Joke of the week: What do you call a fake noodle? *Answer is below
By Charlie Boyle, Brayden Brown, Pepper Toft and Silas Weber
On Wednesday, January 29th, the Roving learners went to an Italian farm to table restaurant. We got to try some of the food. The restaurant’s name is L’Oca d’Oro. Sundays they are open at 4pm to 9pm, Mondays through Wednesdays they are open at 5pm to 9pm, Thursdays through Fridays are open at 5pm to 10pm and Saturdays are open 4pm to 10pm.
When we got there, we took a tour with the owner, Adam Orman. Adam said when you walk in you are greeted by a host or hostess and they ask how may I help you and how many people are in your group. You then tell them how many. Then they put the information in a tablet and then they say please follow me to the table that you will sit at.
After you sit down, your waitress or waiter comes up and says hi, then introduces themselves. They also say what would you like to drink. Then you tell them what you want to drink. They write it down so they don’t forget, they take it to the kitchen and then the bartender makes it. The waiter (waitress) then brings out your drink. Then they ask what would you like to eat. You tell them what you want, for example Straciatella (which is a type of cheese). They go in the kitchen and tell someone standing on a clear rubber mat of to the side your order. They put the order on a tablet to print on a check. They yell fire and then the order. The cooks make the order. The cooks have a grill with a loud exhaust fan that pulls the smoke out of the building.
They have walk-in refrigerator. They keep food in there like, cheese, ice cream and even a pig's head. The pigs ears were frozen in an upright position. There is another room that the cooks use to make ingredients that they can’t make in the kitchen because of the lack of space. When your done eating you ask for the check and you pay how much money it is plus tax and tip. If you don’t tip, you are being a jerk. You are being a jerk because your not giving any money to the waiter or waitress.
We also got to smell some of the spices. We got to eat some Straciatella, two types of chocolate and four types of nuts. One of the chocolates was dark chocolate and the other was milk chocolate. The four types of nuts we ate was hazel nut, cashews, peanuts and pistachios. My favorite thing about the restaurant was that it was a farm to table restaurant. A farm to table restaurant is a restaurant that gets their produce from local farms. You can go there with your family for dinner, drinks and dessert. It is a very nice place to go. When your eating your food, the owner sometimes works there and you might see him. I love L’Oca d’Oro.
