Our Kitchen



At La Gringa Carioca Hostel, each morning you will wake up to the wafting aroma of an American style breakfast being prepared over a wood-fired stove in our central kitchen.  A full breakfast is served in our spacious dining area, at your convenience, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

A typical breakfast might include:

A variety of regionally sourced cheeses  / freshly baked white and whole wheat breads from local bakeries or prepared in-house / local harvest homemade jams and preserves  / breakfast cakes and pastries / crepes, pancakes & omelets / organic free range eggs from the Futaleufú countryside, served in several styles / fresh fruits, locally sourced depending on the season / a variety of fruit juices / a selection of assorted cereals and granolas / locally produced honey / yogurt / butter /  whole milk / coffee / various teas, herbal and traditional / hot chocolate

Daily menus are based on the time of year, availability of the freshest ingredients possible and dietary requirements of our guests.  Everything is prepared at La Gringa Carioca Hostal with a preference for organically grown local produce. In addition to standard menu items we continually supplement our complimentary breakfast with seasonal market-fresh specials.

Special Requests

La Gringa Carioca Hostal will do everything we can to assist you with your dietary needs and requirements given advanced notice. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten free are all possible options.  If you wish to schedule an earlier or later breakfast please let us know a day in advance. We will try to do everything we can to accommodate special requests.

A refrigerator is available for the storage of special foods or medicines.

Lunch Options

Normally, lunch is provided by most of the adventure outfitters providing trips from the town of Futaleufú.  However, if that is not the case, given a day’s notice, La Gringa Carioca Hostal can provide you with a boxed-lunch for your day’s activities for an additional charge.

Garden Grill

While we don’t provide dinner at the Hostal we do have a charcoal grill located in our garden next to the hostal for use by our guests if they so desire.


Après-Adventure Cheese & Beverage Reception 

(Coming in the 2015/2016 Season )

Weather permitting; we plan on hosting a small après-adventure happy hour in our garden with various, cheeses, crackers, nuts and pastas, accompanied by locally produced artisanal beers and a small wine list of various regional varieties.  This will be a small event to help our guests unwind from a day of adventure, yet not interfere with those wanting to get to bed at an early hour.

If you want to use La Gringa Carioca Hostel for a special event, like a wedding or anniversary, we will be happy to help you with menu planning and catering. This would need to be done with advanced notice and at additional cost, depending on the menu and number of guests.  Call or write La Gringa Carioca Hostal for a consultation and price quote.
