I'm the kind of Italian (Sicilian) who has moved abroad at an early age sort of missing out the delights my native culture is drenched in. As an adult, I have become a connoisseur of fine foods and truly appreciative of any gastronomical excellence; a genuine epicurean, I find myself searching for Sicilian authenticity in a quest to protect and promote my heritage abroad, and this is what has gotten me to take a drive up to Trecastagni with great anticipation. I arrived just around dinner time on Sunday, the place was sort of empty and looked dated and dull, although I do not rely solely on appearance, hence I go ahead and order a couple of arancini al sugo. I could tell straight away I was looking at genuine artisanal rotisserie as the breading was dark and fragrant, and the smell was quite inviting. First bite was a bliss, super crunchy and savoury; the overall sensorial experience was amazing. We are talking about the best arancino I've had so far in Catania, and I have tried quite a few. The sugo was hearty, plenty to fill just about right the inside of it. I did not like the egg part of the recipe as in my opinion it is not part of the truly original one, however this can be overlooked as it is a minor detail. If you get a chance to go out of your way to try it, please do and you'll understand what I mean. Will try the rest of the tavola calda soon (which looked very good as well). This place has been around for many decades for a reason after all. Keep up the authenticity guys!!
