Enjoying the Sicilian food - 10 of 10

On my trip to Sicily I knew I had to try as much as possible of the Sicilian food. It is well know that Italy is famous because of it cuisine, and there is a big reason for that. Everything I've tasted was so tasty and delicious, and I was so happy that I can not say any bed word. I've tried dishes from different restaurants and everything was simply perfect.  I will share with you what I ate on my days in Taormina and Giardini Naxos.

Sicilian food to try

Hamburger and fries

 We ordered this shared hamburger once we arrived to Giardini Naxos . The portion was fine for two persons, since we were not so hungry. Everything was fresh and tasty to eat. The portion was served like this, in addition we ordered a local bear Messina, which was also very good. I liked everything, even though I prefer other things more than minced meat, I really enjoyed this lunch.[/caption]

Rice with sea food and pork in tomato sauce

 As you can see this looks delicious, and it really was. Rice combined with mussels, baby octopus, squid and parsley on top. If you love seafood and rice go for it without a doubt.

 For the meat lovers, the pork in tomato sauce and some potatoes is a perfect idea. It is not an unusual recipe, but once again it was very tasty.

Fried Calamari and Chicken breasts in white mushrooms sauce

I have always wanted calamari and I had to try it even here. It was very fresh and I simply enjoyed eating it. Bu boyfriend went again with a meat and ordered amazing chicken breasts in white sauce. I gave it a bite obviously. Didn't disappointed me.[/caption]

Pizza, pizza, pizza

"You can't go wrong with pizza, unless it's terrible pizza!"

Gnocchi pasta

 This was the first time I tried Gnocchi, and they were amazing. They were with ricotta, and I like ricotta a lot, and the texture of the pasta was really really soft, fluffy and fresh. The portion was perfect for me, eve though it looked small.

Caprese Salad

 Very simple and typical Italian salad, made of tomatoes and mozzarella cheese, with some basil, olive oil, salt and pepper. I ate this as breakfast and it was the right thing to do. I refreshed me and was very easy for my stomach. I even prepared it for my work some of the past days.


Not in any way let yourself miss a Sicilian Gelato. The Sicilian Ice Cream. The sweetest thing, that softly melts in your mouth and tastes the best you can imagine. I don't have word to describe it. You have to try it!!!

Remember some of this dishes for your trip in Sicily and give it a try. I guarantee you, you won't be disappointing. Besides this I have also tried many other Sicilian food recipes in Malta, because Malta has a lot of influence from Sicily, being that it is it's Southern neighbor. Try their pastries made of almonds, or the Cannoli, a pastry with sweet ricotta. I will also mention the Arancini, the rice balls. Do you have something else on your mind, what Sicilian food have you tried?
