Hi from Montreal,
I am planning a trip to San Pedro in a few months and am doing research to find as many local food and drink specialities as I can. Yes, I am a foodie. ;)
I found mention of "haloja", a fermented maize drink made with algarrobo (sounds similar to a flavored chicha), but I have yet to find a place in and around San Pedro that would serve this. Does anyone know where I should look for this?
Also, are there any chicherias in SPA? I know Chile is not where chicha thrives the most in South America, but since SPA is close to Peru and Bolivia, I was wondering if there was a place in town where I could sample this drink (which I've never had before).
