Glutton in Uruguay’s Colonia del Sacramento

Welcome to YQtravelling’s FoodFriday. The day of the week when I show off some of the lovely eats I had while travelling.

Today we are going to the little town of Colonia del Sacramento for just a bite and a drink.

In the past two weeks, I revisited the main meals and snacks of Argentina. Today’s post won’t be long because I was in Uruguay for only a day. The trip to Colonia del Sacramento was a visa run for me and also a chance to add another stamp in my passport.

As I didn’t have a lot of funds in Uruguay, I mostly walked around and avoid the all-you-can-eat barbeque restaurant. I did visit a hole-in-the-wall stall for lunch.

The menu was confusing and I didn’t want to eat the things I recognize. In the end, I chose one of the cheapest item off the menu: Chorizo Ottonello completo

It turned out to be a sausage burger with eggs and pickles. It was so thick that the stall owner stuck a pick to hold the thing together.

The taste was divine. The oiliness and saltiness of the sausages are smothered by the buns and the sourness of the pickles. Or maybe I was really hungry from walking around.

Before my amazing burger, I hid in a café that had portable fires because the weather then was horribly windy and cold. While I was in the café, I ordered a café latte and took forever to finish it, not because the drink was terrible but because it was nice sitting in a building with a fire.

That was all that I ate in Uruguay, before I leave, here is a photo of Uruguay money.
