Palermo’s Hand-held Cuisine


This weekend in Palermo was the Panoramvs Street Food festival. Organized by Palermo’s civic government with support from the Milan Expo 2015, the Street Food Festival celebrated the city’s world-famous hand-held cuisine including pane cà meusa (veal spleen sandwich, pictured), panelle (chickpea flower fritters), cazzilli (potato fritters) arancine (rice balls), sfincioni (flatbread baked with tomato/anchiovies/caciocavallo special sauce), stigghiola (lamb intestine wrapped around parsley, onions, leeks or scallions), and more.

  1. I love street food and have eaten it all over – Hawaii, Spain, Mexico, and good ol’ Denver! People will shy away from it and warn me it’s not safe, but that never stops me! 🙂
