Ever since moving to Southie, a number of people have recommended that I give Amrheins Restaurant a try. With so many glowing recommendations and it being just a short walk from our new place, it was an easy decision to treat our friends to dinner there.
The “mood lighting” in Amrheins was quite dark, so my photos didn’t turn out great– I even had to use a flash. Boo! 😡 But, the food was delicious, so it totally made up for it.
I ordered a glass of Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc (one of my favs!) before dinner to enjoy with my meal. (For some reason, I never snapped a photo?) And for my entree, I ordered the Pumpkin Chicken Risotto, which was absolutely amazing! It was easily one of the best risottos I have ever tasted!
It was creamy chicken risotto with cashews, dried cranberries, caramelized onions, and baby spinach baked inside a pumpkin and topped with a blend of melted cheese. HOLY YUM!
It had strong flavors of maple and cinnamon, which were a wonderful compliment to the creamy risotto and blend of cheeses.
I could not stop eating this meal! I actually ate so much, I feel sick now. I’m such a 5-year-old when I get around incredibly delicious foods. I eat until I have a bellyache. 😳
I still can’t believe my dinner was served in a pumpkin!
Amrheins made a great first impression! I’m sure I’ll visit again soon!
I’m exhausted from the day! Good night!!!!
