Sopocachi is a centenary neighborhood, created due to the growth of the city of La Paz at the beginning of the 20th century, the large houses built there at that time had a colony architectural design of "country houses". With the time passing by, at the end of the last century, due to the presence of artists and intellectuals who resided in the place Sopocachi became in the "bohemian" zone of La Paz, as well as by the presence of the Escuela de Bellas Artes (School of Fine Arts); in the area the house of Marina Nuñez del Prado (1908-1995) is located, she is the greatest Bolivian world recognized sculptor.

Unfortunately population growth and different offices, both from public institutions and private companies, have pushed to demolish many of the centenary houses and replaced them by modern buildings and shops.

However, architecture is only one of the visible expressions of history, Bolivia´s past, present and future are also revealed by its magnificent gastronomy, so that our country is positioned among the most interesting in the world (At her article, Mary Holland from BBC explains why Bolivia is one of the new world´s gastronomical destinations among Peru). Our food is represented by a hughe variety of ingredients, derived from the various Bolivian ecosystems; Sopocachi offers a wide range of restaurants, bars and street food which are vivid expressions of Bolivia's excellent culinary tradition.

The corner of 20 de Octubre avenue and Fernando Guachalla street, which strives to preserve its heritage architecture, has 3 exquisite gastronomy restaurants:

  • Ciclik Restaurant, Honest Global Food
  • Charque del Valle Restaurat
  • Sopocachi Truck Stop

 

Ciclik Restaurant, Honest Global Food

With great visibility because it is located in the corner, with a varied "criollo" (creole) menu such as Menudito (meat with sausages), "Pesque" (quinoa with cheese), Quesumacha (mainly broad beans and yellow bolivian chili: "ají") and the delicions trout, the most wanted fish in the Andean area around Lake Titicaca.

The restaurant´s menu also includes international dishes (dishes from 11 different regions of the world), vegetarian options and handcrafted beer.

 

Restaurante Charque del Valle

Está especializado en platos típicos de Bolivia, principalmente uno de los clásicos de la comida criolla: El Charque (carne seca-deshidatada), plato típico de ciudades como Cochabamba, Oruro y Potosí, en estos dos últimos departamentos ¡es común que el Charque sea de carne de llama!. El restaurante cuenta en su menú, por su puesto, con el Charque como la recomendación de la casa, pero también ofrece Chicharrón de Cerdo, Pique Macho (carne de res con cebolla, papa y locoto) y Silpancho (carne apanada con arroz, huevo, papa y pico de gallo).

 

Sopocachi Truck Stop

La Paz no está excenta de este gran movimiento gastronómico que representan los "Food Truck" y Sopocachi cuenta con esta excelente alternativa para el gusto variado: pizzas, hamburguesas y comida vegana, todas dentro de la oferta de este festivo ambiente gastronómico, entre ellos destacamos a "Ekeko" el food truck que cuenta en su menú con el delicioso Chicharrón de Llama.

 

 

En tu visita a La Paz, esta esquina es una de las "Top" del buen gusto, te invitamos a degustar esta excelente comida boliviana y también pasear por Sopocachi que es, tal vez, el barrio con más "carácter" en toda la ciudad.

 

Bonus track:

A unos metros de nuestra esquina gastronómica "del buen gusto", se encuentra el restaurante alemán Kuchen Stube, uno de los de mayor tradición en Sopocachi, aunque su especialidad es la repostería, cuenta con una interesante oferta de platos internacionales y nacionales.
