As we mentioned this morning, the Holiday Markets are in full swing, and we were down by Union Square yesterday. It was a beautiful day to stop at the Union Square Holiday Market for lunch.
One vendor who is at a bunch of different markets throughout the year, but we haven’t tried yet, is Arancini Bros.
You probably already know that arancini are Sicilian rice balls. We used to get them from Papa Perrone’s, but since he’s been off the road, they are difficult to find.
Jiannetto’s Pizza Truck was selling Papa Perrone’s rice balls after he came off the road, but we haven’t seen them in midtown in a while either.
Arancini Bros rice balls are $5 each, or 2 for $9. We got one classic Sicilian ragu rice ball and one dessert rice ball.
They also had pesto arancini, as well as one with eggplant and ricotta cheese.
