Why bitter sweet? First as a tribute to two of Uruguay's most beloved palate pleasers. The bitter Mate which is enjoyed mostly as an afternoon beverage and shared with friends, and the sweet dulce de leche that is ubiquitous in nearly every dessert. Second, as a matter of simple fact. While living in Uruguay has been a treat, at times the food options have been limiting. But if there is a good food find out there, you can be sure I will tell you about it. Qué aproveche!
