"...and the Gamberi Fra Diavolo tastes like bird droppings"

I was looking at an online menu for a little Italian restaurant in Whitefish, Montana called Mambo Italiano, and something struck me as odd. Next to a few items on the menu is a little symbol that looks like a red sprig of something. At the top of the page, I read that the sprig represents Mambo Recommendations.

So I'm wondering, if Mambo makes every item on the menu, why do they only recommend a few? Do they not care about the other dishes? What happens when a customer asks about the Sun Dried Tomato Penne, or the Linguini Alla Carbonara? "Oh no, sir, we don't recommend that one at all, it's disgusting."

To quote: "I was looking at an online menu for a little Italian restaurant in Whitefish, Montana called Mambo Italiano, and something struck me as odd." Stan, are you planning on ordering out? The Pappa Biagio Bolognese is going to be a little cool by the time it gets to you. :)

I was actually remembering the time I took the train to Whitefish, stayed in the area for a few days, and explored Glacier National Park. At Mambo Italiano, I ordered the Fettuccine Alla Lulubella, and liked it so much that I ordered a double portion to go, for the train ride home.

And yes, it was cold when I got here, because of the small cooler I brought :)
