Sun, wine and lots of food
A three-hour drive, traffic, and lots of music in my ears: that’s the wake-up call for Friday, May 7 2021. For work reasons my family and I had to travel to Bergamo and, between a sudden attack of hunger and the exhaustion of the trip, we decided to stop for lunch in in Modena, which was on our way, and venture into its long but narrow alleys. Needless to say, we took a wrong turn about ten times making the longest scenic route of my life, but it was definitely a thrilling experience. Modena is a city characterized by a majestic charm, it is a place rich in art… but above all in flavors. What else to do but take advantage of this opportunity to delight in new culinary gems? So, on the advice of dear friends who love good taste, we decided to book a table at “Trattoria Da Omer“.
I don’t know how I could describe that little gem on the street other than “unique”. We spent a wonderful day thanks to the passion of the owner and the energy with which he lulled us towards the most intense sins of gluttony. Sun, wine and food: the trio that opens the doors of paradise.
Trattoria “Da Omer” stands out for the refined attention to detail, embellishing the preparations with enchanting colors and especially loving the taste for antiques with swanky saucers. But particularly for the goodness they serve: I haven’t tasted the pleasure of fried brains in a long time, not to mention a perfectly prepared garden salad, as well as a juicy cotechino “in jail” accompanied by indescribable mustards.
