It’s amazing how names and styles for some foodstuffs vary. Take our hugely popular sopapillas – one of our most popular desserts. Depending on where you are in the world, you might also find variations on this theme presented as a fried pastry or quick bread and called sopaipa, sopaipilla, or cachanga.
In Argentina, they’re also called supaipa or torta frita (the latter is also used across the River Plate in Uruguay). In Chile, they’ve been a food staple for three centuries. In Peru, you’ll find both sweet and sour alternatives.
