About Food in Santiago
It’s no secret that Chilean wine is one of the best of the world. I recommend trying as much as you can, especially if you can buy it at a wine shop, which is much cheaper than in a restaurant. Don’t miss our national variety Carmenere, unique in the world. There are also a lot of wine tours and day trips you can take. One of the best ones is La ruta del vino, at the Colchagua Valley. There are great restaurants and hotels on the way, if you decide to stay a little longer.
In the food department, you should always go for fish, seafood or meat, depending on the location. Our cuisine isn’t very elaborate, but our fresh produce is always good and could be compared with the best in the world. There are amazing restaurants to try, so if you have some cash to spend, ask around for the best ones. There are also cheap local options you can try, and food markets where you can eat or buy fresh vegetables, fruits, meat and fish to cook at your place.
