Although every few week the menu usually varies, there are dishes that have been left at the request of the public and are a must of Lo Que Hay.
In the first step: Toasted Yucca of tuna carpaccio with onion ceviche! Followed with Grilled chicken prey bathed in cream of potatoes and tubule sauce, accompanied by crispy potato thread! For dessert, the must is the scraped ice (yes ice!) served with condensed milk and milkshake. It comes in three flavors: passion fruit, tamarind or guava.
