May 18, 2017 10:00 am

Street food is having a moment right now. Whether it's Korean street fare fresh from a food truck or French crepes served hot from the griddle, there's something about eating these simple, delicious snacks that is so enticing and enjoyable. At Piada Italian Street Food, you can taste the same cuisine that residents of Italy enjoy daily.

Piada just debuted a branch near Orion at the Cascades a few months ago, so you're ahead of the curve if you've already dined here. If not, it's time to come check out some of the signature items. The piadas, of course, are the main event. They're essentially wraps swathed in thin Italian dough that's baked to golden-brown on the grill and then hand-rolled around fresh ingredients. Try the Chef's Favorite piada, filled with romaine, sweet and spicy peppers, mozzarella, creamy Parmesan dressing, and spicy diavolo sauce for the quintessential Piada Italian Street Food experience.
