Here’s how to extricate yourself in the food delivery of Milan, the Italian homeland of the Italian phenomenon
The solution is simple: either you cook at home or you order in delivery (or at most you opt for the take-away solution, if close to home). But who knows how to make a Neapolitan pizza, a sushi to art or a cake author? The delivery solution seems the only solution in this period. Whether starry or a simple street food, the proposal is increasingly wide, and Milan is certainly the most advanced city in terms of both offer and “technology” between apps, delivery services and packaging agreements that maintain the stability and warmth of food. Most chefs, pre lockdown, had never thought of delivering, but the situation forced them to reinvent themselves with fun and creative proposals. There are also cooking boxes and various proposals to complete at home, thanks to preparations to be completed: thus increases interactivity and closeness to historic customers and new customers.
The sushi passion goes crazy
Surely the ethnic and fusion proposal with dim sum, sushi and bao protagonists is the one that best suits the delivery. Try the one by Haruo Ichikawa who was the creator of the Michelin star in Iyo in 2014, the first Japanese restaurant to get it: recently opened the restaurant of the same name: try the nigiri with grilled eel or the ventresca of bluefin tuna. Unforgettable are the uramaki Tropical Wave, with shrimp in tempura, cream cheese, carpaccio di ricciola and jalapeño and yuzu emulsion or the ravioli stuffed with pig with saffron puff: from Izu Creative Experience delivery has been doing it for over 10 years. AJI, is the hi-tech delivery and take-away service of Japanese and Asian cuisine that has seen together the legendary trio of Claudio Liu (IYO Taste Experience), Federico Zhu and Yinlu Lin, strong experience of IYO Taste Experience: do not miss the gyoza, gunkan, nigiri-sashimi, the hosomaki and the chirashi. Of recent inauguration, for now still in dark kitchen are poke “balanced” with the support of a nutritionist of Pacific Poke, landed in Milan after Turin. Double proposal with Bomaki and the new Poku by Bomaki, Hawaiian poke with 12 recipes with an Asian touch given by different dressing (yuzu, sesame, teriyaki). Miso lovers? Ramen Shifu’s broth is homemade and is based on the original recipe of the region of Hakata, district of the city of Fukuoka. Creative bao and ravioli that mix east and west, accompanied by cocktails to perfection, the address is Bob Milano, one of the best cocktail bars in Milan.
The great tables of catering

Brunch and breakfast in bed, no longer a luxury
