Lately I’m obsessed by the burgers! 😉 Probably the reason is to be found in my decision to write this article on this matter or because burgers are always very appetizing. In recent months, I have collected different lunches and dinners in some different places of the city where it’s possible to eat this lovely dish. Here, you can find the result of my “hard” work (;)): my list of 10 places where to eat gourmet burgers in Modena.
There are special places where to go at least once in your life… they are places to see, to live, to taste.
Every city has ones. They are not simply traditional restaurants in Modena, but they are commercial activities and people that did the story of the city telling its identity through the foods that every day come out from their kitchens.
I’ve collected them in this post because I think they deserve a special mention and a particular place in my heart 😉
These are 6 traditional restaurants in Modena centre where to eat at least once in your life.
I love “gnocco fritto”, I can’t resist it! There’s probably something written in my Modenese DNA: when I find myself in front of a little basket full of this fried pastry I’m simply happy 😉
There are some people who drink coffe only in the morning or after their lunch and those who drink it several times in a day. Who prefers drink a cup at home and who loves sitting in a coffee bar and have coffee reading the newspaper: in any way you prefer to drink it, coffee is a kind of ritual for Italian people! So, if you are in the centre of the city and you need a good cup of coffee, here there are 5 café to go 🙂
Today I want to tell about a beautiful discovery I recently did. I’m sure that street food lovers, but especially Tortellini lovers, will appreciate it 😉
Do you think that it’s possible to combine tradition and creativity? Typicality and new needs?
Luca Dall’Olio says “yes” and I totally agree with him 🙂
I believe that who thinks that street food is a practice that comes from far away is making a mistake.
If we think about Italian food we can realize how many traditional foods have become perfect street foods over time.
As far as Modena food traditions are concerned, have you ever thought that crescentina (well known as tigella) is one of the first street foods diffused in Modena and then exported all over the world? 😉
While I’m start to write this new article I feel I am already fond of it. The reasons are many, first of all because I will talk you about my ultra-nineties super grandmother, a very special woman, who accuses the passage of time (it could not be otherwise), but that does everything to respect the habits of the good “rezdora” (a Modenese word that indicates a sort of “queen of the house”), and then because I’ll talk you about “Tortellini” (my grandmother’s ones), a food that Modenese people have written into their DNA, a food that I love and that represents the tradition especially in this holiday season 🙂
Tigella is a state of mind, a way of life, it’s in the DNA of Emilia’s people but especially of Modena’s ones.
There are many stalls of Albinelli Market in Modena that deserve to listen to their own the story, probably all. When I walk around the market, in addition to colors and smells, I try to breathe the stories of people who every morning wake up at dawn to go to work. I make myself thousand questions, I try to imagine how many beautiful things they could tell me. And so it did Massimo Manzini, owner since 1984 of Manzini Brothers delicatessen stall. There are so many market stories in Modena….
