Do you love arancini AKA Italian riceballs? I’ve got a great deal for you. But first, let me introduce you to The Little Sicilian food truck.
In 2016, The Little Sicilian launched its food truck onto the food festival circuit to much acclaim. Since then, its become a mini food truck empire expanding to three food trucks that travel to public events and private parties in the tri-state area.
As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, the Collingswood-based company has been hard hit by the lack of food truck events and corporate clients it typically gets. An e-commerce website was set up to sell the famous arancini online across the country. The online store offers all of its specialty flavors individually or in variety packs.
“We always had it in mind to ship our riceballs, but the quarantine and the lack of events forced us to move more quickly in establishing the e-commerce business,” John S., owner, told Philly Grub.
Recently, I tried online ordering for myself and received a shipment. The riceballs are delivered frozen with ice packs inside the box they are shipped in and instructions for frying or baking are included. I opted to bake them in the oven on convection for 15 minutes as 10 minutes didn’t seem to get them up to temperature for me. Your oven may vary.
Then I took them out of the oven and pan-fried them for a couple of minutes on each side in a little EVOO for some crispiness and color on the outside. Served on a bed of baby arugula and a side of marinara, they were absolutely scrumptious!
