From our friend Kelly McGlinchey after her Palermo Street Food Tour.
"Breakfast this morning - a "triplo" sandwich with fried chickpea, potato and eggplant for only 1.50 Euro. Street food is king in Palermo, ranked number 5 in the world for this cuisine category. The five rules of Palermo street food, as told by @palermostreetfood, are as follows: 1. It must use local ingredients. 2. It must have historical significance. 3. It must be cheap. 4. It must be soft (a nod to when the poor of Palermo lacked teeth) and 5. It must use five ingredients or less. "
