It seems a bit churlish to post my lunch so soon after I’ve written about the tools of the Inquisition, but otherwise I’ll forget.
Today I decided to sup on comida costeña, the typical food of the Colombian coast, at La Casa de Socorro, one of the more famous fish restaurants in Cartagena.
The first course, accompanied by passionfruit juice, was patacones con tollo, dogfish shark with the wonderful mashed, fried plantain cakes:
Main course: bandejo de pargo a la cosquera (red snapper in seafood sauce with coconut milk). It was served with more patacones, a plate of coconut rice (a local speciality: rice steamed in coconut milk—yum!) and washed down with more passionfruit juice.
