Dish: Shrimp Polenta $14.95
I have been to Soyka in several occasions, I love its ambiance, I think that when I end up going there is usually only because of their industrial urban-ish decor. I don’t care that much for their food and the last time I brought my parents here, the food was not good, we had pizza and it was horrible.
But I decided to stop there the other day to write a post, enjoy a glass of wine and ordered the Shrimp Polenta. I always anticipate the worse when I order a dish with polenta because if they do not know how to prepare it (I grew up eating polenta by the way), then the dish ends up being a big disaster – but this dish was just perfect, the polenta reminded me of the one my grandma used to make, it felt like home. The shrimp were fresh with the crunch you expect at the first bite. The sauce tasted like a marinara vodka-type of sauce. Good dish.
The service was impeccable, quick, attentive, the server had a perfect timing for everything, from getting my drink quick as I sat down to filling my glass with water. I will definitely be back this time.
Warning: not a good video but at least some preview of Soyka’s ambiance – and the street leading to the restaurant which is my favorite part…
