Puerto Montt is Chile's seafood capital. If you're feeling adventurous, try a Chilean favorite, such as abalone, sea urchin, or the regional barnacle. And where better to see, smell, and taste these fruits of the sea than the Fish Market of Angelmó, located at the end of Avenida Angelmó, where the artisan market terminates? It's open Monday through Sunday from 10am to 8pm during the summer, until 6pm during the winter. Like most fish markets, it's a little grungy, but it's a colorful stop nevertheless and there are several restaurant stalls offering the freshest local specialties around. Be aware: There have been reports that a few food stalls like to overcharge tourists, so double-check your bill with the menu.

Apart from the restaurants listed here, there are a handful of inexpensive cafes in Puerto Montt, including Café Central, Rancagua 117 (tel. 65/482888), and Super Yoco, Quillota 245 (tel. 65/252123), which has lunches, empanadas, and appetizer platters. You'll find German pastries and beer from microbreweries at Café Haussmann, San Martín 185 (tel. 65/293380) or Club Alemán, Varas 264 (tel. 65/252551).
