Kapallaq is a restaurant that serves great food. It is not unusual to see the owner (and chef as well) going between the tables asking if everything is fine. They have the best "sudado" in town which is a stew of fish. I highly recomend...More

Local seasoning and aforetime recipes. The Kapallaq is a particular space. It is not a "cebicheria" nor is it a seafood restaurant properly, and it is the first thing one should know when visiting it. The menu is extensive and Spanish and Italian influences coexist alongside versions of the most traditional dishes of the national pot, all with the personal touch of Luis Cordero, the executive chef.
