Gambas with caviar (Quimet & Quimet)

image

This place has very limited opening hours, is in a kinda sketchy area, and is standing room only – no chairs. We struck out on our previous visit and weren’t sure they’d be open since today was a holiday but we got lucky. Our first few rounds were so amazing I forgot to take pictures.

Ultimo gelato

image

Parting is a little sweeter when you have as much gelato as we did….my last night in Milan. Granted, I’ll only be apart from Sara for 24 hours but for Italia it will be much longer. Grazie to my amazing hosts, Sara e Sante.

How can I know what good gelato is if I don’t try them all?

image

Today’s flavors were from Peck: pistachio, coffee, and chocolate chip. At least we shared this and didn’t get anything at Laduree across the street. Rumor has it we have to try one more tonight.

Dinner at work (aka Sara’s house) – buonissima!

Salad with tomatoes, gorgonzola, nodini di mozzarella, kidney beans, salumi, bresaola, chicken breast, and borettane onions.

No seats left on the train!

We got to the station 5 minutes before the 6:20pm train left. There was “standing room only”. We didn’t want to wait an hour for the next train so we got on. It’s a 2 hr 40 mn train ride back to Milan from Venice.
