YES, WE HAVE NO BANANAS!
(They're PLANTAINS, not bananas.)
And you'll find them in every village market
and on every table, at most major meals.
With less sugar than their cousin, the banana,
plantains (platanos) are starchy and must be cooked.
A favorite side dish in Colombia are patacones,
plantains sliced and pounded, then twice fried
and served with fresh made salsa.
