Where to Eat in Santiago
Santiago is a big City, so you know you will find almost everything that you are looking for. You want a good Thai Restaurant? You’ve got it (www.restaurantbangkok.cl), Do you want a really good Burger? You will find it in Mr. Jack (www.mrjack.cl), But if we are talking about a really great typical chilean meal, you should go to a couple of restaurants from our list.
Typical chilean-cultural-locals expirience
The fisrt one, as always, is for budgets a bit more tights and its called “Los Buenos Muchachos” You will spend pp. from 5.000 to 8.000 pesos and it includes the dancing with the live orchestra.
Its located in different places in Santiago, but the one in Barrio Brasil is the one you should go for. Cause if you are up for trying a good Pisco Sour (one of the typical drings of the country, see section “x”), eat, and have an amazing time dancing with locals this place is for you. Although if you are a gringo in the dancing floor, you have to be carefull with the hot girls with a few to many shots that want to dance with you, cause she might be with someone, so keep your eyes open and hands above her weist, cause this place is more likely to be filled with couples and large groups of friends.
If you want to get a bit more than a gentil touch of a weist we have other places for you in our entertainment tab (where to have real fun).
So to get there it all depends of course where are you in the city. You should take a taxi, if you take it from the Providencia core area it should cost you about 4.000 pesos, if you are up to walk a bit you have to take the metro in your nearest station (see our map), and get of in Estación Cumming, línea 1, then you get in the north sidewalk, you will see a big church, take that Street Ricardo Cummings and go tours north for 1 1/2 blocks. If you rented a car they have secured parking lots for you, they will charge you for that 1.000 pesos.
The other place we love is Adoves de Argomedo its more fancy that the other one, its ambience is like a typical restaurant from the country side, you will find dancing and good grill meat, cordero asado al palo (lamb softly barbeqed in a stick for hours) and also sofisticated dishes. Their live orchestra will make you dance all night at the music of typical Chilean songs and you’ll love it! You have to ask for the song “Si vas para Chile” and/or “De la Caballeria” The first one is about a chilean living abroad, who ask someone if he goes to chile to meet with his loved woman and he describes how beautiful is the place she is in (the southern country sides). The last one relates to the passion of the Chilean Huaso to their country and its traditions.
The spending pp. goes from the 8.000 to 15.000 depending on how many bottles of chilean wine and pisco sours are you up for.
(here we have to add time of opening and closing, web site, capacity, contact for reservation)
Its located on the other side of the main Street Alameda of Cerro Santa Lucia in the Street Lira almoust getting to…
Good food, Good ambience & Good Prices!
A friend of mine came to Chile for work and travel for a few months and she loves to eat, she gave me a couple of heads up for different things that i never thought about as something unique, cause I got used to those things here in chile, but you traveler are going to be thankful for this woman!
Starting with the Ave Paltas Sandwish, real hot dogs (not the ones you are used to in The States), to honey rosted peanut from little carts in the streets, going threw amazing sea food like a fish called congrio, that if you see it alive you will be having nightmares because of the ugly it is, you are going to expirience amazing flavours from Chile and all around the world.
You have to know although that you can drink water from the tab. But, if you are starting your trip here i would buy sometimes bottled so the change is not that big to your body and you start getting use to.
Also, I know about whats the word when you go to south american countrys in matter of food, where to eat it and that sort of things, so we selected good places in that matter. Although I like Street food, you can run into amazing flavors if you risk a bit in to that (ask Anthony Burdain haha!), and we are going to try some good ceviche in the Street, made it by peruans women, but you can leave that to the next traveler if you had bad experiences. When it comes to me, I go for it almost every time!
Dont want to spend to much
So we are starting with some good Ave Paltas! First an Ave Palta is a sandwish made of chicken and abocado, but you have to order it always with some cheese in it. Where to have it? I love 2 places for it, “Dominó” and “La fuente Alemana”.
Dominó (www.domino.cl), is a chain thats started 30 years ago with one little place in down town, but it was so good that it didnt take much to turn in to the hit of the white collar necks. In the 80’s, all the stock brockers whent there to have a piece of their amazing and huge sandwishes. Recently it became a chain owned by the same people, doing a job almoust imposible, to keep the quality and attention the same as in the beggining! All the sandwish are named by a country depending on the color they have for the things you add in them. You have to try here the Ave Palta con Queso and Lomito a lo Pobre con palta, this one is thin pieces of pork with fried onion, friend eggs, plus palta. You will not regret it!

All our selection
Here there are all the restaurants and places we have selected for you dividd by suburb:
Il Siciliano + italiano
Dardignac 0140, Bellavista, Santiago.
Il Siciliano Its a simple place, wooden tables and the brick walls mades it confi relaxed. The ambience is great, crowded on weekends, but if you go then, you have to go to the second floor and ask for Gabriel, one of the best waiters I know, will fight for your order to come out fast. But the great food its what makes the difference, the “Rissoto di mare” and the “Lasagna formagio” are the dishes you have to order, but you will never go wrong with their whole menu!
The rates goes from 6.000 to 8.000 p.p.
