American in Pucón

California-transplant owners fill a clearly appreciated gringo niche at this homesick-remedy of a restaurant. Juicy American-style burgers are a huge hit: try the Grand Prix (caramelized onions, bacon, peanut butter) or the Buddha (sriracha mayo, Asian slaw, popcorn shrimp), but there's also a fat breakfast burrito (available for lunch), fish tacos, buffalo chicken wraps and everything else you might miss.

It is also foreigners' happy-hour hot spot for craft beer – seven taps, including very local brews such as Alásse (Catripulli) and Birrell (Temuco) – and camaraderie.

Their old location at Gerónimo de Alderete 324 is operating slinging Hong Kong Bubble Waffles as L39 Wicked Waffles.
