Milan, Italy

Italy – a country known for its delicious food.

Panzerotti

In the streets behind Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is Luini, a place famed for its Panzerotti. These snacks are fried dough parcels similar to doughnuts filled with sweet or savoury fillings typically mozzarella and tomato.

Luini’s is a small counter in the wall with a very long line outside. The line moves fast but make sure you read the menu so you know what you want to order when you get to the front. The Italians aren’t patient.

I got the ham and mozzarella panzerotti for €2.50. At this price they’re a good deal especially in this expensive area of Milan.

Ice Cream

Milan is full of ice cream parlours open throughout the year.

I tried Gelato Giusto, a well-known ice cream parlour in Milan. Even though it was November I still wanted my ice cream fix. Gelato Giusto is located in walking distance of Milano Centrale and is recognisable by their cartoon cow logo. Their selling point is they don’t use preservatives in their ice cream. They had a fairly large variety of flavours but nothing too out of the ordinary. I had pistachio and mango ice cream.
