and found a shop that sold… this…

Can you see it? It’s not blue…

Then it was off to Parghelia in search of their famous granita.  And we found it.  I started with pineapple, then moved on to India Fig, then finished my trio of deserts with a Tartufo Nero.

Cocoa powder on the outside, then Hazelnut gelato, then cherries and crushed pistachio in the center…

Then home for naps, more naps, and roasted chicken for dinner just after a previously mentioned OUTRAGEOUS SUNSET!!!
