I’ve got a guilty pleasure. I like Sofia’s… and after an absence that stretches as far back as seventh September two thousand and four, I’d forgotten how enjoyable the place was. It won’t get Michelin Star recognition but if they did for value Sofia’s would surely get three. So it’s a little daggy, the wooden tables and chairs well worn and has experienced the health scare that a Vietnamese bakery knows all too well. But how could you not smile when they bring out the platter of crumbed fried calamari that glistens and has more rings than a Zamels store. Being Italian there’s the usual Western selection of pastas and pizzas with toppings that are more than generous. Then there’s dessert, where gelato is served like they are forever indebted to you in these disproportionately small stainless steal sundae bowls. This guilty pleasure is gonna take another 5 years and 145 days to work off the weight.
