I ordered grilled pork. The portion was big and completely hidden with fried potatoes and tomatoes. The meat tasted earthy - not a good taste. I ate a little and left most of it. I have had 3 days of diarrhoea, cramps and nausea. Took...More

Ate here whilst looking to escape our hotel’s restaurant and experience some local Chipian flavours. We tried Las Tingas on the recommendation of both Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor, but my wife and I had different views on the recommendation. I had the pork in adobo...More

The food here was just what we needed upon our arrival here... It isn't the best food I've had, but it certainly was worth the money I paid for it. If you're in the market for reasonably quick and cheap food, this place won't leave...More
