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!
