Santiago

COOL SPOTS AND NEIGHBOURHOODS

 

Paseo Orrego Luco

 

During a day of randomly wandering the streets of Santiago, we stumbled upon Paeso Orrego Luco. This alcove off Providencia has a great selection of restaurants, pubs, and bars, all of which line a pedestrian walkway filled with outdoor seating.  It has a great atmosphere buzzing with laughter and conversation. This is a particularly popular spot for people to visit at the end of their workday, taking a moment to unwind before heading home. It is also known for hosting fashion shows and concerts, so you might want to stroll by and see what's going on.

Av. Holanda & Calle San Piox

 

Just along Av. Holanda there's a collection of small, humble restaurants that looked awfully tempting.  It's a much quieter street than Providencia and can offer a place to dine away from the sometimes overwhelming intensity of Santiago. Had we been able to spend more time in Santiago we definitely would have liked to stop in and check a few out.

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs; nor are we professional food reviewers or travel writers. We are, however, food and travel obsessed. Food is more than fuel, and we experience it (whether at home or abroad) through a lens polished by our travel experiences. Food is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.
 

A quick word about reviews: you will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food and travel experiences that are a bit "off the wall" (or the beaten path).  That sometimes leads us to experiences that are a bit less-than-perfect (and that's putting it mildly). But, if we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our experiences with you in the hopes that you'll find them as fun and wondrous as we do.
