In Colombia you can find lots of different foods that you can find nowhere in England. For example ‘arepas’ are a sort of pancake that you can put lots of stuff on like meat or cheese. My favouite one so far is ‘arepa de huevo’ (with egg inside). I had it for breakfast one day. I don’t know how they get the egg inside. Here are two pictures of it.
Another Colombian food that I really like is ‘patacones’ which is like a pancake made from a kind of big banana that they grow here. In Colombia they use these bananas like potatoes – they cook them in lots of different ways in the main course of your dinner, not your pudding. They roast it, they fry it like chips and they mash it into ‘patacones’. We have seen lots of farms growing bananas but we don’t think they grow potatoes here.
Colombian food is very tasty and I am enjoying trying new things.
