We have created the first ever ‘Gastronomic City Tour of Punta Arenas’! This tour is designed for travelers and food lovers who want to taste their way through the Southern most city on the American continent!
We learned how Punta Arenas’ artesian microbrewery Cerveza Hernando de Magallanes creates their 3 different brews;
Ate choriqueso and drank leche con platano;
And explored the diverse uses of calafate.
We finished the tour eating king crab empanadas at the best local seafood restaurant in Punta Arenas. Along the route, we visited the Plaza de Armas, the Municipal Cemetery, and Cero de la Cruz, for a view of the Strait of Magellan, Punta Arenas, and Tierra del Fuego.
Tours every saturday at 9:00am, 8-people maximum. Contact us for tour reservations or to inquire for private tours.
Last week On the Road went to an old favorite, the Peruvian restaurant Suspiro de Limeña in Punta Arenas. We like the restaurant for the comfortable interior and their strong pisco sours, but most of all for their ceviche. It is lemony, filled with fresh fish and seafood, and has a touch of spice. We tried a new dish this time, octopus with a cream-olive sauce. Tasty, but the octopus lacked a desired freshness. For the main dish (sorry, no picture because we at it too quickly!) we shared a generous portion of congrio, battered and fried to perfection.
If you are in the city and looking for an interesting, high-quality, and not overly expensive restaurante, we recommend you take a taste of what Suspiro de Limeña has to offer.
In Puerto Natales you will find the comfortable, lively, spacious-cabin-feeling brewery Baguales. Their two house brews are a Pale Ale and a Dark Ale, and sometimes you can find a limited addition ale. In addition to tasty artisan brews, the food menu caters to foreign favorites, serving dishes such as pulled-pork quesdillas, chicken popcorn, and their signature hamburger.
$$ Food prices are between 4.000 – 8.000 pesos (US $8.00 – $16.00).
