Peruvian Tacu Tacu

Tacu Tacu

Pan-fried Rice and Beans flat cake

Tacu Tacu was invented by African slaves that worked on the haciendas during Colonial times using leftovers to make a hearty and substantial meal. A mixture of rice, beans, bacon, onions and spices is formed to a thick pancake and stir-fried.

It is served as a meal for itself or with a steak, fried banana and topped with a fried egg. Tacu Tacu is also often used as a side dish for Lomo Saltado.

An Afro-Peruvian specialty you shouldn't miss. Delicious!
