Travel Food: What to Eat in Italy

If there’s anything Italians are more serious about than their fashion is their food, and trust me the fuss is legit. And no, I am not talking just about pizza. Starting the day with a shot of espresso and ending with the gelato, oh those golden days in Italy! Before I miss the point, let’s go over food to try in Italy.

1. Coffee and Croissant: No morning is as delicious as the one that starts with an espresso coffee shot and a croissant. Agree much? Your trip length would fall short for the variety of croissants Italian cafés have to offer. I mean pistachio croissant is a thing guys, and it’s 10x more delicious than you would imagine.

2. Pasta & Pizza: I know what you are thinking Italy-Pasta-Pizza, Pasta-Pizza-Italy, pretty innovative suggestion, added *rolling eyes*!! But really it just tastes different here. They freshly make their pasta every day. You can customize the way you like and comes in different selection like Gnocchi, Spaghetti, Fusilli, etc. It’s very delicious!! And don’t forget to try their authentic Napolitan pizza, which comes unsliced and it’s too delicious to describe in words!

3. Street Toast: This is one place I can not miss the mention as this was literally my lunch everyday for the 3 days I stayed in Milan! Street Toast is right next to the Milan Cathedral and absolutely a toast I have never eaten before.. It’s a gigantic portion and so easy to carry and eat around when you plan to shop and explore Milan city.

4. Spritz: This is an Italian wine based specialty cocktail, with a dash of bitter liqueur which is definitely worth trying!

5. Cannoli: An Italian dessert,which looks like a tube made of pastry dough and filled with sweet creamy ricotta! Again too delicious to describe..
