The generous Chilean sea provides a wide array of tempting products which represent the base of traditional and exquisite combined dishes.
Angelmó Inlet, in the City of Puerto Montt, is a space where everything has the flavor and aroma of fish, including its colorful boats that go out to sea everyday, its market and the most appreciated diners.
We devoted our midday to going around the market and its surroundings. After that, we chose a place to have lunch. Within a noisy space with classic marble counters covered with ice, we observed the various kinds of fish and countless seafood options. Many of them were unknown to us. We made some questions about the place where the sailors' nets find salmon, conger, oysters, mussel, large oysters, picorocos and other varieties, and learned how to cook them in addition to some recipes.
Both the fishing boats and the commuters' launches that lead to Tenglo Island and other isles located farther away are moored behind the venue. This is a classic fishermen nook where the tide causes the barges to run aground in the sand for some hours everyday.

Recommendations: It is very important to bear in mind that some types of seafood are not available at certain seasons. This is due to the fact that their exploitation is forbidden because of the red tide. Besides, uncooked meals (served with lemon) should be avoided in order to prevent serious gastrointestinal disorders. It is advisable not to go around the port area at night. If you do, you had better do it in groups. Do not leave your belongings on your vehicle. Take a taxi instead of walking.
