savor: Italy/ Palermo, Sicily

PASTICCERIA ALBA
Piazza Don Bosco, 7
Palermo
39/91.309.016

Ask where to eat the best arancine - fried balls of rice the size of small oranges and often stuffed with cheese or ragù – and nearly all of Palermo will direct you to the 150-year old Pasticceria Alba. There is a small place to sit outside to eat, but it’s mainly take away, with a massive selection of sweet Sicilian pastries like casata. Large, always busy.
Don’t want to leave your hotel: call their “Arancina Taxi” that will deliver arancine to your room.
Ice cream: is eaten in a bun of brioche.
