Coyoty eats Peruvian shrimp and ice cream.

At Cora Cora Restaurant in West Hartford, CT.

Chicharron de Colas de Camaron with fries

Chicharron de Colas de Camaron with fries. “Juicy shrimp tails seasoned with garlic, salt, pepper, egged, floured then fried. Served with house sauce, fried cassava or fresh fries and red onion salad.” I finally get a salad with enough onions in it! It had a cilantro dressing on it, which was perfect.

Lucuma ice cream

Lucuma ice cream. “Peruvian ice cream made with lucuma fruit.” Lucuma is an Andean fruit that looks like a cross of a peach and an avocado. The ice cream tasted like a cross of cherry, peach, and cantaloupe. It came with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, caramel, cherry, cookie stick, and mint garnish.
