WHERE AND WHAT TO EAT IN PUCóN AND VILLARRICA
In Villarrica and Pucon you can enjoy the same traditional Chilean gastronomy than in other southern cities, with dishes such as veal or chicken cazuela, charquicán, humitas, carbonada and estofado (stew), among others.
In this area the elements of the native Mapuche gastronomy has been appraised once again, known as Chilean and Mapuche fusion cuisine. This is achieved by adding new flavors to traditional preparations, such as myrtle and pine nuts, cooked in clay items for warmth and artisanal flavor preparations.
In the area fish like smoked salmon, obtained from fishing in lakes and rivers nearby are also consumed.
The pastry, which preserves the German style of the German settlers who arrived to the south of the country, can be found in fine chocolates, especially in Pucón-kuchenes and fruit tarts, cookies, etc..
