Cholados - a cool Colombian combo

JH Jill | Aug 26, 200304:13 PM

I think I have some sort of postarrhea lately, but I do want to urge you all to try this interesting and refreshing Colombian take-off on the snowcone or raspado. I had heard someone mention them on this board once but didn't know what they were. The one I had contained mango and guava juices (I think), granulated ice, condensed milk and pieces of banana, cantaloupe, orange, apple, coconut flakes and who knows what else - oh, a cherry. Strawberries are extra, and then there's a super combo. I got this tasty treat at a cholado window in a video store that you can identify on the sourh side of Northern Blvd. between 83rd and 84th by the bananas piled up inside or,usually, by the line of kids on the sidewalk. They also sell them at the Colombian bakery/deli next to Jahn's on 37th Ave. (80/81st).
