Restaurants and bars in Milan. Beer at Pazzeria and the night of flying computers

October 21st, 2012

For those who in Italy from a glass of red wine, white wine or spumante still choose a pint of beer Pazzeria is definitely a place to visit. Both amateurs and real beer gurus will find it remarkable since the choice here is almost unlimited and the waiter can always fetch you some new label the owner happened to discover by sheer luck just a couple of days before. Unfortunately, I can’t describe all subtle differences in colour and taste between beer bottles you find in mundane supermarkets and home brewed species you can find in Pazzeria. Surrounded by beer fans since childhood I am still a beer virgin asking for cider in the pubs and for wine in the restaurants. But according to the references of my beer-bellied friends and to the number of empty glasses they normally leave on the table, the place is a Paradise.

The cuisine, instead, is pretty simple. You’ll be served with a huge plate of some heavy German/Italian dish like donkey stew with polenta, sausage and cabbage or grilled pork ribs. The taste won’t make you scoff the whole plate in two minutes flat, but will leave you full up to the ears and rather satisfied.

One more thing to say about the place: They like sports there. To the point that they even attached a tennis racket to the toilet key. So when you go to the ladies’ or gents’ you  will be obliged to drag this nice accessory with you.

After the night at Pazzeria (which literally means craziness) I decided I should start selecting the places I visit according to their name and not only according to their reputation. And here’s why:

Some of you most probably have heard of Italian family quarrels with plates being smashed while obscenities are chanted. Well, the information is outdated. Launching plates is obsolete as the 21st century requires high technologies. That is computers. Actually, I still can’t understand how it transpired that my beloved Sony Vaio was lifted in the air and with a croaking sound got smashed against a wall. As I was gathering the tiny bits of my ex-computer and flavouring my goodbye speech to the computer launcher with some noxious words, I still hoped I would manage to reassemble it to something usable. If only… The masterpiece I can now see on the screen could have well been the prototype of the “Black Square” of Malevich. Which obviously entails problems with new posts and sabotages the whole idea of this blog….
