Koygua

Mon Oct 23, 2017 11:22 pm

The Koygua is the Paraguayan villager, as we all know. But Koygua is a Paraguayan dish (More specifically Bife Koygua) consisting of steak topped with fried onions and one or two fried eggs on top. Why was this name chosen?

Cause like steak, you choke on them if you try to eat them too early.

Did it never, ever, cross your mind that maybe, just maybe, Bife Koygua means Beef made Koygua style?

Koyguá is a Guarani word roughly meaning farmer but with heavy rural connotations.

So, essentially Koygua is Guarani for "hillbilly"?
