Leticia Amazonas is a small town located on a tri frontier (Colombia-Peru-Brasil) region but big in gastronomy and a local mixture of different flavors. From tasting a fried meat filled Mojojoy or even a traditional Pirarucu Ceviche.
Chagara da Coruga
This is a restaurant located just 20 minutes from the kilometer 7 in pure nature. It’s run by a famous local chef and my friend called Raimundo Panduro. They make one of the best “Grilled Piranha with an Amazonian Sauce”. Everything you eat at this restaurant is 100% organic.
El Santo Angel
We will definitely recommend this restaurant if you want to try one of their famous dish “Cassava Crust Pizza” or Meat Panzarottis. This place is unique with local band playing Fridays and Saturdays. You must try their “Jamaican Flower Lemonade”.
This restaurant is a contemporary fusion with local Amazonian gastronomy. Their best dishes are the “Muqueados” (Smoking Meat) or “Beiju” (Casabe Tortilla filled with meat). They even offer at special times Mango Lemonade or local fruits such as Copoazu, Araza or Camu Camu Juice.
Hitler and Mary Grilled Fish
Located in front of Hotel Anaconda, Hitler has the best grilled fish in town and you can find him or his wife from 3 pm up to 7 pm. We will recommend to try a “Catfish” or a “Bocachico” with rice, hot spice and fariña with a “Crush Salpicon”.
