Fodor's Expert Review Gustitos del Cura
Conveniently located on the Plaza de Armas, this popular restaurant is a good spot for a light meal, dessert, or a fresh fruit drink. The menu includes a selection of sandwiches and salads, tamales, and chicken cordon bleu, but most people come for the homemade pastries and ice cream made with castañas (Brazil nuts) and local rain-forest fruits such as aguaje and camu camu. Wooden tables fill the front room, next to the display cases, and there is a large patio in back. A Swiss priest known as Padre Xavier opened it, and the profits go to a home for at-risk children in Puerto Maldonado.
