Each component of this dish was prepared with skill. But, the pork was utter perfection. Crisp and miraculously tender, I’d love to eat this dish every day. Sadly, I’m not a lumberjack or Olympic swimmer.
So, instead, I steal nibbles off my honey’s plate and order the arepa paisa. An ingenious concoction composed of the same ingredients, but, on a much more manageable scale. Fried pork, steak, onions and peppers are finely minced & stuffed into a fluffy arepa that has been dressed with avocado. Tasty! And, I don’t need a nap afterward.
