Bolivian Gastronomy

Bolivian cuisine is the result of a mixture of indigenous and Spanish traditions. The country offers a varied cuisine, based essentially on starchy foods, poultry, meats and vegetables. Meat is cooked with rice, potatoes and shredded lettuce and dressed with a spicy tomato sauce called llajwa. You have to try some of these culinary highlights:
  • Anticucho: meat dish consisting of small pieces of meat skewered and grilled.
  • Lomo Montado: fried sirloin steak served with fried egg and chopped tomato on top.
  • Sajta de Pollo: a Bolivian dish consisting of chicken, onion, tomato, peas and yellow chilies. It is usually seasoned with parsley, celery, black pepper, garlic and cumin.
  • Lechón al Horno: the most popular Bolivian version of pork roast, which generally uses a suckling pig as the star ingredient. The meat is marinated in a combination of oil, vinegar, garlic and spices.
  • Piqué macho: is a Bolivian dish consisting of a layer of fried potatoes buried under a mound of minced meat, sausage, eggs, cheese, onions, bell peppers and chiles.
  • Fricase: is a Bolivian-style spicy pork soup served with potatoes and corn.
