You can learn a lot about a culture through its food. Now I didn’t have a ton of time to learn about Chilean food. Mitch, his dad, and I only had four days in Santiago, Chile. Mitch had an idea that this was going to be our most epic month of traveling. We’d visit 4 countries in one month and see so much.
Well we fell into a frequent traveler mistake – we squeezed too much into a short time. At the end of the month, we were exhausted and barely scratched the surface of the vibrant South American countries.
While hopping from spot to spot, Mitch and I had a little revelation that we could enjoy food at top restaurants for a fraction of the price compared to the States. We did this three different times on our world travels. For me, this was epic! One of those times was at an up and coming Chilean restaurant called Boragó in 2015 and now a top twenty restaurant in the world in 2019.
