Where to Enjoy a Good Burrito in Milan
Ah, burritos! Who doesn’t know and love this typical tex mex dish? This tortilla filled with meat and vegetables – available in so many different versions – is a culinary drug, and not only for lovers of Mexican cuisine!
My collaboration with Foodora continues as ambassador for the Good Food Tour project, a journey through some of the best restaurants in the city. This time we set out on a search for the “perfect burrito” (here’s a look at our previous tour together, dedicated to finding the best Chinese dumplings in the city) and we had a truly great time, surrounded by good food and laughs.
As we await the second episode (to be followed on social media using the #goodfoodtour and #cipensaFoodora hashtags), here are two restaurants in Milan where you can enjoy delicious burritos!
PIEDRA DEL SOL
Here we are in the Repubblica area, more precisely on via Cornalia, home to one of the most historic Mexican restaurants in Milan, Piedra Del Sol. This traditional restaurant, complete with rustic wood tables, colourful ceramic tiles and sombreros on the walls, serves up various Mexican specialties. We’re talking fajitas, tortillas, enchiladas, frijoles and obviously burritos! We tried the beef (my favourite), chicken and vegetarian versions, all of which were served with pico de gallo, sour cream, beans and rice. They were accompanied by sauces of all kinds, such as a delicious guacamole made from ripe avocados. We enjoyed margaritas with our meal, but the menu also proposes many different typical Mexican drinks such as tequila and mexcal!
PIEDRA DEL SOL. Via Cornalia 2, Milan. +39 02 6691901. Open everyday (12:00pm-15:00pm and 7:30pm-11:30pm, Saturday and Sunday open for dinner only).
Next, we were off to Bomaki, located off Largo La Foppa in the Moscova area, to try the awesome fish burrito. This restaurant, which has quickly expanded to become a chain throughout Milan, serves up a fusion between the cuisine of the land of the Rising Sun and Brazilian flavours. There are also many details that point to certain South American inspirations, such as the tropical fruit smoothies and their spiked versions, or the “Japanese-style burrito“: a completely radical take on the traditional recipe, but definitely worth trying! Instead of flour tortillas, the burritos are wrapped in a light soy crêpe, stuffed with rice, fried shrimp or a fish tartare. A little similar to maki rolls, but really tasty! Here too you can enjoy your meal with a delicious cocktail such as a mojito sake!
BOMAKI. Corso Sempione 10 | Largo La Foppa 1 | Via Raffaello Sanzio 24. Opening hours and phone numbers vary per location and can be found on the website.
