We’re in Bolivia tasting a superb dish known as “Pique a lo macho”, which I had never heard of until I stepped foot in Bolivia. It’s one of those dishes that will make you fall in love with Bolivia’s endless charms.  I headed to a restaurant called Santa Clara in Potosi to try Pique Macho which was 29 Bolivianas.  I had a local guide with me called Zelinda who gave me the lay of the land….I knew I had to try the Pique a Lo Macho. You don’t go to Bolivia and ask for beans on toast.
