Paraguayan food is just delicious, I always gain a few pounds while there (theyÂ are well worthy ), not just because I love it but also because food is part of social life, and while there as a tourist, I dine out much more than I used to while living there.
My life there is awesome, every day is different and I try to go out to different places and to know more restaurants, cafes, bars etc.
When I arrived to Paraguay the first thing I asked my friends was to take me to a typical restaurant. They immediately took me to Churrasqueria Paulista which is Brazilian, and that happens all the time when an outside visitor arrives in Paraguay. I don’t know WHY people take them to Brazilian churrasquerias, that was so strange until I noticed the lack of Paraguayan typical restaurants.
I remember a very good paraguayan restaurant called Portiyu but unfortunately they closed years ago. Then I discovered this restaurant called TEMBI’U HE (Dr. F. Fernandez y Stma. Trinidad, Tel: 293 324) and I think it’s the only Paraguayan Restaurant available in Asuncion.
My favorite places to eat in Asuncion are: Bolsi, San Roque (very traditional place), Lido bar, Parrillada Roma, Carioca, La flor de la Canela, Camastro, Il Capo (pasta), andÂ Britannia Pub of course! Try the brochette de lomito in Britannia, it’s wonderful (it’s a fillet mignon beef for 2.5 $) and soooo delicious!!

InÂ major malls (Shopping del Sol, Mariscal Lopez Shopping , Mall Excelsior, Shopping Multi plaza) you will find food courts withÂ lots of fast food places like mc donalds, pizza hut, empanadas don vito, chinese food, paella, pasta, Pancholos. etc.
There are many cafes and empanadas places like Don vito, all over the city.
Try our best Ice creams in Sugar, 4D orÂ Freddo.
La Galeria is a great place to have some drinks and eat. ( I will talk about nite life soon).
Every day you can discoverÂ a new place to eat, and if you dare you can go eatÂ to Mercado 4 (it’s a popular market where you can find stuff at bargain prices). You will find anything from nice Chinese restaurants there to Asaditos (barbecue made on a grill on the sidewalk). The Mercado 4 deserves a special post that I will write soon! Disfrute!
