Italian Revelation Panzerotti

My last day my friend took me to a place she knew I was going to love. A small take away sort of bakery in the heart of Milan, just a couple blocks away from the Duomo. The place Luini, selling all sort of baked and fried Italian treats, salty and sweet, but the specialty and the big queue has one name Panzerotti. A fried folded dough filled with the best Italian ingredients, plenty of options to choose, mine the classic mozzarella cheese and tomato. 

The Place
Panzerotti is a gastronomic specialty from Puglia, it came to Milan in 1949 when Giuseppina Luini moved there from the southern Italian region and opened a bakery, a couple years later she found her grandfather recipe and started to do the Panzerotti. The recipe is a family secret and according to them the reason of the success. 

Getting mine
I honestly can tell you these Panzerotto are amazing, is the best thing I have tried in years. The filling is perfect, the fried dough is perfectly done, and the taste is superb. Apparently Luini had a sister place in London but I haven’t been able to find it, these babies are so good that I’m in desperately need of a Panzerotti as any addict passing withdrawal symptoms, if anyone knows where is his place in London just let me know. 

Best in Milano
Ready to Roll
Bakeries remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Dinner Party” when Jerry and Elaine are trying to buy a Bobka for a party. 

Jerry: That's the last Babka. They got the last Babka 
Elaine: I know. They're going in first with the last Babka 
Jerry: That was our Babka 
Elaine: You can't beat a Babka 
Jerry: We should have had that Babka 
Elaine: They're going to be heroes 
Jerry: What are we going to do now. If we can't get the Babka the whole thing is useless 
Elaine: Well how about a carrot cake? 
Jerry: Carrot cake? Now why is that a cake? You don't make carrots into a cake. I'm sorry 
Elaine: Black Forrest? 
Jerry: Black Forrest? Too scary. You're in the Forrest, oohh 
Jerry: How about a Napoleon? 
Elaine: Napoleon? Who's he to have a cake? He was a ruthless war monger. We might well get Mengele 
Jerry: That was our Babka. We had that Babka! 
Elaine: What's this one? 
Clerk: That's cinnamon Babka 
Jerry: Another Babka?
