In the narrow
and colonial streets of Potosi there is
an interesting variety of restaurants that mainly offer typical
pottages; on the other hand, they are only very few specialized
on international food. So keep this in mind and get ready for
the fascinating experience of feeling the aromas and try the flavors
of the land of the silver.
of typical food, one must mention the cazuela, a soup made with
peanuts and served with potatoes, meat, fish, rice or noodles;
the ají de pataskha, made with peeled corn and pepper and
served with pork meat; and the chambergos, flour rolls decorated
with milled sugar.
It is recommendable
not to ingest heavy foods during the first days of your stay,
because the digestion is slower in the cities located at several
thousands meters over the level of the sea. After getting acclimated
to the rigors of the Andes, you will be able to fully enjoy the
gastronomic delights of Potosi.
