The drunken mermaid

At our last stop, Favignama, for the first time ever, I found a bar with my name on it…
Then in Marsala, home of the famous aperitif and dessert wines, I found another: la sirena ubriaca : the drunken mermaid. Situated in via Garibaldi in the centro storica of Marsala, this lively bar serves wine without a menu- the very knowledgeable Angela was able to make the various members of the gang happy with her choice of wines, indeed she suggested a Nero D’Avola that both John and I enjoyed.  

On the basis of her wine choices, we took her recommendation for a restaurant who could do with someone as friendly as Angela on their waiting staff. Our waitress at il mare colore del vino, who I suspect was also the owner, was quite fierce and not very flexible to the requests for this and not that by our vegetarian contingent. My bistecca in Marsala was delicious, though my salad was a let down. Great vegetables in Sicily, crap salads. Bizarre.

Tomorrow a Marsala tasting tour- but you’ll have to read the next copy of indulge magazine out in September to find out about it! A piu tardi!
