Hey Guys! As some of you know I went to Milan for my birthday! If I need to make a summary about this trip it would be sunny, shoppy and tasty!
In this blogpost I’ll recommend some places we went to. Without good food, a holiday isn’t complete, so lets get started!
Everyone loves a good smoothie right?
Well, in case you’d love to sit down for a minute after a walk or you just want to have a cosy evening: BAR MALPIGHI!
It’s mostly a local bar, since it’s not in the tourist area. You can enjoy cocktails, smoothies, beers, … Anything you like! And like in any Italian bar you’ll get some potato chips and olives with it.
On top of that the bartender was really friendly and quite funny. We didn’t really know what to drink so we asked to surprise us. She made my sister a really good smoothie consisting of carrots and pineapple. I think this is a typical Italian one, because we saw this smoothie almost everywhere.
My mom took a glass of wine and I decided to go for a Gin Tonic. I think her definition of Gin Tonic is somehow different *laughs*: lots of gin, no tonic. It was really heavy!
Address: Via Malpighi 9, 20129 Milano, Italy
Hungry and in the mood for a good bite? LUNCHTIME!
If you’d like to enjoy a salad, a sandwich, a panini, a soup, … Panini Durini is a good place to go! You can find them all over Milan.
My mom took a salad, while my sister and I enjoyed a sandwich. Together with our lunch we had this heavenly great smoothie again like we had in Bar Malpighi. This time it had 2 more ingredients: apple and ginger. This one was even better!
So if you want to enjoy a smoothie at home: Apple, Carrots, Pineapple and Ginger are the holy ingredients!
I had a sandwich consisting out of chicken, smoked cheese, salad, tomato and mayonnaise. My sister had one with Roast Beef, Cheese & Rucola. Here are some pictures to demonstrate how delicious it was! 😀
Delicious ravioli della casa, cosy-non touristic place and cheap?! YES PLEASE!
If there’s one place I’d recommend for the full 100% to everyone it would certainly be: EPPOL!
This place is REALLY trending, so If you’d love to have dinner or lunch over there: make a reservation or go early enough so you’ll be able to have a spot.
All three of us each enjoyed a pasta. My sister and I even had a dessert and our mom enjoyed 2 glasses of wine. On top of that we got some appetizers of the house and that only for 55 euros! I know right, What are you waiting for?! Here’s a picture of my sisters pasta with truffle.

Good Filet Pur, octopus or a palet antipasta?
ROVELLO 18! This is a cosy restaurant where we enjoyed one hell of a filet pur. It was cut into little slices dressed with Parmesan, olive oil, pepper & salt together with some baked potatos. Nothing more, nothing less. Italians don’t use sauces with their meat, so know that. You can order some side dishes with it like spinach, broccoli or cauliflower. Very basic, but tasty and that’s all we need!
When we entered this place, we immediately saw a wide range of wine bottles. My mom recognized a wine we had before at home, so our appetite to have dinner was 100%!
Last but not least the dessert my sister enjoyed was really delicious too. It was some sort of chocolate cake.
The owner is a very friendly old man. He’s adorable. On top of that he has a dog sitting on a chair under a table. She even had a bow in her hair! Really cute! This means this place is filled with warm people, because not everyone allows a dog in a restaurant.
I need to mention this address was also recommended by Michelin, so this address is a little more expensive.
Address: Via Tivoli, 2, 20121 Milano, Italy
Another cosy restaurant, with live music in the evening?! PERFECT!
RONCHI 78! This restaurant had really nice bartenders dancing and singing along with the music. No worries: this music was not too loud and even GOOD! The good old music days with Dire Straits, Phil Collins, Michael Jackson, …
The anti pasta plate we had was really good. They even served some sort of Américain Préparé (minced beef) with it, which was really tasty on a piece of bread with pepper and salt.
I need to mention this restaurant is specialized in MEAT, at least this is what we read in a book. Next to that I heard that their Risotto is an eye-catcher.
The filet pur we had was really good and served with mushroom sauce and baked potatos together with thyme. Also here you could enjoy side dishes.
Starting from 22h there’s live music to enjoy while you’re there. Ideal to set the mood! Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to make pictures.

I think I spend my holidays very well, don’t you? 😉 Good food, sunny weather and a lovely city. Hope you enjoyed my post! See you soon.
