    You don't hear much about it because South American food in general is just okay, nothing special. Brazilian food, for example, is bland at its worst and merely confort food at its best. Its core is colonial portuguese food with amerindian, african and later italian, arab and german influences. Rice and beans with roast/bbq or stew meat are a must everywhere here, we don't overdo with spices except some fried seafood dishes blacks cook in the northeast coast, snacks in the southeast and south are mostly fried pork, beef, chicken pie-like dumplings, a bit like scotch egg, and non-south american tourists find our desserts too sweet. Aside from that we mostly eat foreign foods like italian, arab and japanese if one lives in São Paulo.

    There are so many restaurants were you can order a dish and they pretty much serve you kitchen scraps because they don't know what that dish is the elderly owner wanted it on the menu tho
    We eat flan as dessert and they will burn the shit out of the syrup until it's bitter as frick and black and that's the way it's meant to be, they put two scoops of thick as frick dulce de leche on top which is disgusting since it's the exact opposite texture to flan, by the way argentinian flan is a sight to behold 16 eggs, a little bit of milk and an entire bag of sugar, I made actual flan using a french recipe it's night and day
    Nothing hot could ever be sold here, serve spicy food and people vomit
    90% of actual restaurants are Italians 0% of them are authentic

    Colombian here. As mentioned peruvian food is actually well known internationally. I think it's gross. It's basically chinese food with indigenous influences.

    Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela have very similar food. Mostly what you'd call poverty food. A lot of cheap carbs. We're lucky we have insane access to fruits and vegetables, which are not prepared in interesting ways so while our diet might be varied, it's not very creative.

    Colombian food in particular seems to have pretty bad reputation as very bland and boring. I think Gringos who visit generally just eat day menu garbage (Corrientazo) but there are other things to try. Pic related is Bandeja paisa. Our version of a-big-ass-meal. From the region around Medellin that you pedophiles might be the most familiar with.

      With venezuela we share arepas. Which are corn discs, thicker than tortillas and can be stuffed or eaten with stuff on them. Venezuelans almost always stuff them and have specific kinds. Colombians have more variety and they come in many shapes, sizes, colors and even sweet and salty. We stuff them with whatever the vendor has on hand or anything you feel like doing.

      Pic relate my favourite one. The dough itself is mixed with cheese and then you stuff more cheese in it. Very soft and slightly sweet.

      You are a moron and way overestimating the influence of the Chinese (Cantonese) in our cuisine. The majority of peruvian cuisine is influenced by native/Iberians and unironically Italians more than by Asians. You can think the food is dogshit I don't care but this nonsense is simply not true.

      you're right and it's a fact that makes me mad, because peruvians will relentlessly shill their "cuisine" but all they try to promote is derivative or outright stolen shit

      what are the three items you most associate with Peru? ceviche, pisco and lomo saltado

      >ceviche
      derivative as frick and invented by Japanese immigrants
      >pisco
      stolen from Chile, but never tell a peruvian this or they'll either cry or start yelling
      >lomo saltado
      shittier Chinese stir fry

      but if you've ever been to Peru and visited the local markets you'll see some crazy shit, hundreds of varieties of corn, potatoes with all the colors of the rainbow, tons of cereals and berries that i assure you've never heard of if you haven't been there. they have honest to god amazing ingredients but refuse to try and market them internationally out of some misguided need to aspire to be "high cuisine" or some shit.

        Venezuelans have more strict categories but I'm sure they also stuff whatever. They do lots of beans and different meats. But they do have specific names for their different stuffed ones (Pic related). We have names based on the regions where different kinds come from: Arepa boyacense, Arepa santandereana, Arepa paisa.

        Generally speaking in Colombia you put the same you'd put in a burrito. I always do beef, chicken, chicharron, chorizo, cheese, scrambled eggs and maybe lettuce. In desperation you can put whatever. My girlfriend is american and she has tried to do some heinous shit with arepas like jam and hot sauce for the sweet ones.

    Lots of anons highlighted the relative lack of authentic dishes and high amount of culinary syncretism from various countries in south american food. Here's another example. I had this meal some weeks ago here in São Paulo. Pic related is considered a timeless classic in this city but it's actually a lebanese food (that's why we call it a "Beirute") idea introduced when christian arabs started settling here around the 1910s. The basic concept is a large pita bread sandwich to be eaten with knife and fork rather than by hand. It may be ordered in many variations. This one I had contains short loin grilled beef, rocket leaves, pickles, tomato slices and american cheese.

    Can only comment about Uruguay and Argentina (because I fricking live there): a mix of Spanish and Italian cuisine basically. Also lots of red meat (it's a bit more expensive in recent years, but used to be cheaper than in Europe, so beef replaced a lot of traditional stuff).

    Some examples, like may others already mentions: empanadas, faina (farinata, that is usually eaten along pizza), asado, nioquis a la caruso (gnocchi , a type of pasta, with a cream souce made with mashrooms, ham and meat extract), chivito (a meat sandwich traditionally made with tenderloin) milanesas, etc.

    It's very good from what little I could compare when I traveled, but it's not "original", it's not going to surprise.
    Peru and Mexico probably have that spot of interesting and good food in latin america.

    A lot of it, today, has its roots in a mix of central American cuisine and west african cuisine. Expect a lot of starch with starch and some protein. Lile cassawa with rice, pasta, and a piece of fish. Expect a lot of empanadas, tortilla-based food, and soups.

    Beyond that, Brazil has a lot of variety, argentina has a lot of beef dishes and their own takes on Italian fare. Peru has ceviche and chinese/latin fusion (not uncommon fusion to be found in Argentina and Uruguay, too, by the way). Chile has cocaine served in the navel of a prostitute stripper, ofc. And so on.
