Chicken Bum and Fucking House – what´s this?

Blimey what´s this in #Cochabamba…a new dance craze for Bolivia & south America perhaps? Well NO actually, just some bizarrely named cafes and restaurantes!
We have no idea why these places have the names they have, or if their owners are at all conscious of the implications? Clearly the authorities have no concerns, but one can´t imagine seeing these in the UK.
Being veggies we´ve not been in either to check them out, as one thing that´s for sure is that the menus are for meat eaters. Indeed in the towns & cities of Bolivia that we’ve seen, the consumption of chickens in particular, by the millions, reigns supreme. Be they roasted, grilled or however else you cook them, the pavements and cafes/restaurants are full of them.

However we cannot complain – Cochabamba has a decent range of veggie/vegan places! Guided by the Happy Cow website, and our own wanderings, we found a decent selection in the slightly alternative (bohemian?) area around calle Espana & Ecuador near the centre. Special mentions for Tulasi 2, on calle Junin corner with Colombia (4 course lunch menu for 20BOB or under 3 quid), and the best we found was MENTA on calle Espana (3 course lunch menu for 21BOB plus a selection of fine other dishes day & night for 20-35 BOB…even some decent humus with falafel). Yum Yum, no need to go hungry here!
Meanwhile here´s those strange names in all their full venue gory glory…YUK!
