Full description
Street food is a strong tradition on the streets of Palermo. The discovery of Palermo comes through its flavors, the food shops with hundreds of years of experience and the small restaurants where fried goodies are served- your palate will be grateful! And do not worry: a fresh and delicious dessert will be sided by a richer one, in order to enjoy the incredible variety of Palermo’s bakery scene. Within this food tour, you will have the opportunity to try the following specialties (according to the availability of raw ingredients, season and the chef’s choices): • Panino with panelle and crocchè: Sesame bread stuffed with mashed potatoes “balls” or with chickpea omelet • Sfincione: Made with a pizza-like dough covered with fresh tomato salsa, anchovy paste, capers and onion • Rice Arancina: Rice ball is filled with different ingredients (meat, smoked ham, spinach, mixed cheeses and so much more) and then deep fried • Sicilian cannoli: Waffle, traditionally shaped around a hot metallic bar, filled with a sweet and creamy paste made with ricotta cheese, candied fruit, crunchy pistachios from the country surrounding the city or dark chocolate drops • Panino ca meuza: If you're a true experimenter and not afraid of strong tastes, you can try this sandwich filled with boiled spleen pieces and fried in lard. A real connoisseur sandwich • Sicilian granita: Served in a glass and it is meant for concluding a rich meal

    We did the tour in a small group, which was really nice because you had the opportunity to ask many individual questions and learn a lot about Sicily at the same time. Guiseppe is a great guide who is very experienced with the island, its history and, of course, the food - which, as noted, tasted really, really good. We definitely recommend the tour!

    Tour guide great. Orga not quite

    Tour guide was very good. very committed, very friendly. Thanks a lot! Are really full. No bargain for 55 euros. However, had booked a German guide. Reposted again, which was more expensive than before. The group was then multilingual. It makes a difference whether everything is in German or whether something is translated from time to time.

    Palermo street food tour was awesome!

    Unfortunately my original guide, Enrico, felt ill the day of the event. Elisabetta met with me, and we had a great day together. We visited 5 'restaurants' and I tasted a vast variety of Sicilian food which was great. She is very knowledgeable, and a great host. The arancina was definitely my favorite. So good!!
