Milan Food Spots – Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Thanks to my gorgeous friend Giorgia, my boyfriend (S) and I had a reason to fly to Milan last week. G celebrated her birthday with her friends and family at the Hollywood Club in the middle of the city. For me it’s been the first time to visit this beautiful city. And even though my wallet was almost stolen at our first metro ride, it was one of the most amazing trips in my life. Since S has been to Milan before, he was in charge of the program and where to go for food & drinks. And let me tell you, he did a pretty good job.

 

Juice Bar €€€

Even though this spot is pretty expensive, it’s so good. We went there for breakfast at our second day and it was a good start to explore the city. The juices are freshly made right before your eyes and taste wonderful. I went for a Matcha Latte, since it’s my favourite coffee replacement at the moment. I also got a chocolate cake, because why not eat cake in the morning? The Chia Pudding was really devine. Even went there another day just for the Chia stuff, so you know it must be good. A total yes from us considering the Juice Bar.

 Da Rita et Antonio €

Only 7,50€ for the best pizza in town? It’s a dream come true at “Da Rita et Antonio”. I would even say it’s better than my favourite pizza in New York. S joked about us having a typical date that night with pizza and a coke. Nothing more to say about this amazing place.

 

Giacomo Caffe €€

We went there three times actually, because it was so good. Here you can get the best espresso in town probably. We also went for the fruit salad, because it was the only thing we could kinda guess what it was on the Italian menu hahah. Last but not least, we got the best croissant ever! Seriously the best one I ever ate! The pudding inside tasted to die for. That’s the reason why we came back twice!

 

Chez Panin €€

Our first food spot for lunch was Chez Panin. I went for a salad with some chicken, parmesan cheese and cherry tomatoes. By the way chicken is “pollo” in Italian. The restaurant is so cute, I loved the interior and the staff was also super friendly. The food portion was a little small, but I was also very hungry from the flight and not eating much before on this day. The salad was very delicious though.  Yes to this place!

 

Bianco Latte €€

Really fresh and amazing tasting food is served at Bianco Latte. I went for the salad with avocados and gambas/ shrimps. The shrimps were so different from what I ate before, but so so good. The salad was 15€, but I would say that’s a good deal for Milan. S went for a classic burger with cheese for 18,50€. A little expensive if you ask me, but we were so hungry, we didn’t care much hahah. There’s also a cute shop in the restaurant, which you should check out. The staff was actually a bit unfriendly I would say and the place was really busy when we went there for a late lunch. Still the food tasted pretty good, so I can recommend this place though!

 

If you ever get the chance to go to Milan, I advice you to go there! It’s really a beautiful city and has so much to offer. I hope you enjoyed my little guide on food tipps & thank you so much for reading!

Top 5 Places for Food in New York City

As you all know (or can see on my Instagram feed) I’m a huge New York City lover. I’ve been there for about 4 weeks, which definitely isn’t enough for me and I want to go back as soon as I can. One reason why I love New York City so much is the food. It’s just pure food heaven. You can get anything you can think of, no matter if it’s Indian food or Mexican food, raw cookie dough, alcoholic ice cream or vegan burgers.

Here are my Top 5 Places!

5. by CHLOE $$

It’s on 185 Bleecker St, not far away from the Washington Square Park. By Chloe is a vegan burger restaurant and I just wanted to try it out because I heard so many good things about it. I went for the Guac Burger and some sweet potato fries and I never thought vegan things could taste this good. Also the location is so cute and if you can’t find a place to sit just go to the Washington Square Park, sit down and enjoy your meal without having to rush (wait is that even possible in New York City?).

4. Shake Shack $$

Here in Germany we only really have Mc Donalds and Burger King as a fast food chain, that’s why I wanted to try out another one. I know Shake Shack isn’t probably the healthiest place to go, but you at least should give it a try. Go for the cheese fries and a normal shack burger and you’re not going to be disappointed. Burger Heaven!

3. Ringolevio $$

Since a friend of mine lives in Brooklyn and basically loves all about it, we had to go for brunch there obviously. It was one of the best ideas ever, cause Ringolevio in the Humboldt St is seriously a jewel. I got waffles with blueberries, strawberries, bananas and also some scrambled egg and bacon. That mix is very odd for me as a European, nonetheless it tasted amazing. I would definitely recommend going there!

2. Joe’s Pizza $

The best pizza ever! And I’m serious! Whenever I’m like oh pizza would be good now, I think of Joe’s Pizza. I went there so often and didn’t even feel bad about it. The place itself looks a bit run-down, again for me as a European. But you shouldn’t worry about that because the food is super fresh and so delicious! There’s also a cute little park area right next to it to enjoy your slice. Overall one of my favourite places in whole New York City.

1. Magnolia Bakery $$

If you watched Sex and the City you probably heard of this place before. It became famous after being mentioned in one episode. The store in the West Village is the original one and it looks so cute. I think it’s safe to say that I can recommend everything. I would try the Banana Pudding first, you never experienced something like this before, believe me! Also a thing I’m thinking about so often. Also you can’t go wrong with the cupcakes or cheesecakes, they’re so good! Even the lemonade there tastes like heaven, that’s why this bakery is my number one place to go!

Hope you enjoyed the post and hopefully I could give you some tips.

Roma

Although I live in Germany and I’ve been to Italy a few times, I’ve never been to Rome. But last week I had the chance to go there over the weekend because I was invited to a launch of beautiful bags (more to come soon). Rome is such a breathtaking, historical city and it’s definitely not my first and last time there. The food and especially the coffee is amazing here. But a weekend just isn’t enough to enjoy all the different aspects Rome has to offer, I’d recommend like 4 – 5 days. Anyway here are some beautiful photos I took.
