What to eat in Cochabamba
by: Chef Noly


Definitely check out the chicharron at Dona Pola's restaurant. She's famous for her chicharron. Other than that I would recommend trying one of the lunch specials at any local restaurant. When you have the lunch special you usually get a cold appetizer salad, soup, an entree, dessert and a beverage. If they have pique a lo macho that would be a good choice and look for one of my absolute favorites, peanut soup. Try mocochinchi, one of the other fruit waters or chicha morada to drink.

Visit the open-air market while you are there and look for some of the fresh cheese that Cochabamba is known for and snack on anything and everything, you're sure to have a great adventure.

While in Cochabamba make sure to take a good look at the trees, you may just see a hummingbird!

Have a wonderful trip!
