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

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!!

Wir haben die Tour innerhalb einer kleinen Gruppe gemacht, was wirklich sehr angenehm war, da man so die Möglichkeit hatte viele individuelle Fragen zu stellen und nebenbei vieles über Sizilien zu erfahren. Guiseppe ist ein toller Guide, der sehr erfahren mit der Insel, dessen Geschichte und natürlich auch dem Essen ist - welches angemerkt wirklich sehr sehr gut geschmeckt hat. Wir empfehlen die Tour definitiv!

Die Tour hat uns sehr gut gefallen.. Unser Guide war pünktlich am vereinbarten Ort und hat uns mit einer kleinen Stadtführung durch Palermo geführt. Es war ein toller Abend. Der Preis ist ordentlich, hat sich aber geloht.... Stadtführung inclusive. Guide war freundlich und hat sich sehr viel Mühe gegeben!
