Capicúa, the best sandwiches in Santiago

We have know this place through the social network of 99 Restaurante (our favorite restaurant in Santiago) because they invited Capicúa’s Chef to one of their special “99+1” event. So we thought, if this Chef is liked by 99, his restaurant is worth testing!

The Chef we are talking about is Luis Garay, a former cook in the famous restaurant Boragó. The guy is experienced and interprets the Chilean cuisine in a modern way through sandwiches.

The restaurant looks basic, nothing fancy and you could pass by without noticing it, but still the place is nice with a large terrace and the staff is cool, friendly and explained their sandwiches with patience. My gentleman ordered a croqueta de pollo, a burger with chicken, tomatoes, caramelized onions, hot green peppers and green beans. The bread was good, and the whole filling was attractive and tasteful.img-20161230-wa0000

And for me a Salmon ahumado laminado, the salmon was on a bed of grilled tomatoes, eggplant, onion and a creamy black garlic sauce. Surprising but very good. img_20161230_132441

The fries were prepared perfectly, with two different dippings : beatroot and spicy tomato. The potatoes had a good smell, the frying was right, we were very happy to find some good fries like these in Santiago !img_20161230_132531

This place is our favorite spot for sandwiches / hamburgers, sure the price is a little bit higher than in others sandwicheries, but it is worth every peso: you have creative recipes, surprisingly tasty and prepared with good quality products, so at the end, the price / performance ratio is good! img_20161231_110101
