Be they freshly flipped parathas or à la minute obleas, it's fun to watch your food being made, by and large. When the setting is right you may even be able to customize your order — a little less of this, a little more of that.
Raw intestines, at least for me, were far less appealing until the grill had done its work. I'd been enticed into an order by the enthusiasm of another fellow and the sight of his bowl, to which mine ($10) — filled out with corn, beans, chunks of potato, and a slice of fat sausage in which potato was prominent — ultimately bore a likeness. As for the intestine, from some other Ecuadorian vendors I've found it almost inedibly rubbery; here the sliced rounds were lightly charred and enticingly chewy. The gusto of that previous fellow was confirmed by my own.
