BORAGÓ, RECREATING THE ORIGINAL FLAVORS
The first restaurant that we suggest is the already renowned Boragó. In the words of its own chef and owner, this restaurants deals with ‘territory over technique’.
With a magnificent and well trained team, Rodolfo Guzman, Boragó’s acclaimed chef, seeks out and finds the best ingredients in traditional ancestral cuisine and reinvents them in surprising preparations, appropriately named “Endemic” in his menu.
Naturally, the menu features some seasonal variations, to guarantee the freshness and relevance of each ingredient according to its availability at different times of the year. The result: a unique and always original experience, one that respects the rhythms of nature. You can, of course, pair your dishes with and without alcohol.
The Boragó, which is also considered one of the best in the world, offers not only food, but also a complete experience of discovering Chile through its flavors.
