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
