Parrilladas El Bijao - Restaurant Tarapoto - Peru

Since 1985, doña Betty’s family has prepared typical Amazonian cuisine for Tarapoto’s population and the few tourists who happen to stumble across it. This restaurant is a simple affair: In the front of the indoor dining hall, Betty and her kin prepare classics like cecina (dried meat), locally made chorizo (sausage), patarashca (fish soup prepared in a bijao-leaf bowl) and majaz (agouti), as well as pork and chicken. All come with a side of tacacho (smashed plantain with pork cracklings), yucca, boiled plantains or maduros (fried, ripe plantains). As well as an assortment of jungle-fruit drinks, El Bijao also serves homemade masato (yucca chicha). Open Monday-Saturday 6:30-10 :30 p.m.
