First, be apprised that the restaurant has moved. The address is now Mutualismo between Ocampo and Bravo, as someone mentioned, right behind Applebee's. They've only been there a few days. After looking at the menu, we simply asked the chef to bring us whatever he thought best. We started with round goblets arriving upside down on a hot wooden plank, turned over with steam pouring out of them and then filled with herb tea (something called damiana) The tea was wonderfully infused with the pine from the plank. Following that was an appetizer in sea shells and then a tamal siriano filled with rabbit, rice, and raisins among other things and then wrapped in a cabbage leaf. Then a quail stuffed with a luscious banana homemade yogurt mix and then a kind of lamb lasagna with tortilla instead of noodle. The meal was completed with an incredible dense mint flan served on a piece of shale with amaranth and powdered sugar. Each dish was more nuanced than I am giving it credit for.
As mentioned below, everything is organic, local and housemade. The yogurt, for example, is made with fresh locally sourced milk. These men are artists and are incredibly creative. You cannot know what is coming next. A similar tasting menu would be probably triple the price in the United States.
You should know that 1) I don't think any of them speak much English - at least I didn't hear any 2) if you want dinner you should make a reservation, which is easy to do via the reservation email address listed on their website 3) allow a couple of hours to enjoy the meal. They were thrilled that we had chosen to let them decide what to feed us and we felt we were being privately catered to.
We went with our two kids, 22 and 24 and they were absolutely delighted. What a find! If you're in La Paz don't miss it. Right now they only have five tables, four inside and one outside. They also serve breakfast and lunch without a reservation. The city would be well-served to cultivate this local treasure.
