We love any food item that arrives at the table so steaming hot that only a fool would disregard the steam and sizzle to dive right in. El Gallo Giro in Kuna is best known for the large volcanic bowls that are the perfect vessels to serve hot food to hungry patrons. The stone bowls called molcajetes were used by the Aztecs to grind condiments, make sauces and keep food warm for a long time. By the time you figure out the perfect plan of attack on your plate, the contents remain at the perfect temperature.
