Plates coming out of the kitchen at Pakuri look more like impressionist paintings than dinner entrees: gluten-free pasta awash in bright green pesto, pork ribs sprinkled with chives and pieces of pale pink guava, yogurt mousse topped with bright yellow tangerine granite. Made of repurposed shipping containers and started by a husband-wife chef-sommelier dream team, the Villa Mora eatery serves contemporary Paraguayan cuisine with craft cocktails and wines. Employing indigenous cooking techniques by way of the tatakua oven out back, the goal of the restaurant is to raise awareness of traditional Paraguayan food (with creative twists) to the international gastronomic community.

El Bolsi’s been pushing the Asuncion gastronomic scene to new heights since its opening in 1960, developing a reputation as one of the best places to try traditional Paraguayan plates at affordable prices. Split into a causal diner and slightly fancier dining room, go to the former side for one of the liveliest ambiances, consistently high-quality food, and surprising variety in all of Asuncion. Order dishes like the milanesa or piro caldo for an entree, and the creamy dulce de mamón for a syrupy papaya dessert. Brazilian, Argentina, and American dishes round out the menu, along with sushi, vegan, and vegetarian options.
