(yuca con chicharron from Latino Grill, Pigeon Forge)
They can't all be winners. Part of being adventurous is trying things that you may ultimately find repulsive. This is a photo of a Honduran dish that looked promising because it was made with cheese, avocado, and lime. Who doesn't like that? But it was the pork skin, a non-benign type unlike the kind found in bags at the grocery store next to the chips, but rather like the pig had met its demise in the alley behind the restaurant. The sauce had a pungent, fermented smell that I could not get past and although I tasted the dish, I did not eat much.
This was my first experience with Honduran cuisine so I am not sure if this typical of all Honduran cuisines or just this restaurant. Baleadas, a Honduran tortilla filled with beans, egg, sour cream, and cheese were also on the menu and something I might give a shot on a subsequent visit. Anyone else ever tried Honduran food?
