"If I had a dollar for every time someone said 'What's a riceball?' I wouldn't even need to make 'em," said JohnPaul Perrone on an episode of the Cooking Channel's Eat Street. Since then, JohnPaul has moved from a food truck to a brick-and-mortar restaurant where he continues to create riceballs (known as arancini in Italian) using his grandmother's recipe. At Papa Perrone's Riceball Shoppe, each crisp and golden deep-fried ball protects a tender core of meat and cheese, veggies and cheese, or Nutella-flavored magma. The shop's menu also features other Perrone family recipes as well as Italian specialties, such as artichoke pie, baked or fried calzones, and meatballs.
