Cucurucho

During my brief vacation out at San Ber we made a quick trip to the famous 'Cucurucho' restaurant. Cucurucho is what you call an ice cream cone here in Paraguay. Many new to the language confuse it with 'cucaracha' which means cockroach, Ewww!

The little establishment was started years ago by a Canadian couple who introduced Paraguay to soft-serve ice cream.

It was the only place in Paraguay where you could not only find soft-serve ice cream, but a whole assortment of American style pies and goodies. People come from all over Paraguay to eat here.

The menu is basic with your typical burgers and fries which were also made American style, but the all around favorite are the pecan pies. Do you know how hard it its to find pecans in Paraguay?
Since then the business has been sold, but the new owners are doing a fairly good job at keeping up the standards. It's still our number 1 place to visit when we are out that way.
