Call Me Gaby
It’s a beautiful Thursday afternoon here in sunny Miami and my swim has left me so hungry and craving for some pizza. There are many Italian places here in the city but if there’s one place that stands out it’s Call Me Gaby which has a beautiful outdoor terrace.
The ambience was so nice as Italian classical music played in the background, the smell of the garden was so fresh and most importantly you could hear the guests having a great time. The service staff was so pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu which is always a sign of a properly run establishment.
Alas, I’ve been wanting to come here in my previous first 2 visits but never had the chance but now we are here and ready to eat ☺
I started with an iced tea to compliment the anti pasti that we ordered which was their Burrata Pugliese served with arugula, cherry tomatoes and dressed with Balsamic Vinegar from Modena. Of course, we upgraded the dish with some “Speck” which is a smoked prosciutto which was my favorite cured meat when I was still based in Italy. This dish was simple, beautiful and just plain perfect. The burrata was so rich and fresh and the speck complimented the dish well.
Now it’s time for some “Pinsa” which is a traditional roman technique of working the dough by hand and proofing for 72 hours. The result of this process is a lighter crust which is easier to digest due mainly as well to the components which are wheat, soy and rice flour with more water and less salt. It also comes out oval shaped, more like a “flat bread” than the common round pizza. Oddly enough even though I was based in Italy for close to 2 years before, I actually never had pinsa yet and that was about to change.
Now almost completely full and so happy to have been able to finally come here and have lunch I was starting to think of this article and what to write when the Chef gave us a complimentary Homemade molten cake for dessert. The cake had a perfect crunchy outer crust and rich velvety core and the vanilla gelato completed the trifecta of flavors.
This was a perfect ending to our afternoon and meal, Call Me Gaby thank you for being open and serving fantastic food. I will be back for more during my nest visit for sure…
