Join this walking culinary tour in Santiago to experience Chile's vibrant market district first hand and discover the local culture.
You'll not only get an introduction to the fresh, simple but wholesome typical fare that Chileans eat at home, but you'll get to sample it as well.
The tour starts in the Plaza de Armas and from there you will walk your way north through La Vega Chica, La Vega Central, Tirso de Molina and Mercado Central. This will take you through the lively bustle of the real working market that supplies much of the city with its fresh goods. A blend of colors, smells, faces with just a bit of chaos.
You'll have the opportunity to try home-style dishes like Porotos (beans); enjoy a refreshing Mote con Huesillo, which Chileans themselves can’t decide if it’s a dessert or a drink; another typical Chilean drink with a history; and other typical Chilean treats. You'll also enjoy some seafood in the Mercado Central paired with a crisp glass of Chilean white wine.
More than just a culinary tour, this is an excellent way to discover the local culture.
