Best restaurants in Santiago de Chile
More disheveled, more streetwise; just as rich!
Ambrosia Bistro is the restaurant of Carolina Bazan, the same chef who is part of the list of the 50 best cuisines in Latin America. There, every Saturday you can try a brunch menu with dreamy Benedictine eggs.
Ambrosia Bistro, the little brother of chef Carolina Bazan's restaurant of the same name, and sommelier Rosario Onetto, number 20 on the 50 Best Latin America list, has just opened in a small restaurant in Providencia, just steps away from the Los Leones subway station. The restaurant offers delicious preparations to share, at much more affordable prices.
The place is small and cozy, with a simple and careful design that intelligently takes advantage of the reduced space: a bar of fourteen stools overlooking the kitchen, another next to the windows, a huge mirror that gives amplitude to the place and a space made with salt bricks from the Himalayas where the meats matured for more than 90 days will be exhibited. All this, by the way, accompanied by good music chosen by the chef.
As its name indicates, the concept is that of bistro, that is to say, tasty and simple preparations, but with the creative stamp of Bazan. There are fish of the day, homemade pickles, long cooked natural meats, fresh pasta made on the spot and snacks or pica-pica. The best? Everything can be ordered in half a portion.
