One of the most authentic Roman foods even if local legends say it was introduced there by the French. Simply put it’s a delicious fried rice ball. It’s fried with mozzarella which melts when deep fried. Other than that the rice flavourings are meat sauce or grounded pork. Some joints also offer pasta instead of rice. That’s delicious as well. A very common dish but it’s best available in Supplizio and Trappizio.
Polpette di bollito.
A disk of thick crust of beef stuffed between two patties. The patties are breaded and deep fried. It’s an age old Roman dish formed as a result of leftover meat which was previously stuffed with eggs and breadcrumbs. Now the delicacy evolved to something better. The beef is served with too many spices, eggs and cheese.
