Greet your gastronomical guide at the ambient Plaza de Armas to commence your culinary tour. Admire the central monument of Pedro de Valdevia before set off on a stroll around the city.
Follow your guide north towards Mercado Central, admiring street art and gorgeous architecture along the way. Stop off at a selection of authentic restaurants along the way, pleasuring your palate with the following local delicacies; pastel de choclo (a rich and meaty stew topped with sweet mashed corn), porotos granados (soft beans and mashed corn), a refreshing mote con huesillo (a delicious drink made from wheat and peaches) and a terremoto (a sublimely sweet Chilean drink whose name translates to ‘earthquake’, made of ice cream mixed with white wine and fernet). Sip on a distinctive glass of Chilean wine as you sample.
Next, arrive at the Mercado Central (Central Market) to immerse yourself in the bustling atmosphere of Santiago’s culinary hub. Declared one of the world’s most impressive markets by National Geographic Magazine, the unique architecture and prime-quality produce of the market is sure to impress. Browse diverse stalls selling seafood, exotic fruits and fresh vegetables alongside your knowledgeable guide then continue to explore the city independently when your tour concludes at the market.
