One of the cheapest eats in Rome is also one of the most sinfully delicious, deep-fried foods you may ever sink your teeth into: Arancini. These tasty little temptations are baseball-sized rice balls stuffed with anything from prosciutto and mozzarella, to squid ink and pistachios. Gourmands may recognize them as the fat Sicilian cousins of the equally delish suppli.
At Mondo Arancina, the city’s undisputed arancini king, they cost you a shiny €2 coin. (So, fine, they’re more like $2.64!) The shop also specializes in pizza buy the slice, but what’s the novelty in that?
