City Guide: Rome

By Maria Pasquale

I Supplì

Don't be turned off by the long lines, Suppli is not-to-be-missed for Roman street food.

This bustling take-away shop has been churning out some of the most delicious snack foods in Trastevere since 1979. Although there is a plethora of choices from fried foods, to pizza to pasta and gnocchi, as the name suggests the people flock here for the suppli: balls of rice cooked with a meat ragù, stuffed with mozzarella, rolled and deep-fried in breadcrumbs. However the pizza by the slice is also to-die-for, with a crisp light base. Try the marinara topped with tomato, garlic and oregano. There is no seating and the place is endlessly heaving, so get in line with the Romans and rub shoulders as you sample true Italian-style fast-food.
