Colombian Merengon originates from Colombia, where it’s cherished as a traditional sweet delight. Although some claim that it is similar to pavlova we are not going to go into that here, but suffice to tell you that it is a delicious treat and having it with an exotic South American food will make it for an unforgettable experience.


This Colombian delicious dessert boasts layers of crisp meringue filled with fluffy whipped cream and a medley of fresh fruits.
