You may not even know what supplì is, but even so I can assure you that the best place to eat this wonder in Rome is at Supplizio – the name is already very suggestive, right? Haha 😉
Well, supplì is nothing more than a breaded and fried rice cake with a delicious filling. Despite being very reminiscent of an arancini, these two Italian delicacies do have some differences. Arancini, better known to us, has its origin in Sicily, has a leased or conical shape (like a drumstick) and its classic filling is with ragout, cheese and peas.
Supplì, on the other hand, is a typical Roman delicacy, has a more elongated shape (almost like a croquette) and the traditional recipe is with chicken giblets, tomato sauce and cheese. Currently, it is much easier to find versions without the kids, okay?
As you may imagine, in Supplizio you will not only find the traditional version, but 7 options: classico, tradizionale, carbonara, arrabbiata, crochetta affumicata, cacio and pepe and, finally, donkey and acciughe. If you want to know the peculiarities of each flavor just click here and check the menu.
Each muffin costs 3 euros – less the Affumicata crochetta which costs 2 -, it is well served and that’s why I thought the price was very fair. The best? The supplì is delicious! Crunchy cones, moist filling, melted cheese … Each cookie is a nourishment in the soul, really. I loved it so much that I already miss it and, of course, my mouth watered.
The place is also super cozy, it has a hipster / vintage decor that you know I love. Detonated brick walls, leather sofas and armchairs, beautiful lamps… It really is a charm.
As good food + cozy place is a combo that works at any time, be sure to visit this corner in Rome. Aah, and if you know one more difference between Arancini and Supplì, be sure to comment below 😉
