While street food and food carts have been around for a while, full-on food trucks have only relatively recently appeared on the streets of Santiago. But they’ve quickly become popular. We list some of the best street spots to try traditional and innovative Chilean street food here.
Climbing to the top of the Cerro San Cristóbal is no easy feat, but once you are there, the views of Santiago, and of course the mote con huesillo, are unbeatable.This is a Chilean summer drink, best served cold, which includes rehydrated dried peaches (huesillos), husked wheat (mote) and a touch of cinnamon. Sit at the foot of the impressive 22-meter statue of the Virgin Mary with a cup of the best mote con huesillo in town while enjoying the breathtaking views of the city.
Eat the Art
The owners of Eat the Art express themselves creatively through their huge pizzas. These pizzas are culinary works of art, made using the best and freshest ingredients and with classic and innovative toppings to choose from. Art is an important factor behind this food truck, and in order to support art and local artists, Eat the Art presents the story and work of a different artist at the end of every week alongside its menu.
El Burro Chingón
El Burro Chingón is a food truck with a varied menu of gourmet fajitas which incorporate flavors from Chilean, Mexican, Chinese and Peruvian cuisines. El Burro Chingón also prepares tasty fajitas suitable for vegetarians, as well as catering for weddings, birthdays and other special events.
