The Amelioration of a'Roma Dinings

Image
I remember this establishment very fondly and with good reason. I first debuted into the blogging scene back in May 2016, to the surprise and interest of many in the community. Who was this middle-aged scoundrel of a gentleman gallivanting about the food scene as if he owned the place Did I not, well it felt like I did? A chance meeting with the beautiful and passionate Angeline Ong, who is the owner of this blog and of which I am an Associate Writer and Editor, led me into the fascinating world of Food Blogging. I visited a'Roma Dinings as my 18th foray in that same year, the older write-up of which is still accessible here. And like me and this blog, a'Roma Dinings has certainly matured well as a business and as an establishment offering authentic Italian fare and more. Step inside with me dear reader, and allow me to unfetter your inhibitions about this world famous cuisine.
