The sandwich with Croquettes (U’ Pane chi Crocchè, or Pane e Cazzilli!), is part of the most classic and oldest examples of street food in the Sicilian town of Palermo. Cheap and Tasty, you can easily find one of the many “Panellari”  (Sicilian word for “Panelle Maker”, that commonly sell Panelle and Crocchè sandwiches) wherever in town, almost in every corner of the city center.

Of course is quite common to have croquette as a starter on their own, without any bread – Is really up to you if you feel like having a full meal, or just some appetizers!
