Soldier: I just got back from war, all that marching and conquering… so exhausting! What’s for lunch?
Soldier: Nothing! I am famished! Every time we hail Caesar, I think of salad. Surely you made something…
Wife: What do you think this is? Palace of Cleopatra? We are eating out.
Soldier: Fine! I’ll get my sandals.
You could expect these kind of conversations in the homes of Ancient Rome. Most homes in ancient Rome did not have proper kitchens. Which is why the soldier’s wife responded with sarcasm. But they could always eat out. The couple would have many eating options in that amazing city. Bars, restaurants and bakeries were all over the city. They could also order the food for take out. You could expect a lot of things on the menu, from olives, to sea food, bread of course..they also cut meat into small cubes which they roasted and this was very popular among them. Just knowing that the Romans were into fast food makes me feel closer them.
