The food is placed in a deep cauldron filled with soup spices and charcoal coals underneath to keep the heat. Around the cauldron is a row of pork on stick and small bowls of garlic and chilli as a spice.

Preparing wet thar dote htoe requires some simple process. The first thing is to clean all the meat very thoroughly, the next step is to slice the big meat into small pieces. Each piece is stabbed using a bamboo stick where each stick contains a line of meat.

The next step is to boil the meat for a certain time in a pot of water and add a touch of sugar, seasoning, and soy sauce before steaming the innards until cooked to a smooth flavor. The sauce is harvested from the vapor that appears at boiling by adding a little sugar and soy.

Wet thar dote htoe is displayed on top of a specially designed cushion as a pan cap, although each seller has variations in the presentation. Shoppers crowded around the buffet-style meal. Each stick is dipped in sauce before it is fed into the mouth.

El Paraíso

El Paraíso is a site of mysterious ruins built in the Late Preceramic or Cotton Preceramic period (3500-1800 BCE) or an aceramic site of 0.58 sq kilometers in Chillon River Valley, San Martín de Porres District, Lima Province, Peru . The area was once occupied briefly by a group of cultures for at least 300 to 400 years and the estimated population is 1500 and 3000 people.

The ruins of the Andean Preceramic stone structure have long been a debate among archaeologists calling the Late Preceramic period, while Fréderic Engel (1957) refers to Cotton Preceramic. Pozorski and Pozorski (2008) argue El Paraíso is an "aceramic" site because at that time many other areas have ceramics.

The purpose of the site is also still mysterious given the lack of sediment, the presence of burial or grave areas, and the construction of thick walls consisting of rocks dug in local hills which confirm the theory that the site is not a residential or domestic complex. The evidence precisely promotes…
