My Peruvian neighbors bring me this dish. Whenever they are having a party, they apologize for the noise in advance with a plate of whatever food they are serving, and often it includes this.


Wow, good neighbors!

Causa is delicious, I’m surprised it’s not better known outside of Peru. If you go to Peru and want to try it, go to Punto Azul in Lima. There’s (at least) two locations, but go to the one in San Isidro, not Miraflores. It’s less touristy, cheaper, and better (at least that’s what the locals say).
