Arancini Brothers Rice Ball

Rice Ball from Arancini Brothers

After a long afternoon wandering around Bushwick, a deep fried rice ball hit the spot.

Sure, I had a nice buzz on after a few pints around the corner, but even stone cold sober these rice balls would impress. I’ve heard them called the best outside of Italy.

I ordered two of the varieties, a carbonara and a special tomato, mozzarella and pesto. The carbonara had the expected creamy-salty flavors, but the pesto ball’s lightness contrasted with the texture of the rice.

My friends ordered a ragu ball and the corn and jalapeño ball. The ragu may have been our favorite, but there was strong support for the corn; the corn’s sweetness balanced nicely against the spice of the jalapeño, but ultimately is just another grain mixed in with the rice.
