During their first weekend trading in Dinetown’s The Iveagh Market, Ciao Cannoli sold out. The food truck is clearly taking the Japanese idea of shokunin- an obsession with perfecting one particular thing and only that thing- to heart and are just selling cannoli, seven different types of cannoli to be exact.
Cannoli are Italian pastries consisting of tube-shaped shells of fried pastry dough, filled with a sweet, creamy filling.
Ciao Cannoli are selling toasted pistachio, chocolate chip and orange, Nutella and toasted hazelnut, coconut cream, pineapple, and dark chocolate, strawberry jam and white chocolate flavoured cannoli.
Ciao Cannoli is the brainchild of Federico Riezzo, director of the event specialist Catch Events and self-proclaimed “Cannolo Campione”.
Following their opening on Friday June 18th, Ciao Cannoli sold out a couple of days later on June 21st and were forced to close the truck up early due to the demand.
You can find Ciao Cannoli in Dublin 8’s The Iveagh Market, follow them on Instagram for more information.
