Alma Latina – Torino – Italy (Go For The City, Not For The Food)

When you go visit a new city you want to try the local food, or you should hopefully have this desire!

I had it. I really wanted to try Piemontese food but for some reason we ended up at a Mexican fusion restaurant called Alma Latina!

We regretted it as soon as we saw that our enchilada was madly deep-fried!

I ordered my usual Mexican tortilla wrap and I was actually happy as a baby when I saw the little sauces that came with it and that I could assemble it myself!

My friend was braver than me and she ordered something cooked into cocoa powder and spiced in a very particular way. It was nice but I’m not sure I would order it twice. It came with banana chips and as I hate banana maybe I’m a bit biased on this point too.

I been amazed by the city and my disappointment the Mexican place honestly didn’t last long so the real advice this time is to go and visit Turin – it doesn’t really matter what you will eat in the end.
