Bla Kongo

Bla Kongo is one of the constantly popular places to eat in Rome. There is handmade jewellery on sale and travel and cook books for guests to peruse at their leisure as they wait to be seated. Bla Kongo is perfect for an uncomplicated light meal if you’re trying to escape the hungry crowds at the nearby Galleria Borghese or if you’re exploring the surrounding shopping area and are looking for a charming, yet still secluded spot full of locals. Its cuisine has a distinct Scandinavian influence, with some touches of Indian and Italian. The result is an often watermouthering mix of tastes, with the undisputable star being the ‘Bla Kongo potato’, an oddly violet potato served in combination with various ingredients, including creamy cheeses, tuna, yogurt or cherry tomatoes.
