Las Viejas Cochinas
Las Viejas Cochinas information
One of Talca's most popular restaurants is a huge, clattering, low-roofed canteen out of town alongside the Río Claro. Dour waiters take forever to bring out the house specialty, pollo mariscal (chicken in a brandy and seafood sauce), but it's worth the wait and big enough to share.
To get there, leave town heading west along Av Bernardo O'Higgins, cross the Río Claro bridge, keep right, then stay right at the fork in the road.
