If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, the majority of the south of Chile will be baffled by you, as meat plays a big role in the diet here. But Malasa Chai has your back. Come for good vegetarian food, delicious baked goods, fresh tea, and yoga on Wednesday nights.

For seafood and a Mediterranean-style menu, head to Almendra. Located lakeside, and not too crowded, the place is great for a late lunch or dinner, and also accommodates vegetarians. Also notable is the wine selection; your waiter or waitress will help you find the best drink to match your meal.

Café Danes

Tour de verano // Cafe Danes PV En uno de los rincones más lindos de nuestro querido país, esperábamos encontrarnos un producto a la altura del paraje místico del Sur. Luego de conversar con múltiples gordos sureños, debatir con hinchados personajes e incesantes llamados al guatón salinas, concluimos visitar el mítico café danés ubicado en la calle principal de Puerto Varas, local ya posicionado como la meca de los amantes de las arterias tapadas. Nos enfrentamos a un churrasco italiano agregado ají verde, recomendación expresa del mesero; al presentársenos el producto, las mariposas en la guata nos recordaron aquel primer amor de verano. Gran cantidad de un tierno churrasco, una palta formato mantequilla, el tomate en su máximo esplendor, todo acompañado de una curiosa pasta de ají verde con un picor digno de la Marlen Olivari: en el punto exacto para no volverse burdo. El problema señores nos dejó una llaga en el alma que persiste hasta el dia de hoy: tan nobles insumos se vieron manchados por la falta de seriedad con que se trabaja en la cocina; comimos una carne que se cayó en el tarro de la sal, sumado a una cáscara de palta encontrada en el sandwich, lo que perjudicó gravemente lo que podría haber sido un correcto 6,3. Al chef de este local, presidio mayor en su grado máximo: 11 meses alejado de la mayonesa como castigo. Si quiere derecho a recorrección, 2 años conversando con Ricardo Meruane. Nota calidad: 5,5 Precio calidad: 5,6 Precio : 5,400

Café Danes is nothing fancy, but according to the locals, it serves the best meat sandwiches and raspberry cake. Here you’ll feel like a local, in the cozy, home-like atmosphere. After, you’ll probably want to stretch your legs with a walk along the lake, which is close by.
