Yuca Frita con Chicharron

Yuca Frita con Chicharron

This is the side-version. If you find the pickled cabbage too spicy then you might want to ask your server to put the cabbage and salsa on the side.

What is Yuca Frita con Chicharron?

Yuca Frita is made from a tasty root vegetable known as cassava. Cassava is a starchy root and so is similar to potato in terms of taste and texture, although the preparation method is more involved. It is first steamed and then deep fried to a golden brown. Cassava is a good source of calcium and vitamin C.

Yuca Frita can be described as a slightly sweeter, firmer version of potato and while a very different experience from french fries the two are comparable.

It is served topped with pickled cabbage salad, home-made salsa and chicharron, or pork chips.

Is it spicy?

The pickled cabbage salad is mildly spicy for some, so if you dislike spicy food entirely you might want to ask for it on the side.
