What: A very thin, round, brown wafer—almost like a flattened waffle cone, but lighter—that’s spread with sweet arequipe (Colombia’s caramel) on top or between two wafers to create a delicious dessert-sandwich.

Where: On the street just about everywhere (look for the stacks of wafers and tubs of arequipe).
