  • tour of villa la angostura in Patagonia so we hope you guys are hungry today we

  • are having a brunch this doesn't quite qualify as breakfast anymore because

  • it's 11:30 and we wanted to have a little bite at a place called cuckoo

  • chutes which is pretty cool I think it gets the name cuckoo because the walls

  • are covered in old cuckoo clocks and they have a wonderful menu with cakes

  • and pastry

  • this place is enchanting the coffee is great the cakes on display are

  • mouth-watering and the decor is unique if you only have time to visit one cafe

  • in town we'd suggest this one

  • first up savory this is a Patagonian sandwich with salmon I squeezed a little

  • bit of lemon on top it's got lettuce mayo sesame seeds I'm very so fluffy no

  • Simon tastes wonderful especially with a little bit lemon nice little kick well

  • if I tuck into my dessert over here I'm gonna try the tea honey vanilla the cow

  • I'll say it smells wonderful time across the table the aroma of the vanilla is

  • comforting or cool day like today and how about that dessert so this is

  • basically coconut with dulce de leche looks wonderful I love coconut

  • creaminess of the dulce de leche it's sweet it's decadent it's everything

  • you'd want it to be it's delicious guys I've already tucked into this wonderful

  • apple tart the filling it's not just apples like it has walnuts raisins lots

  • of cinnamon crumble air like an ice cream here reminds me so much

  • of a recipe my mom has she doesn't make it very often she used to make it more

  • often when we lived in South America and we were little but it's so you guys had

  • apple trees in your yard so guys that was a wonderful brunch I should mention

  • the whole restaurant looks like a cuckoo clock

  • it's not just cuckoos on the wall there you have it over my shoulder pretty

  • awesome and we ordered a lot of food you know what I loved about the the

  • architecture of that place it's just how how massive the windows were there's so

  • much natural light peeking in and they always had our really nice terrace if

  • you visit in the summer you can eat outdoors under the umbrellas so the

  • price for that meal was 24 US dollars that being said the sandwich was the

  • most expensive part that was probably half the total just the sandwich so if

  • you just want to have like some hot drinks and some cake really affordable

  • spot really cool environment the staff was friendly took care of us right away

  • so yeah great way to start the morning next up we're going to take you to a

  • nice yellow which is officially our favorite restaurant in Villa La Langosta we

  • ate there almost every day because we just wanted to keep trying all the local

  • patagonian dishes listed on their menu right now we're going to show you the

  • trout trucha what's that you say you're gonna try white wine white wine for the first

  • of all I think this is the first time we've had energy to it Sam never drinks

  • white wine but since its trout I'm so love about that you just feel like a

  • what now

  • it's admiring that bottle of wine yes which is not a white wine no it's not I

  • exterior mm-hmm the juiciness of the minute the two trout's have arrived at

  • the table I got one with black butter that's like a butter with a bit of

  • vinegar and I got baddest a word that I cannot seem to remember in English at

  • the moment I know what they are I know the word because I have this on pizza

  • all the time so what does it have as a side I'll try

  • to talk about my side I'll mention that yes the trout it does have a bow but

  • gosh it's just so so tender good it and then on top of that to have a delicious

  • mushroom sauce and all that cheese this is a must try to come the Patagonia you

  • restaurants a trout is on the menu yeah so if you are here try a price point
