What to eat
Palermo, famous all over the world for its street food, should not only be seen, it should also be "tasted"!
These are the most famous foods of our city:
"Pani cà meusa": in Italian "sandwich with the spleen". It is a sandwich filled with spleen, lung and trachea of ??veal boiled and then cut into thin slices, then fried in lard. There is a variant called "schietta" with only lemon, and the "maritata" one, topped with flakes of caciocavallo.
"Pane Panelle e Crocchè": panella is a small omelette made with chickpea flour, water and parsley, typical of the city of Palermo. Crocchè, on the other hand, are potato croquettes. Everything is placed inside a round sandwich.
"Arancina": it is perhaps the most famous food in the city. It is a fried rice ball filled with minced meat or butter. Lately, several variations have emerged, but we always recommend going classic!
"Cannolo": typical Palermo dessert, made up of a crunchy wafer filled with sweet ricotta, chocolate flakes and decorated with candied fruit. Unmissable!
