A famous bakery at the end of the earth

Panaderia La Union

How about something with almonds?

How in heaven’s name does a small bakery in a village at the end of the earth become a hot favourite with everyone who passes by?

I’ll tell you how! The Panaderia La Union in Tolhuin, Tierra del Fuego, makes sensationally delicious baked goods and chocolates.

Before we were to cross from Chile to Argentina, Sammy our tour leader, asked if we wanted to have lunch at a terrific little bakery about an hour’s drive north of Ushuaia, which really is at the southern end of the earth.

There was universal agreement that after six days on a farm in remote Chile, we were all hanging out for some indulgence.

Tony tries to choose

Panaderia La Union did not disappoint.

Everything about it is a success—the pictures of the locals who have caught ginormous fish, the chocolates and baked goods, and the free WiFi. We could have stayed all day, but we only had just over an hour to stuff ourselves with everything on offer.

Poor John and I got an assortment of empanadas—I liked the chicken best—as well as some churros and other sweets. We resisted the chocolates simply because we couldn’t make up our minds.

What would you have chosen?

    Ah, let me see. One of everything and two of anything that has chocolate! Either sort of chocolate is fine; dark, milk, white, whatever. Oh and of course, several of anything with custard or icing.
