Mmm… you are thinking of the Cinderella fairy tale, the prince found his beloved thanks to the shoe!
But no! The shoe is the king’s bite, namely a piece of bread that “cleans” the dish from the rest of the succulent seasoning! It is known, even if they don’t say it, that Palermo is a city of pastafariani. My father must eat pasta once a day!
So if you sit at one of our restaurants or taverns, ask for bread and make the shoe!
