La Cerveceria


The first spoonful of locro puts us over the edge, this hearty Andean stew exactly what the doctor orders after our Fitz Roy circuit, a slow-cooked stew of meaty, potatoy, vegetable, tomato heaven, delectable perfection.

I think we eat this dish with eyes half-closed, so divine the taste, irreproduceable, if that’s even a word, simply because its produce hails from here, Andean potatoes and squash not privy to the international food chain, and for that, I am sweetly sad.

La Cerveceria may fall short of its claim, its beer a dismal cry from the artisanal depth of flavor we crave, but this evening soup more than makes up for the gap in beverage satiety, and when the unfortunate end to our bowls arrive, I miss the locro already.
