Favorite Dish: Remember when potato chips were not mass produced crap? When you could taste that you were indeed eating a potato? Well, I do though I don't remember people making them on the street in front of my very eyes. Thanks to Colombia I now do and though I am not as a rule an eater of potato chips, if I could get these all the time I might very well be! You will see people with carts that have deep fryers built into them. In these, they make not only potato chips but also plantain chips and churros. For a mere 1000 COP (50 US cents) you can have a small bag of any of the three. The potato chips are fantastic. Churros are deep fried donut type pastries with a nice sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon. These were quite good too and generally quite fresh. Due to the low prices they have great turnover.
