The Colombian concoction called a cholado (regular; $4) begins with a base of shaved ice — at Pecas y Más, where it's called "snowglass" ice, it's coarser than most — that's heaped with whatever fruits are on hand, then soaked with condensed milk. Here, bananas had the starring role; bit players included green apple, mango, melon (perhaps), shaved coconut, and a cherry. (See another version, from El Palacio de los Cholados, when strawberries were in season.)
Next time, I'll have to find room for the "Pecas" hot dog, which boasts not only bacon, onion, and tomato but also avocado sauce, potato chips, and quail eggs.
