Pork Chops and Vinegar Peppers at the Venetian

We went to the Venetian Restaurant in East Weymouth for the third time in the past three weeks, and I finally got to order the pork chops with fried vinegar peppers. It was excellent--the pork chops were smothered in tangy balsamic vinegar, and there was a good amount of meat on each of the two chops. The vinegar peppers were browned just right, and the side of pasta that came with it had an excellent red sauce.
The price for this? About $17, give or take a buck. Well worth it, in my opinion...
I thought I'd add to this post, instead of creating a new one. Finally made it to the Venetian last Saturday and based on the raves here, I did try the pork chops. They were fantastic. Two huge, 1" thick chops, chargrilled to pink perfection, smothered with delicious vinegar peppers. The vinegar had marinated into the chops too, so it all had a wonderful tangy flavor.
The side of pasta was perfect as well. Not mushy at all, with a very nice red sauce, not the overly sugary stuff you can sometimes get.
My friend had the Carbonara special, which was also quite tasty. Apps and dessert were very good as well. If you like grapenut pudding, they have a delicious homemade version here.
This is one of my favorite go-to spots for cheap, really good food. Not fancy, but always enjoyable. Take home a quart of their sauce. Your friends will think it's home made. Pizza's not bad either. Enjoy!
