Authentic local cuisine

I really wanted to sample the local flavor of Santa Cruz during my visit, and this chain was a great way to do it. Chicken and beef, potatoes and yuca, rice with cheese, and beet salad were my favorites.

First off, beef in Bolivia is grass-fed. This means it is an entirely different flavor from corn-slop fed cattle. You have been bamboozled into thinking meat texture is how to define a good steak. It isn't, it is flavor. Any meat in Bolivia will offer 10 times spectacular flavor. Now the next trick is buying the right cut (lomito and... More

Every time I'm at Santa Cruz I enjoy visiting this place. It is the right place to try various traditional meals. If you are in a group it is a good choice to pick the traditional sampler which is good for about 4 people; however, if you are on a solo visit I would recommend the "majao batido".

You need to visit this place to experiment and try the local foods. It all tastes/looks home made but is surprisingly strong in flavors. I like the most the rice with the dried meat, a must. Recommended!

Really good food from eastern Bolivia. They have all the classical plates from Santa Cruz and Beni. As you might know, Bolivian food is all about meat. So if you are vegetarian, there is only salad for you.

We were only in Santa Cruz for one night and went here on a friend's recommendation. We had about 11 small dishes which were a variety of meats, rice, vegetables etc. This is a great place to go if you want to try Bolivian food and eat and eat and EAT. The Bolivian beer is quite nice too. One thing... More
