I-Ching, my choice of Chinese restaurant in Santiago

Before going to I-Ching, I have tried several Chinese restaurants in Santiago, and they are all very disappointing, the dishes are not tasty, too much MSG, bad quality for the ingredients… So I was desperate until a friend from HongKong talked about I-Ching, so I would like to give a last chance before saying “the…

Etienne Marcel, the French patisserie all in finesse

If you have no idea where to have a tea time with good sweet treats, I recommend this French patisserie hiden in a calm street in the Ñuñoa at Santiago. Here you can find French style patisseries like macarons (their special), éclairs, tart… but also some viennoiserie like pain au chocolat, croissant or baguette. The place…

Pad Thai, the place for spicy lovers

Honestly, I didn’t hope to eat a good thaï food in Santiago because I found the people here are not yet getting used to spicy and hot food. So we went there because “why not, let’s try it”! And actually, the food is not as traditional as the one in Thailand, of course, but it’s OK. For…

La Popular Pizza y Pan, making the most of their delicious bread dough

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…

Sukine, a taste of Korea in Santiago

Sukine is a restaurant in Santiago where you can find genuine Korean cuisine. We have been there twice already, it’s a very casual and popular canteen, inexpensive and the service is quite efficient. According to the Korean culinary tradition, whatever the meal, it’s always accompanied by some small common dishes to share, mainly vegetables, of…

El Huerto – a patchwork of good vegetarian food

Let’s be clear from the start: we are not vegetarian; I mean we love meat and often got a sensation of unfinished business when having a veggie diner. And yet we do love this restaurant. El Huerto is located in the very pleasant neighbourhood of Providencia, the staff is friendly (not efficient but friendly), and…

Brunch at Metissage

Metissage is a French style bakery, with a quiet small garden at the back and a big hall where you can have a coffee, take a simple lunch or drink you tea in the afternoon. You can also find some “épiceries fines” like ham and charcuterie, free range chickens eggs, artisan yogurt, honey and jam,…
