"Guide to La Paz Restaurants"
You can find many restaurants throughout the city of La Paz. A quick way to find a restaurant is to go along the El Prado, which is the main street in central La Paz. There are some great places to eat along this street that offer excellent value for your money.
The restaurants in La Paz will be much cheaper compared to what you pay at home. Much cheaper in fact, probably half of what you pay at home. Even the fancy restaurants are reasonable priced compared to what you'll find in your home country. Making it all the better reason to travel Bolivia, especially if your on a tight budget.
Since La Paz is a big city, you'll find that there is a wide variety of international foods and of course the local Bolivian food. La Paz offers a wide variety of eateries, from fine dinning to street vendors. All of which are worth a try.
In the cheapest ranges, such as tiny store front eateries or street vendors, their isn't much variation. Most is local Bolivian food that serve saltenas, empanadas, chicken and beef.
Most of the fancier restaurants and mid-range restaurants in La Paz are at the lower end of the Prado, around the vicinity of Plaza Isabel and Plaza Avaroa. Where you'll find a variety of international foods, such as pastas, meats, veggies, soups, salads and of course the local food.
For a La Paz restaurant that has Bolivian music you can attend a peña. A pena is an Andean or highland Bolivian music show that features the folklore music of the Andes played on typical Andean instruments.
Most penas play six days a week and some just have shows only on Friday and Saturday nights. Most start at 9 or 10pm and can last until 1am. Admission ranges from 30Bs to 50Bs and usually includes the first drink free. A popular pena in La Paz is Restaurant Peña Marka Tambo or Pena Restaurant Huari (see below), both of which puts on a good show Thursday through Saturday nights.
