  K' alaphurka washed down with local brew Potosina
by richiecdisc
 
 

This is a true local's restaurant with a low key ambience that does not belie how special it seems to those who eat there. Make no mistake, this is not run of the mill and you will never forget eating here. It's the kind of place that makes traveling special.

Favorite Dish: K' alaphurka is a spicy soup that comes out like molten lava, thanks to a heated stone that keeps it hot. It is served with steamed corns and full of what I imagine to be chiccarones, deep fried pig's intestines. Don't be put off by it, just like bacon bits in this setting! And only five bolivianos (less than a dollar).
