Is it possible to eat well and with a few euros in the center of Milan? Of course! Even if Milan is the economic capital of Italy, famous for design, fashion, and luxurious streets like Via Montenapoleone, it is still in Italy and therefore you can always find good value for money. And if you want to eat good fish in Milan, here is the place you cannot miss.
A gourmet fast food for fish lovers
The Fisherman, a few minutes walk from the Brera district, is a gourmet fast food where contemporary fish dishes meet the tradition. Yes, you can eat good fish in Milan. The main proposal is michetta, a loaf of bread, that can be found all around Italy. It has the shape of a rose or a star. In fact, in some parts of north Italy it is called rosetta and in the Bergamo area stellina. Here, it is filled with fish, fruit, vegetables, and cheese.
What I tried
I tried Michetta Missori, with carpaccio of salmon, pineapple, and pink pepper which is served together with fried carrots.
And I shared with a friend a portion of fried fish, again paired with fried vegetables.
As you can see, the food comes in boxes that you can close and bring with you as a doggie bag, in case you can’t finish it.
Good value for money
Here you can eat for 10 euros. The Michetta is generally 9 euros, coffee, and water 1 euro each. We paid 29 euros in two. You can eat there, take away, or even call for your meal to be delivered. On their Facebook page, you will find the entire menu with prices.
Where is it
Very close to Moscova Metro Station, I really suggest you this place for a quick launch or also if you want food to take away and eat in the nearby Parco Sempione. It is the perfect pit stop after visiting the Brera Pinacoteque or during Milan Design Week.
Fashion Week is different. You won’t say you eat during the fashion week. And in case you do, you will never publicly admit you eat carbs. But that’s another story 😉
