Authentic Sicilian & Italian Street Foods
Sicily Street, a celebration of Sicilian and Italian Street Foods. A dream come true for Astor Morgan, a Sicilian American who grew up between the colorful cultures of Sicily and South Louisiana. Having had plenty of street food as a kid in Sicily, Astor was always looking to fill that craving in the states. Being unsuccessful at finding authentic Sicilian street food, especially Arancini, Astor decided to open Sicily Street. Astor is an Advertising and Commercial photographer based in L.A.
Arancini, aka risotto balls, are a ball of rice, typically with a savory cheese filled center, covered in bread crumbs and fried, are the staple of all Sicilian street foods. Arancini are said to have originated in 10th-century Sicily at a time when the island was under Arab rule. Arancini are found at most Sicilian food vendors from Sicily to mainland Italy and, now, anywhere you find Sicily Street. Sicily street has traditional Sicilian Arancini, as well as new flavors and creations.
