Arancini, Supli, or Italian Rice Balls - Best?

TorontoTips | Nov 1, 2008 10:58 AM

Ever since Gus & Maria's Italian Delicatessen in deepest-darkest Scarberia closed a few years ago, I have been lusting for fresh Arancini or Supli, otherwise known as Italian rice balls. Their version had the meat, sauce and peas stuffing in a large cheesy rice ball cotaed with breadcrumbs and fried a crunchy mahogany brown.

Gus and Maria's was a common saturday morning ritual for my family for decades, the smell of the rice balls (as well as other treats like stuffed peppers, veal, cabbage rolls, etc.) would envelop the car and make the trip home excruciatingly exciting!

Anyone know of a place in Toronto (or North-York / Scarborough) where I can satisfy my longing?
