Amazing place for contrasts and history and absolutely lovely and very cultured people.
And the food-- surprisingly, if you eliminate the lobster and exotic fruits, there are very few allergen laden foods. Much roasted chicken and pork. Peppers and onions. And not cheese over everything or in foods. I was happily surprised. Lots of rice and beans-- deliciously prepared in many fashions as well as chickpeas and canned asparagus!
So it's not a complete-- off-the-list place.
More when I return.
