Food Mood?

Siiigh I love the food in Perú and it loves me (my hips!)
I never thought a potato would be so good.  I will say though that the concept of corn on the cob with an accompanying slice of cheese doesn´t really do it for me though.
Here are some pictures of the various delectable dishes I´ve gotten to experience.
As they say in el Perú:  que te aproveches!
avena, or kinda watery oatmeal, YUM!

"Lomo a lo pobre"

In the foreground is a plate called “Lomo a lo pobre” which teams up a piece of steak, french fries, a hot dog, and a fried egg. I believe this cost $2. Above that is an exotic dish called a “chicken salad sandwich.”

The Chicarron sandwich comes with pork, sweet potato, and an onion relish. It was phenomenal.

Better than an apple pie

For dessert, a yuca and sweet potato pie. McDonald’s apple pie has nothing on this. One of the best desserts ever.
