Yum Milano


YUM was included as one of the best restaurants in Milan and Italy by Gambero Rosso, a famous food and wine magazine in Italy. What makes this resto special aside from the rice bowls, pork, desserts, noodle soups, and skewers is the inspiring story behind Yum.


We love the palabok, ricebowls, and the Instagram worthy shrimp cocktail!


Marvin Braceros started as a domestic helper in Italy for the longest time and decided to start and expand his restaurant in the Philippines.
