Chilean Food

Finally managed to try some typical Chilean food. One of the local auditor was very kind to take us out to dinner on Wed. I have requested to be taken to a local Chilean restaurant and she took us to this restaurant at the foot of the Andes.

According to World InfoZone, staple foods in Chile are bread, beans and potatoes. Like a typical Western restaurant, bread is normally serve as before starter. Besides butter, there is also a plate of tomatoes mixed with onions & herbs to go with the bread.

So I had the following for dinner

 EMPANADA DE PINO

For starter, we had ‘Empanada De Pino’. A typical turnover filled with diced meat, onions, olives, raisins and a piece of hard-boiled egg, baked in earthen oven. Very feeling. Almost like a sherperd pie minus the mash potatoes.

PASTEL DE CHOCLO

Then for main, I had ‘Pastel De Choclo’. This is a typical Chilean summer dish. It contains ground corn and meat, chopped onions, small pieces of chicken (mine had a chicken drumstick), pieces of hard-boiled egg, olives and raisins. This dish is also baked in clay.

  1. That looks REALLY nice! Would be great if you can publish the photos in a slightly larger format.

    In order to do that, include the image as the original size, click on the thumbnail to view the options. Next click Include as thumbnail text, it will switch to include as original size. Finally, click on attach to editor.

  2. Babe, I cant even include the original size when I upload. The error message is ‘The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini’. How do I resolve this problem?
