Spica

A page for each continent: travel diary translated into a menu

While Milan is full of international restaurants of all kinds, we really needed someone who would select the best dishes from all over the world for us, bringing them together in a single menu made up of travel and passion. Spica thought about it, and decided to offer a global and cosmopolitan cuisine. Dishes from every continent, to be enjoyed in tapas format or as a main course.

Spica - Milano

The creator is Ritu Dalmia, an Indian chef star who already has a successful Milanese experience in the Cittamani restaurant. For Spica, however, he decides to let himself go to his most personal and creative part by defining the “history of his galaxy,” through all his favorite dishes on the menu. In collaboration with the chef, Viviana Varese, she decided to offer a global, democratic and fun cuisine. The location therefore, could only be in Porta Venezia. Spica is in via Melzo and is definitely influenced by the life of the neighborhood that hosts it. The environment is fresh, young and deliberately free to indulge in experimentation.

Even the concept is urban, without renouncing elegance. The 280 square meter industrial space was designed by the Vudafieri-Saverino Partners studio, which managed to perfectly mix Milanese design elements with tributes to Asian culture. The lamps, designed by Andrea Anatasio, refer to Asia, recalling Indian agricultural tools. The style that marks the spaces is contrasted with wallpapers and fluorescent elements, for an extremely colorful and lively result.

The menu is divided into four geographical areas: Southeast Asia, Indian Subcontinent, Europe and America. For each continent, then, dishes designed to be shared are offered, as well as main dishes.

From Spica it is possible to go from Chinese dim sum in crystal paste to Burmese soups and Thai salads, then moving on to tributes to India such as samosa and paratha, the typical piadina of Delhi. America is interpreted with ribs in barbecue sauce, Mexican nachos and Peruvian tostadas, the dish we preferred. The tostadas are served with three different ceviche, of amberjack, octopus and prawns, topped with guacamole, pico de gallo and tamarind sauce. No problem, however, for those who love more traditional tastes. The pasta or rice of the day is accompanied by a wonderful fried pizza. However, a single dessert menu offers multi-ethnic dishes, ranging from tiramisu to sticky rice with exotic fruit.

The counter recalls the classic Milanese bars of the 60s. Here, you can taste the drink list curated by Mattia Berscapè, which offers 15 house cocktails, characterized, like the kitchen, by spices and international flair.

Spica is the perfect place to go with friends, to satisfy the most diverse palates and get inspired by ordering dishes from every continent. What are you waiting for? Leave not for a trip, but for the whole world!

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences milan has to offer.
