We do love to travel and eat. Somehow we manage to always found the hidden gems that delight our palate.This dish of Ink Pasta with Shrimps, Tomatoes and Garlic is just one of those gems. We were in Krakow, Poland, and on a side street of the old town, down this alley stood this gorgeous patio restaurant. Relaxing, just what we needed it. And if you are a garlic lover, you will be in heaven with this dish.
I selected pasta, which is not me when eating out. Something called me to it and I am glad I went. Of course the chef would not part himself with the recipe so I have been having so much fun replicating it and I believe I finally have it as to transport me to Krakow with each bites.
