My dad says “Cheap thing ain’ good and good thing ain’ cheap”. Except every so often, someone or something comes around to break the rules. The following restaurants have come up with winning affordable options.
When I heard that a whole bunch of young adults got together to open a hip middle eastern eatery I knew I had to try it. I was so pleased with the quality of the food! My favorite is the vegan wrap made with falafel, baba ganoush, Israeli salad and capers
My favorite is the salsiccia e friarelli pizza (2.50€). Aesthetically speaking, it has a few stools on one side and counter/oven on the other. It’s also a great place to grab a bite before heading to the movies across the street.
The typical/traditional dish from the region is arrosticini, thin lamb kabobs simply roasted over an open flame and dressed with a bit of salt and olive oil. (I love most things lamb.) They have the best arrosticini I’ve had in Milan, (5 kebobs for 4.50€)
Here in Italy the talk is always about quality. You almost never hear anyone talking about something being the BIGGEST anything. Somehow the owners of “C’era…” forgot this and made these massive piadina that also happen to be ridiculously good.
I had the panuozzo con salsiccia e friarielli (7.50€), a sandwich bread made out of pizza dough filled with sausage and rapini sprouts. And lets not forget the mozzarella made with buffalo’s milk (6€), delivered daily. Delicious!
