Lapaz Bolivia Food
In this post I will tell you what to eat in the best city in the country, what not to miss and how to eat it safely.
A full-day tour in La Paz is one of the most popular activities in Bolivia, from Cusco to Copacabana and Puno. There are two ways to take the bus: You take the Bolivia Hop Bus or take the bus to a restaurant, which serves as a good alternative to the more expensive private buses in the city. As we continue to travel through La Paz, we will switch to public transport and travel by car, train, bus or taxi.
In La Paz, this dish is served very early in the morning and is tasty all day long and is served with oruro chunos. Bolivian dish made of boiled potatoes, fried yucca, rice, beans, onions, garlic, coriander and chilli peppers, and it is delicious.
In La Paz, La Pacena Saltena (El Hornito) is the best choice, but the recipe varies slightly in the country. Another popular street food found in LaPaz, it is a staple of the Bolivian food scene in general.
If you prefer to eat there every time, Gustu is probably the best option, but I am sure you have been told more about it than I have. If you want to taste authentic local cuisine in La Paz, what places would you recommend to your friends who want to taste authentic Bolivian food for themselves?
Our tour of La Paz starts at Plaza Murillo, where we meet our guide and go to a local restaurant to dive directly into Bolivian cuisine.
These are some of the most common meals and snacks found on the streets of La Paz, and they are part of a series of street food tours organised by the organisation Suma Phayata Street Food, which is also featured in a number of local television programmes (more to come soon!), offering a wide range of food and drink, and teaching vendors how to run a more efficient shop. The company also runs a project called "Suma Phaysata" (well cooked), which focuses on teaching and inspiring gastronomic tourists who want to explore Bolivia. This is the first in a series of "street food" tours organized in collaboration with the company owned by the Gustu restaurant in LaPaz.
The most popular street snack in Bolivia is the Saltena, an empanada - like pasta filled with braised meat (chicken or vegetables) and boiled eggs (tucumana), you can find on the streets of La Paz and in many other parts of the country, although the meat is not on the menu. In contrast to many other street dishes in Bolivia, some Saltenerias offer vegetarian saltenas, so that you can enjoy them even if meat is not on the menu.
Pastele (queso) is the street food of La Paz, which is loved by the three of us. Pastele, pastels is a traditional meal originally from Oruro and is enjoyed in many parts of the country, especially in the north and south of Bolivia. In every region of Bolivia there are slight variations of this fried pork dish, but it is always accompanied by corn on the cob (llajwa).
Tucumans are our deepest friends, empanadas (pasta), which are actually native to Tucuman in Argentina and are usually filled with boiled eggs. They are popular in South America and are eaten in so many parts of Argentina, Chile and Brazil. It is simply a traditional Bolivian street food that can be eaten as a snack at any time of day and makes you full. In Argentina they are called chipas, in Chile chicharron, a closed, triangular pastry filled with various ingredients and traditionally minced meat.
It starts with a traditional Bolivian lunch, usually in the form of chicharron, a small plate of rice, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, peppers, garlic and a few other vegetables.
With such a delicious flavor, not to mention low prices, it is hard to wonder why Bolivia is the only Latin American country where McDonald's flops, wraps up, and pulls out. Empanadas queso can be baked, fried or baked with an intensely savoury filling and cheese. You can find them at the many food stalls lining the streets of Bolivia, but you can find them selling sandwiches all day long, offering different meats and even fried onions. The recipe comes from a famous recipe in South America, the Bolivian version of the famous chicken-egg sandwich.
La Paz is not famous for its restaurants, but there is perhaps no better way to discover Bolivia's high altitude capital than to explore its cuisine. This cuisine is served in a variety of flavors and styles, from sweet and savory to spicy and spicy, and it is making waves even in Peru, our neighbor.
Finding the best restaurants can be difficult, but if you know where to look, you will find good food and cuisine in La Paz. If you are looking for a place to enjoy the great Bolivian and international cuisine, find good street food and relax for the night, then LaPaz is the place for you. You can also pick up good food on the streets of the city by finding lists that are available in each region. When in Bolivia, enjoy some of Bolivia's most popular street dishes, such as the delicious BolIVian staple, and discover it in the form of deep-fried pastries packed with meat and vegetables.
