- EAT: In their effort to reflect what the soil gives us, they have brought the best products from a somewhat unusual corner of our planet, which the chef consider invaluable. Their tasting menus collect and combine the best endemic product of the Chilean territory, in continual evolution throughout the year. Much of the food is cut from soils not intervened, by collecting communities and small producers throughout Chile, which is why the dishes can vary even during each course.
- WATER: The water served in Boragó comes from the rain of Patagonia, with a high degree of purity.
- MILK: The milk used, especially in their ice cream, is milked by us and comes from natural aging.
- WINES: Boragó do not have a wine list. In return, they seek to add the effort of family projects full of passion. They have a wine pool. These represent particular conditions in the Chilean territory, occasionally with surprising results.
