Amerigo's Cheese Fritters



Who doesn’t love cheese? Better yet, who doesn’t love fried cheese? As a child, mozzarella sticks were one of my favorite things to eat. Now, let me happily introduce to you an adult version of one of your childhood favorites, the cheese fritters at Amerigo Italian Restaurant. You can do a small order of four ($7) or a full order of six fritters ($9).

There’s a reason why this appetizer was featured in Bon Appétit. The cheese fritters are fried to perfection. With the first bite, you get the crunch of the crispy exterior and a bunch of cheesy flavors. That’s because there’s four different types of cheese inside: Cheddar, Swiss, Parmesan, and Mozzarella. The fritters are also gooey and the cheese stretches just the way you want a cheese stick to. They’re nicely melted! This is a heavy dish that’s rich in taste. Split them with a friend!

The cheese fritters come with marinara sauce and honey mustard. The marinara sauce makes for great dipping, but the honey mustard is the star — so sweet and smoky. I made sure that not one bit of it was left on the plate!

These cheese fritters are cheese sticks on drugs. Good drugs!
