If pique macho, a popular Bolivian dish made with steak and hot dogs, doesn't pique your curiosity, you must be a vegetarian. Don't be surprised if the only green on the table is the llajua, a hot sauce made with rocoto peppers, tomato and herbs.
The proposed menu:
Pique Macho: Sauteed steak with sliced hot dogs, onions, tomatoes, hot peppers, potato and cheese
Aji de Lengua: Beef tongue stew
Chicharron: Fried chunks of pork
Majao Cambita: Beef jerky bits in yellow rice, onions, eggs and yellow plantains
K'allu: Hominy, onion, tomato, hot peppers and cheese salad
Escabeche Mixto: Pickled cauliflower, carrots and onions with head cheese
Chuno: Dark mountain potatoes
The final bill for the meal, including tax and tip, will be divided equally among the diners. The estimated cost per diner is $22-27. You will be responsible for the cost of any drinks and individual dessert that you order. Cash only. Please bring small bills.
Seating is limited to one table. Please only RSVP “Yes” if you will attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP.
