Pollo broasted y la brasa a gringo nightmare
(Santa Cruz de la Sierra)
I'm a U.S student living in Santa Cruz de la Sierra this summer/technically winter. I've lived in this city for two weeks now and with the Fourth of July coming and getting really homesick. I'd just like to put in my commentary on the recommended food above that I Googled "where to find a hamburger in Santa Cruz de la sierra."
Bolivians do not believe in beef. Now don't get me wrong, they have dishes with beef in them but the Bolivian hamburger is a sad sad thing that makes the hungry, homesick gringo cry.
If one is a fan of deep fried chicken WELCOME TO YOUR PARADISE! Pollo broasted = that same type stuff your southern grandma brought to pot lucks at church. Typically the meal comes with fried plantains, french fries (ask for more salt), fried rice, this delicious salsa that I'm a Mexican at stomach and is quite comparable and your typical South American really sweet ketchup.
If someone would please tell me where I can find a real hooray USA burger I'd pretty much be forever grateful.
