Last night I was reading “Green eggs and ham” to my little daughter when I thought of a unique place that is a must if you truly want to discover a traditional place in Punta Arenas.
Since 1932 this small take away has been a spot where people from all social background, religions, work lines, football teams and schools congregate with one thing in mind: “Choripan y leche con platano” It is one of those places where a dad would take his son or daughter for some quality time. But above all, it is the one place that defines simplicity when eating out.
When you enter kiosco Roca the first thing you notice is a bar where you can sit and where most of the time there are people from a near by office waiting to take some choripanes back to work. Then you look at the decoration, because this kiosco has an impressive collection of “Universidad de Chile football team” objects.
I mentioned “Green eggs and Ham” because the combination of the Chorizo (hard pork sausage) with the milk with a banana blended in, might sound quite aggressive to the liver. Yet, we believe that there is a charm that protects all those who eat here from any kind of digestive problem.
All the ingredients are fresh because they only sell 3 thousand units per day and with the high demand there are no left over.
So come and discover green eggs and ham in Punta Arenas
