One night after helping Mrs. Green M&M and Mr. HP Sauce move, Mr. M&P and I were ravenous. It was still early in the night so we decided to see if we could score a table at the ever so popular Parm. There was a bit of a wait but we were in no rush. So when we got seated, we kind of ordered with our eyes while our stomachs gurgled in hunger.
What I'd rather order every time is the calamari ($14) which was available that night. They have a sign up front that indicates when they have fresh calamari or not. These rings of squid are lightly battered and fried. They throw in some pieces of peppers too. I like how delicate they are. A squeeze of lemon is all it needs. But the restaurant throws in some sauces for good measure anyway.
The main course itself was a flattened piece of veal that was breaded and fried then covered in sauce and cheese. To my delightful surprise, there was also a this slice of eggplant on top of that veal parm. It was excellent. I really enjoyed it and almost ate the whole thing myself. But of course, I stopped myself from being too overindulgent.
