Artisan Focacceria

Play-Doh and all of its doughy properties. Sharing similar characteristics to the flour, oil, salt, sugar and water mixture of a pre-ovened focaccia. The craftsmen at this establishment have a special penchant for the Italian baked bread. And I thought I was a master scalper with the Hasbro’s suitable for ages over 3 product. So too the focaccia is suitable for young and old. Perhaps from over excitement that having arrived at the front doors and managing to score a seat, the real reason for eating here was forgotten… the bread. Instead, eyes were as big as the plate which the soft, airy, fluffy omelette of rocket, ricotta and mozzarella rested upon. Experts at something else… I can’t believe they lied through store name. I hate when they do that. Learning times tables, not as exciting, the croissant with prosciutto and provolone. A rich, buttery, smoky and salty combination that perhaps is a little too heavy for the light option I was seeking. Whilst the obsession with Artisan Focacceria isn’t as solid as the one for the distinct scent of non-toxic children’s toy, a return trip is a must for the signature product.
