Angelmó's Seafood Platters

Mónica Pons Eduardo Epifanio

Cuisine based on seafood is one of the most tempting options in this Chilean confine and it is served in the most traditional and delicious varieties.

Angelmó's Cuisine - Puerto Montt

Puerto Montt smells like the sea. That is why it is appropriate to visit the sites where the spirit of the fishermen who set sail everyday into the productive waters of the bay is breathed in the air. The fish and seafood market and its nearby restaurants is a sample of the gastronomic options in the city.

The area where the products brought from the sea are processed is accessed right in front of the site known as Caleta Angelmó, getting past the amusing handicrafts fair. The movement is constant and so are the many voices crying out loud. Some wash their goods and get it ready on the large marble counters covered with ice. We asked about the species on display: conger eel, oysters, mussels, salmon, large oysters, picorocos and so on and so forth. Then we learned about preparation and recipes.

Such delicacies may be bought or ordered at some of the delis that work inside the venue, small diners hosted by ladies who cry out the names of the dishes they prepare to entice passers-by to try them.

We saw the dock where the fishing boats and the launches carrying passengers to Tenglo Island and other more distant islets are moored. The movement of the tides sometimes causes the boats to run aground.

With the idea of having lunch at that typical area, we walked on towards the non-luxurious restaurants lying on the first floor over the wooden stilts overlooking the island, the bay and the Calbuco Volcano. Diners have women's names, as it is the ladies who cook and cry out while showing their pots bursting with curanto or pulmay, chupes or soup.

Angelmó's Cuisine - Puerto Montt

A few meters away from the market, we spotted a restaurant that represents a reference point for good meals in Puerto Montt. On a very high level, with excellent decoration and well laid tables, we shared a memorable lunch with the family enjoying a fantastic seafood menu.

Without haste, we asked about some of the combinations and accepted the advice given by the waiter, used to assisting customers on their choices. While we waited for our orders, we tasted some home-baked bread, sopaipillas and Chilean pebre accompanied with the white wine we had chosen.

When the aroma finally let us know our dishes were ready, we were surprised at the variety of seafood in our servings. Large oysters, choritos, machas, locos and prawns were some of them. We also chose grilled and fried salmon and hake, which were simply delicious, as their garnishes.

It goes beyond saying that lunchtime was extended because we felt at ease and were tempted by dessert. We bade farewell to Puerto Montt feeling sure of having discovered the Chilean tradition of seafood in all its expressions.

Useful Data

Bear in mind

It is very important to bear in mind that some types of seafood are not available at certain seasons. This is due to the fact that their exploitation is forbidden because of the red tide. Besides, uncooked meals (served with lemon) should be avoided in order to prevent serious gastrointestinal disorders.

It is advisable not to go around the port area at night. If you do, you had better do it in groups. Do not leave your belongings on your vehicle. Take a taxi instead of walking.
