Well, Hello there! So this afternoon we are at Parque Kennedy
and we are here for some dessert. We’ve been eating like pigs all day long but there is
still a bit of room left for a little something sweet, so we’re going to try Picarones. Look at this – I already have a bee following
me because of the honey. Isn’t that amazing? Woah. And we thought about getting two orders.
Haha. This will be plenty. Alright, so here we have our dessert. These
are Picarones and they are like fried rings. Fried dough made with sweet potato and pumpkin
and they have a sweet honey drizzled all over. And they’re uniquely Peruvian cuisine. Oh,
yes. So I’m just going to go for it and take a
bite. Dig right in. Mmmmm. These are so fresh. Wow. Really fluffy
and airy. Can you taste that honey? Oh, yeah. I sure can. And like they are so light I’ve
already finished half of one. I understand why they give you five. You can just devour
them in a few minutes. And we’ve got a guest who is interested as well. Hi, Kitty. Hello,
Mr. Meowzers. So as I mentioned previously, this is a uniquely
Peruvian dish. And as such there isn’t an English equivalent. I suppose we could call
it a Peruvian doughnut with honey. And so that is what we’re going with. And this is
my first bite. My first time to ever try this so I am really excited. I am sopping it up
in honey. Woo Hoo!. Honey syrup. Let’s try this. Oh my gosh. That is so good. You know what
it reminds me of? It kind of reminds me of a oversaturated waffle with maple syrup or
honey. It’s like where you pour like three times as much as you actually need on the
waffle and then you eat it. This is what it tastes like right here. Mmmm. I don’t mess around when I eat food. What
can I say. So this tasty dessert only cost us five Soles.
That would be one sole for each donut that we’ve already eaten. That is pretty affordable actually with the
exchange rate it would be about a dollar seventy-five and you do get a lot of food for that. So if you’re looking to pair this sweet treat
with a little beverage you can get something called Chicha which is a purple corn juice
that goes perfectly with it. So there are five of these but only two of
us. So who gets that third one? We split it down the middle Sam. Oh, I don’t agree with
that. Sleepy kitty. Meow. Meow. Meow. Meow. There are hundreds of cats in this park. Look
here is another one. Meow. Meow. That was a delicious sweet treat and we’re
going to be back at this park again very soon to film some more street food.
