But a street food tour in Lecce cannot be complete without the "pezzetti di cavallo", an italian delicacy, tender pieces of horse meat cooked in a delicious, local tomato sauce. You have to try this authentic dish in order to really experience Italian cuisine, so you will head out toward the local "putea" (tavern) to taste it. This incredible dish needs two other things: bread for the tomato sauce, and a full glass of strong local red wine.
 
After this, you will be full and satisfied... but you are in Italy! So next you will enjoy a relaxing visit to a local cafeteria to finish your lunch with an italian espresso, the tasty pasticciotto (a round shape sweet made of pastry dough stuffed with lemon custard) and cotognata (quince jam).
