I’ll have more of those chewy round things!
Blog Guy, I was recently in Bolivia, at a little restaurant on the outskirts of La Paz, and I had a WONDERFUL soup called “caldo de cardan.” ! really felt great afterwards and it even cured my hangover!
Say no more. Brown stuff in white gravy?
That’s it! What’s that yum-yum stuff in it?
Boiled bull’s penis and testicles. You find it in restaurants located near slaughterhouses. Use Yahoo Yellow Pages to find the nearest shop where you can buy the ingredients.
Are you kidding me! Aggghhh! How can I keep that from ever happening again?
