Tripe porn (trippa alla napoletana)

neapolitan tripe

Just had to share this photo that I snapped earlier today at Tony’s.

My good friend and client Tony always makes classic Italian dishes that he reserves for friends who come into eat at his swank restaurant (the Houston oil moguls’ official commissary).

Today it was classic trippa alla napoletana, Neapolitan-style, slow-cooked tripe with potatoes and chili flakes.

Man, it was good…

“Why don’t you put this on the menu?” I asked Tony. “It’s delicious.”

“It just doesn’t sell,” he said.

Go figure!

When you visit Tony’s, be sure to ask him what he’s got going on in the kitchen that’s not on the menu.

Buon appetito, yall!
