Final challenge: arancine or barchettine?

This weekend, Cicala Caffetteria Italiana presents us with a challenge to the death for Sicilian street food: arancine or barchettine? How can we decide between these two mouth-watering specialities from Palermo? Do you prefer the world-famous rice balls stuffed and fried or the barchettine filled with boiled ham, mozzarella and fried aubergines? You be the judge. Cicala is waiting for you to try them both and choose (if you can).

Malafemmena’s awarded as the 67th best pizzeria in the world

Again on the topic of competitions, Pizzeria Malafemmena has brought honour to the name of Italian pizza abroad. If there are around 80000 pizzerias in Italy, how many are there in the world? Maybe millions? Well… The most skilled agency on the matter of pizza and pizzerias, 50 Top Pizza, has named Malafemmena the 67th best pizzeria in the world. It is an honour to have two Malafemmena pizzerias in our beloved Berlin!
