quesadilla form. The menu suggested nixing the bacon and chicken and adding black beans for a vegetarian option, if so desired. Carlos split the quesadilla onto two plates and served it with quarter portions of the remaining four salads: Incan Quinoa ($5.99 for half portion), Farfalle Pasta ($4.99 for half portion), Mango and Black Bean ($5.99 for half portion), and Black Nile Barley Tabbouleh ($5.99 for half portion). Surprisingly, each salad was bursting with distinct flavor— from the bright lemony vinaigrette on the barley salad, the tangy tomatillo-herb dressing on the quinoa salad, to the garlic, cilantro, caramelized onion and dried cranberries in the farfalle pasta salad. Despite our hearty lunch, we still had room for dessert. We ordered the last of the Mexican wedding cookies— they were buttery and light with a hint of almond and a dusting of powdered sugar. Nourishing and made-from-scratch, it is clear that Colomba’s culinary talent blends classical training with family tradition. For anyone looking for truly artisanal dishes with a Latin American flair, look no further than this cozy lunch spot. If not just for the food, than also for Carlos’ warm hospitality and superb service! Come early as specials run out quickly.
Enjoy the new Regal Princess’ first 7-night Caribbean voyage.
