This is another meal that we have tried in Colombia. Our hotel in Cartagena was one in one of the poorest part of the city – La Boquilla. We were so hungry that night and after game session and bottle of wine which we had with our polish friends we decided to go out and eat something. It was pretty late and we did not want to go to the city centre which was 20min away by bus. On the main street in La Boquilla we could see that everybody who lived there was just spending time outside chatting to the neighbors, eating and listening to music. I remember very well how scared we were walking there for the first time. In the end, there was nothing to be afraid of – those poor people were just having fun. We have ordered piece of pork which was served with two sauces – one of them was chimichurri. The name of the other one I do not remember, as soon as I have tried chimichurri, I did not any other one! After we got back to Germany I was searching for some recipes, because I wanted try making it on my own. I found out that this sauce comes from Argentina, but it is served in all South American countries. The Colombians add cilantro to the chimichurri.
