There are plenty of food options in Cochabamba - from cafĂ©s, to local food, to sophisticated international cuisine. Many of the restaurants serving local cuisine can be found along Avenida BalliviĂˇn (the Prado), while there is a range of international eateries Around Calle EspaĂ±a, and a mix of both on El Boulevar in the Recoleta district of the city. CafĂ©s and pastelerias, found all over town, are the best places for an early morning coffee and pastry.
Markets are a great place to pick up a cheap meal or a freshly made fruit juice â€“ try the Mercado 25 de Mayo on the street of the same name, near the main plaza. This is also a great place to try chicha, the fermented maize drink for which Cochabamba is famous for. There are also a number of pollo al spiedo (chicken baked on a spit) restaurants in this area, which offer economical meals, and are open on Sundays.
