When in Tarapota, be sure to try some of the regional specialties, such as juane (spiced chicken and rice in a banana leaf), cecina y tacacho (dried and salted meat served with ball of mashed fried plantains), patarashca (fish, chilis, onions and tomatoes roasted in a banana leaf) and ensalada de chonta (salad made with shredded local palm plants). Paiche and doncella are two regional fish that you can find prepared several different ways on many restaurant menus. Ceviche is also widely served, as are platters of battered and fried seafood. However, if you want a break from the local cuisine, Tarapoto also has some other options, ranging from places serving pizza and pasta to cheap burger joints to several good grill houses.
