Last saturday I was on a culinary world trip through Cologne with my friend Katja. :)
We started at “Hola Mundo” – a Latin American Shop at Luxemburgerstr. 13
The owner (Mercedes Adjelleh) is originally from Peru and showed us some typical food and drinks from her home country. A lot of different sorts of corn – even purple corn! – and potatoes (mostly dried ones, that you have to pickle in water over night before you can prepare a meal with it).
There was a little room behind the shop where Mercedes had prepared some Peruvian food for us :) which was extremely tasty! A huge piece of cassava (in german “Maniok Wurzel”) which looked like a white potato and was served with peanut-potato-meat sauce. Extremely yummy!
We had some time to browse through the store and after everyone had bought some mementos we continued our journey.
