Additional information

We discovered that the Mondoguito a la Italiana has already been in Peru for more than a century and is a contribution of the italian immigrants to our gastronomy, since it is the Peruvian version of a very popular dish in Italy called “Tripa a la Florentina” which is also based on tripe and has tomato sauce and cheese.
