Yucca Root


Do not say “yuck” about yucca!   Here it is at the Grand Central Market in downtown.  Reminds me of one of the creatures in Guillermo del Toro’s “Laberinto del fauno” (Pan’s Labyrinth).   In its peeled, boiled and fried form, yucca is a popular South American dish.  I’m a fan of the yucca served in bandeja paisa platters at some of my favorite Colombian restaurants, such as Chibcha, La Fonda Antioquena and Meson Criollo.
