First of all, cuoppo is a conic paper containing fried food such as zeppole, crocchè, fried vegetables, arancini,  frittatine and fish.
Most of all, the street food culture is everywhere, but in Naples has a different taste thanks to a common thread  with the origins of the recipes and the people lives.
Especially relevant is the cuoppo’s packaging. It has a long tradition knew already between ‘800 and ‘900. It’s even mentioned in the Matilde Serao’s book Il ventre di Napoli.  Peddler fry cooks sold a paper case with little fried fish, panzarotti and other fried foods just for few coins; neapolitans were very poor and so, they prefered the “cuoppo a otto”, a cuoppo purchased on credit close eight days.

Passione di Sofì is the best place to eat a cuoppo. For 5 euro you can choose between: a tasty mix of fish, a yummy mix of fried snacks or a mix of fish and fried snacks.
