The secret sea food speciality in Napoli “Spicy Mussels soup”
Now when we talk about Naples we immediately think about Neapolitan pizza but I can tell you!!! we are not just pizza!!
Do you want to eat something very famous among us Neapolitans and not the usual spaghetti with clams sold in all restaurants for tourists?
I absolutely recommend this restaurant in the heart of Naples: A Figlia Do marenar Via Foria 180/182 Napoli Italy
The specialty of this restaurant?? Absolutely must taste it’s Mussels soup,it would be a saute made with mussels ,seafood and octopus seasoned with spicy oil. This dish is not very well known because in reality it is eaten during the Easter period, in this restaurant you can enjoy it all year!! it is a real Neapolitan delight trust me!!
Salvatore Cuomo was born in Naples, Italy, in 1972, son of an Italian father and Japanese mother.
Cuomo was first inspired by his father who also was an Italian Chef in Naples. He began at the young age of 11, where he trained himself in the kitchen and traveled frequently between Italy and Japan. He gradually learned how to blend the traditional Italian art of cooking with the Japanese art of perfection.
A few years later he traveled to Japan with his father who opened an Italian restaurant in Chiba in 1984. About those early years Salvatore told the press that it wasn't a good starting experience: "I didn’t like Japan at all, so after one year, I went back to Italy and spent 2–3 years studying at a culinary school. When I was 18, I returned to Japan after my father became terminally ill and I have been here ever since." Cuomo said that Italian Cuisine was just starting to get popular in those days. He and his two brothers decided that in order to succeed in the restaurant business in Japan they would have to understand the Japanese food mentality. They spent a couple of years researching the market before opening a new restaurant in Tokyo with what Cuomo calls "Original Neapolitan pizza."
Since that time, Cuomo has been credited with catapulting Neapolitan pizza to fame in Japan, and today in all Asia with over 100 restaurant.
