Grrreat Meal, Value, Ambience

Angelina Cafe is a charming restaurant in the Lower East Side. The cuisine is Mediterranean - North African and the Chef/Owner Rafik, who is from Tunisia, adds a Tunisian flare. There is a pleasantly calming ambience that fills the air as fresh nutella banana crepes and peppercorn shrimp whiz by. Here you can get a wonderful meal for a great price.

{Arugula Salad}

As chatter and laughter filled the air I enjoyed an Arugula salad. Goat cheese, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, julienne carrots, and slithers of orange flavored toasted almonds rest on top of a large bed of arugula with your choice of dressing. I like to get the Basil and Balsamic and mix them. Together they add the perfect amount of creamy, sweet and tart flavors to the spicy arugula.

As an entree, I decided to go with the special for the night, Filet of sole stuffed with spinach and oysters in a lobster cream sauce. It came with a side of potatoes and julienned zucchini. It was a dish of dualities filling but delicate, creamy yet light and under $20 bucks. A special treat with incredible texture and hearty flavors that represented the change in seasons perfectly.

{Chicken Pasta}

My friend ordered the Chicken Pasta special. Of course, I had to try it, ya know in the name of research and it was ummm... ummmm.. good. The juicy chicken breasts soaked up the spicy tomato and shitake mushroom flavors oh so well.

{Hazelnut Mousse Cake}

For dessert a hazelnut chocolate mousse cake with a hazelnut and brown sugar crust. I loved the combination of flavors. It tasted just like nutella.

If you're looking for a relaxing spot to have a satisfying meal that won't eat a hole in your pocket then you should check out Angelina Cafe.
