Meaning of queque

Danilo Enrique Noreña Benítez


They're the same coconut paledonias. In Colombia they are striped coconut biscuits and panela scraped and flavored usually with cinnamon. Coquitos or cokes. They are also called kekis or kekes and many consider it an anglilicism by Cake. Many parts of the Caribbean are also prepared. In Panama and Mexico it means tail, tail, butt, buttocks.



In the lunfardo of the nineteenth and early twentieth century it was "brothel", and also used much its queco variant. It may come from the meaning of "caress, caress" as an irony (or not so much), but it more a deformation and reduction of chbebe. See quilombo .
