Arancini Brothers Has Got Balls, and They’re Made of Rice

My daily commute to and from the L train in Bushwick takes me past a few notable B’wick establishments, including the likes of  Roberta’s. But one closet-sized storefront has claimed my curiosity, if only for the true uniqueness of its offerings: Sicilian rice balls.

Arancini Brothers sits on the corner of Flushing Avenue and Evergreen Street, in perfect proximity to a few local bars (think late night munching). A glimpse of their deep-fried risotto rice balls induces immediate mouth watering, and after daily passings-by, I couldn’t help but pop in this past weekend.

They carry all kinds of flavor combinations, including some vegetarian and one vegan. We tried the Four Cheese, Spinach and Ricotta, Wild Mushroom and Tellegio, and Roasted Cauliflower, Capers, Lemon, and Parsley (vegan, and my favorite). At three dollars a piece, these snacked-sized balls are sure to fill up our Frequent Baller card in no time (yup, they have those).

    I’ll have to go and try the Parsley one. These sound delicious.
