The restaurant

"We have a permanent commitment to the highest standards of total quality and innovation"

Melting Pot´s first project in Bolivia is GUSTU ("flavor" in Quechua), a haute cuisine restaurant whose simple and innovative gastronomic offer uses exclusively Bolivian products with the aim of spreading the productive potential, cultural richness and biodiversity of the country, seeking revalorization and recognition for the Bolivian native products, local flavors and ancient knowledge to propel the national culture and food heritage engines of socio-economic progress for Bolivian people.

Since its opening in 2013, GUSTU works with a deep respect for each product, recognizing its journey from distant productive plots in a permanent search to understand Bolivia through products from all Bolivia´s ecosystems, from the cold and arid Andean landscapes, passing through the valleys generous and warm vegetation, to the richness of Amazonian wetlands and rivers, without forgetting its hardworking and friendly people and its diverse cultural richness, the basis of the national identity.
