Delicious “Snowchi” Brings Peruvian Cuisine To New Jersey!
Have You ever tasted delicious Peruvian food? I recently had the pleasure and it was delicious. There is a new taste in town and it's bringing delicious Peruvian treats to you courtesy of Sniowchi.
Snowchi is the Peruvian cuisine food truck that is the dream of Gianella and Andrew. According to their website, "We decided to serve Peruvian food because it's the one that we enjoy the most!" Gia was born in Lima, Peru before moving to America. "One day, we began reminiscing back at the years before COVID started, when we used to have people over for parties and gatherings. We smiled at the memories of everyone having a great time and eating the delicious noms that Gianella would make for everyone at our home."
Let's talk about the food. Snowchi has some delicious Peruvian treats for you to try like:
PAN CON CHICHARRON: Pork sandwich with sweet potato slices and salsa criolla (Peruvian onion relish). Served with a side of FREE coffee with this order.
