This restaurant is extremely special, recreating ancestral food from the Aymara and Mapuche indigenous population. Peumayen uses many styles and techniques that have almost been forgotten, alongside local ingredients and native plants. Why not try something a little different, whether its alpaca, horse, or araucaria araucana (nuts from the monkey puzzle tree).

Tras un intento fallido de ir a (ojo que @jardinmallinkrodt abre a las 6!!) terminamos por tercera vez en @uncle_fletch 🤤🤤🤤, un lugar con mucha mucha onda, con excelente atención, y una variedad de cervezas impresionante 😱. Probamos bastaaaantes hamburguesas, entre ellas la Monster Truck (onion rings, tocino crujiente, queso cheddar, lechuga, tomate y salsa BBQ ahumada), la Hemingway Surf & Turf (tocino crujiente, camarones apanados en Panko, lechuga, tomate, queso mozzarella, salsa uncle fletch y mayonesa de ajo) y la Sleeping Beauty (cuatro hamburguesas con aros de cebolla, cebolla caramelizada, hojas de espinaca, tocino crujiente, queso mozzarella, salsa de queso cheddar y mayonesa de ajo, acostada en una cama de papas fritas😍). Los sabores no son novedosos, la carta es básica, pero los ingredientes son de excelente calidad lo que hace que la hamburguesa sea inigualable. La carne sin duda de las mejores y muy bien acompañada. Además, las papas increíbles, bien caseritas y crocantes. El pan también muy bueno, crocante por fuera y suave por dentro 👌🏼👌🏼. La Slepping Beauty es algo fuera de lo normal, la ves llegar y quedas en shock 😲. Es tan grande que es difícil de comerla, la combinación de queso mozzarella con salsa de cheddar es atómica y los aros de cebolla son sin duda los mejores de todas las hamburgueserías que hemos ido. La Hemingway buena, pero los camarones no se sienten, no pudimos disfrutarlo, no encajaron con la hamburguesa. Todo lo demás impecable! La Monster Truck muy parecida al estilo de la sleepy con sus mismos onion rings, la hamburguesa con ingredientes comunes pero lo que la hace diferente son la calidad de estos y sobre todo el tamaño, tal como lo dice su nombre representa un camión monstruo, se te hace un desafío terminarla. • • • PUNTUACIÓN (del 1 al 5): Hamburguesas: 🔥🔥🔥🔥 Atención: 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 Ambiente: 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺 • • • Precio: the sleeping beauty $11.900, the monasterio truck: 9.990 [son las más caras, las demás están alrededor de los 7.000] • Opción vegana/vegetariana: ✅🌱
