That’s Vapore

Healthy food that celebrates flavor

It’s a fact that our lunch breaks are getting shorter and shorter. If you leave the office now, you barely have time for a sandwich. But if you are tired of high calorie foods, hate fast food or simply want to get into shape after the holidays, how do you maintain a healthy diet? Here’s the answer – That’s Vapore in Corso di Porta Vittoria!

That's Vapore Milano

A long time lover of #healthy restaurants, I could not avoid trying this gem, which is becoming better known in Milan with each passing day. There are no shortage of people who apparently want a healthy lunch, but at the same time want something tasty and delicious. From the name you may have guessed that steaming is one of the predominant cooking technique’s used at That’s Vapore. It’s a low calorie technique that keeps all the flavors. Vegan and vegetarian dishes are definitely a strong point of this restaurants repertoire, but even the fish, meat and homemade pasta is cooked in this way.

The restaurant always seems busy at lunch, so you may have to wait a while before you can sit down (but waiting times are mercifully short). The bistro, which is of rustic appearance, spreads over two floors (the second being an open loft), but there is a funky little outdoor terrace available in good weather. Table placements are not fussy, but beautiful and functional.

As a true lover of feta, my go-to choice is the Greek Salad with barley which comes served with cucumbers, tomatoes, red and green peppers and oregano. It’s a light, fresh dish. I also highly recommend trying one of the delicious smoothies prepared with fresh fruits and vegetables, each with different properties and health benefits that come made with fresh fruit and vegetables. The list is large so you can choose the one that perfectly suits your needs and tastes, all in line with the philosophy of “smart healthy food” that also happens to be tasty.

If for some reason you can’t make it to the store in Corso di Porto Vittoria, there are three other That’s Vapore stores, one in Via Buonarroti, one in Piazza Gae Aulenti, one in Milano Fiori (Assago) and the last one in City Life. Prices are very reasonable and in line with expectations for a place like this. And for the very bad days at work, just know you can have your favorite dish delivered directly to your desk. Try it and see!

La Casa Iberica

Via Mercato 3, 20121 Milano

Downtown Milan: an intense afternoon spent between meetings, calls and handshakes; still many things to do and several e-mails to answer to... but it's just seven o'clock and there is so much life to live.

Pesa Pubblica

Via Melzo 19, 20129 Milano

Among the liberty palaces of Porta Venezia, every day there's a new discovery and the appearance of diverse, sleek bistros is continuous. One of the most beautiful is Pesa Pubblica, in via Melzo, that already became one of our favorite places. The restaurant is placed inside the palace that, at the start of the last century, was [...]

Via Emilia – Bottega Gastronomica

Via della Moscova 27, 20121 Milano

A rainy afternoon and a walk in Via Moscova. A great shop window captures our gaze: ladies, gentlemen and young people of all ages learn to work the dough with large wooden rolling pins under the watchful, slightly amused eye of the masters of fresh pasta. This is how we discovered Via Emilia - Bottega Gastronomica, a small pearl [...]

If you are in downtown Milan and are enjoying one of those Milanese evenings dense of social life, during one of the countless parties that liven up the week in the city, you might come across an apparition: a black food truck, inside which you can see cooks always at work, which bears the name of Zibo - Cuochi [...]

Tipografia Alimentare

Via Dolomiti 1, 20127 Milano

Everyone calls it "TipA" (an informal Italian world for "girlfriend", TN). A name that would seem to recall a song by J-Ax and Articolo 31 of a few years ago... instead it's the abbreviation of Tipografia Alimentare, a bistro on the Naviglio della Martesana which is right behind the Zelig cabaret. It would seem one of those [...]
