Have you ever heard of Acorda a Alentegana? What about Gambas al Ajillo? If so you know you’re in for a special treat. The William Penn Bistro struck gold once again. The new menu features Central/South American food, and was launched three weeks ago.  

We are working on global cuisine in our curriculum. We realized we always do Mexico as our Spanish food so we all decided to do South American as a class,” said senior Brent Hillard.  The Steak & Chorizo Empanadas was one of the more popular foods , chorizo is pork sausage highly seasoned especially with chili powder and garlic.

The next menu is South/Central American dessert. One item is Suspiro Limeno-Creamy “a manjar blanco carel base topped with a huge dollop of italian meringue with port and cinnamon.” You might also emjoy Chaji, which starts from base and peaches.
