Eataly in Munich. My aunt loves Eataly in Rome and kept telling me how good it was. Last Christmas she gave me a big Eataly-gift-box filled with Italian delicacies, which I liked a lot. You know that I am a huge food-lover . Therefore, I couldn’t wait that Eataly would open its doors here in Munich. Tomorrow, Wednesday 26th November, is the big day and the foodmarket in the Schrannenhalle is going to opens its doors to the public.
Eataly was founded by Oscar Farinetti in 2003 in Turin. Later on he opened more positions national-wide but also international spots like Dubai, Istanbul and will open in New York, London, LA and more in the next year. Firstly Eataly presents the Italian food culture on more than 4600 square meters. I am excited if it goes down well with the public, which I’m sure it will.
To be honest, I was sceptical of the prices at first. Most of the times such food halls are very overpriced. But I was assured that they always try too keep the same prices as in other Eataly markets. However it is a little bit more expensive than a normal supermarket but there you won’t find most of the products Eataly has.
I knew the pizzeria Rossopomodoro already from my time in Milan and loved their Pizza. That’s why I am more than happy that we finally got one in the city. It is indeed hard to find a good Italian pizza here and can highly recommend theirs! Maybe the new best pizza here in town……
Next to Rossopomodoro Eataly holds 16 restaurants und stalls, such as 9 show workshops. To cut things short – everything what the culinary heart desires.
Ice creams works all year round! I know that I’m raving over Eataly already but its food was just too good. Also, try the ice cream at the Gelateria Venchi – so good! In the underground level you’ll dive into a chocolate paradise. Maybe you’ll succeed in distracting the vendors in order to dive into the chocolate columns.
In the basement you’ll also find the cooking school Valcucine, where cooking and nutrition classes will be held. We took part of one of those courses and made delicious cappelletti – less difficult than I thought! I’ve been thinking of buying a pasta machine for longer now and I think I have to get one now. Making all kinds of super thin dough is so much easier. And homemade is always better!
All in all, it was such a lovely evening and thank you so much for the invite. Of course, I’ll come back soon!
