Fodor's Expert Review Las Islas

$$ Cochabamba Dinner

This late-night street-food option, with various stalls set up along the road selling local classics, is the place to get a taste of the famed Cochabambino gastronomy. Particularly worth trying is the silpancho (breaded steak cutlet, served with an egg on rice and fried potato, and topped with a tomato chili salsa) or even better, the aptly named trancapecho, which you could roughly translate as a chest blocker—the already carb-loaded beast of a silpancho put into a sandwich. Though it is street food, there is a really high turnaround, so it is generally safe, fresh, and always tasty. Ask any taxi driver and they'll get you straight here. The stalls are usually set up from 8 pm and keep serving until the early hours of the morning.
