A solid chacarero - a Chilean sandwich, anchored by the soft moon of a very slightly crumbly bread (pan amasado, baked next door) . Tender slices of beef (rump according to their menu), mashed avocado and tomato, with a satisfying kick from a smoky earthy hot sauce that integrates itself well into the sandwich. No green beans though.

A very light, soft and creamy cheesecake topped with cherry compote, a perfect dry base of crumbs.

A Chilean pal mentioned that they have pastel de choclo (pies with corn and meat) on fridays. Anyone tried?
