Last Thursday Eataly opened it’s doors in Munich, bringing la dolce vita to the bavarian capital. After hearing that Eataly, which was founded in Turin in 2003, has stores in some major metropoles like New York, Rome or Tokyo and only hearing excited reviews about it I was pretty excited to see it myself. On about 4600 square meters one can enjoy food at one of the 16 restaurants and food stands or treat yourself at one of the 9 show-workshops.
My highlight was the Pizzeria Rossopomodoro for sure and I think it not too much to say that this was one of the best pizzas for a long time. Now I’m excited for our next visit and having another bite of those great pizzas. The only downside is that you can’t order those babes as take away which is probably fine as I would then be eating them every day.
For all those with a sweet tooth, there is a chocolate paradise in the basement with two chocolate fountains. And if you love ice cream as much as I do you will find great ice cream on the ground floor at Gelateria Venchi. That night I had a taste of pistachio ice cream and it was amazing. May be a new spot for next summer?
After having our tour through Eataly Vicky, some of my fellow bloggers and me were invited to take part in a cooking class at Valcucine. The culinary school, Valcucine is offering all year round different workshops and makes a great addition to Eataly. We had on our agenda a dish with Cappelletti, a kind of filled and homemade pasta. Which was a bit tricky to make but so delicious that I just need a pasta machine to start producing my own pasta at home.
Huge thanks to Eataly for the invitation and a warm welcome in Munich! And for all Munich people out there, definitely a place to check out.
