A neighborhood bar turned Asuncion institution, Lido Bar doles out large portions of Paraguayan comfort food alongside cold bottles of Pilsen beer. Come for the suribí soup and cassava empanadas, stay for the enthusiastic crowd watching local soccer games on the TV. Though there’s a second location in Villa Mora, the original can be found on the corner of La Palma and Chile Streets. Other worthwhile menu items include the suribí balls (giant fish balls with mashed potatoes), vori vori (a vegetable broth-based soup with chicken and cheesy cornballs), and milanesas that are bigger than your face.
