It’s foodgasm Friday again and this week I take a look at something close to my heart (And Stomach). I haven’t been this excited since I did my artery exploding  orgasm inducing Poutine review back in Montreal Canada, last year before I even left on my travels.

Those of you know know me (Or at least have to put up with me talking about food alot) will know that my no 1 food love is Fries. I can’t get enough of them. I just can’t say no to a bowl of delicious fries.  So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered Salchipapas.

So what is Salchipapas? Well  I’m glad you asked, Salchipapas is a dish originating in Lima Peru made up of French fries, cut up beef sausages and usually accompanied with a choice of condiments such as Mayonaise,Mustard, ketchup and sometimes chilli peppers. I encountered it a lot throughout Ecuador and Lima.


Why hallo there my delicious friend

My first taste of this artery exploding (Totally healthy) dish was in Quito Ecuador at an bistro/bar called….. wait for it “The G Spot” I was there with my friend Rosie at the time (The one I went on about in my adventure to Mindo post) Unfortunately I was having difficulty with my phone so I was unable to check us both in at “The G Spot” so there were many potential lols lost there.

Anyway I digress this post is about the food and not the suss named places I ate at. I ordered the deluxe Salchipapas that came with french fries,beef sausage, onion, chilli peppers,mustard and was even served on a fancy wooden chopping board (Wooden chopping boards are fancy right?) From the moment it touched my taste-buds I knew that I had a new secret lover that I couldn’t tell Poutine about.


When done right I really enjoyed Salchipapas, however many fast food restaurants offered it and sometimes I was just like “Ummmm it’s just French fries with a couple of sausages on it” how is this classified as a dish?”  but regardless it was great because all throughout Peru and Ecuador I could eat fries guilt free in the form of Salchipapas and still be experiencing a Latin American dish *Self High Five*

But just so you know Poutine my tastebuds still find you the sexiest and the tastiest of all the fries based  meals…. For Now.

Whats your favourite fries based dish?

    We’ve also seen salcipapas all over Bolivia; they’re mad for it here too! You get little ladies jumping on the buses when they stop to let more people on and shouting out the virtues of their salchipapas!
