Spaghetti Eddie's, Glendora


Category :

BFF had mentioned Spaghetti Eddie's in Glendora as a great neighborhood Italian restaurant, so when the opportunity presented itself, I went and tried it with Mr. and Mrs. Clark Kent, along with some new friends.
Spaghetti Eddie is located in a strip mall at the corner of two of Glendora's busiest streets. The exterior is unassuming, while the interior is quaint and homey.

We ordered garlic puffs to start, which were essentially golden balls of dough bathed in garlicky olive oil, roasted garlic, spices and garnished with Italian parsley. Garlic bread lovers, rejoice! This takes garlic bread up another notch. The soft, chewy, freshly-baked bread, combined with the pungent garlic was just out of this world. 

Hubbs ordered the Linguine with Clam Sauce, al dente linguine tossed with baby clams, olive oil, white wine, herbs and garlic. I don't remember what it tasted like, but it is pictured below:

I ordered the special of the day, the Pork Osso Bucco, a huge pork shank served with pancetta and jus over gemelli pasta, accompanied by roasted vegetables. From what I remember, I loved the intense flavor of the jus - the pancetta added another layer of porky goodness. However, I felt that the pork shank should have been braised a little longer, some parts were a little tougher to eat.

Overall, a great experience, and I would go back to try more savory dishes off the extensive menu, or maybe I'll just get more garlic puffs.
