Tartufi and Friends was one of my favorite restaurants that I went to in Milan, and it has probably the best burger that I have ever eaten. They have locations in Rome, Milan, London, and Dubai. Tartufi means truffle in Italian, so the restaurant is built on using truffles. This was the restaurant that I went to on my last day of school after finals were done to treat myself.
Tartufi and Friends has the option of both white and black truffles (personally I thought the black truffles were better, and they were also like 1/2 to 1/3 of the price of the white truffles). They also have many different dishes that you can choose to put the truffles on; for example, you can put them on burgers, pasta, steak, etc. I personally would recommend the burger, as it is one of the cheapest options (it is still $35 though), as well as my personal favorite.
Truffles are not a cheap ingredient, so this is a very expensive restaurant; however, if you want to try one of the best places that Milan has to offer, it is a good option. I think everyone should read this article to see how truffles are found, and what makes them so expensive. After reading this article, I hope everyone realizes why they should appreciate all of the work that goes into getting them.
Overall, if you are a fan of truffles and are looking for a place to splurge at, I would highly recommend Tartufi and Friends. With truffles that are shaved right at your table, the atmosphere and food quality are both great!

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
