So we were told that the venue had in house catering. What actually happened was that they ordered food in for us. It was nice of them to do that because it meant that we didn’t have to go and find anything, but this meant our choice was limited. We had food from a place called Oregano. Supposedly the best place for food in Coventry. It was basically a take away pizza joint. I decided, perhaps to avoid having a pizza a lot on this tour I would opt for one of the pasta options. I went for Spaghetti al Carbonara, which instead of coming with bacon or pancetta, came with sausage. I thought it would be worth trying.
The food appeared about 30 minutes before we were due to go on stage, so I had a few mouthfulls. The pasta was al dente, which was good. The sausage gave it a funny flavour and it looked like a regular sausage just sliced up, fried and chucked in. No chorizo I can tell you that. The sauce was creamy but it needed a lot more garlic and black pepper. There was a faint taste of cheese but I doubt it was parmesan.
The one good thing about it was when I came off stage and had some more it hadn’t congealed or dried up.
The pizzas looked good, but if this is the best place in Coventry well…
