Milano is known as the perfect place in Italy for sophisticated restaurants. Okay, forget that and try the real street food!
Giannasi is one of the oldest and most famous stand for getting whole little roast chickens! Here I have found my perfect ready-to-eat meal for the office with colleagues or at home for a happy snack.
The first time I was there I was driven by a friend; I can remember the flavour coming from the box and dozens of people waiting around Giannasi. It is very popular in Milano, mostly in Porta Romana neighborhood.
It is open from dawn till dusk but it’s better to avoid lunch hours. Besides roast chicken, Giannasi offers dozen of other different ready-to-eat dishes such as rice, pasta and sweets.
“Low price for a great lunch”: this is the slogan that I have heard by people there and I can confirm it!!
PS: remember to get some roast potatoes together with you chicken.
