hidden gem in Guelph -- Chilean restaurant

mel1000 | Jul 4, 2010 07:50 AM

we've been twice to this small (4 tables!) restaurant and been impressed both times. not easy to find (close to Rocky's) but worth it !

great value -- the food is excellent and the service most attentive.

we've had:
beef empanadas ($6) -- big, full of flavour and fresh;
humitas with Chilean style salad ($5) -- delicate corn with delightful seasoning (mashed corn seasoned Chilean style wrapped in corn leaf);
Gallo Pinto ($14) -- generous dinner, wonderfully seasoned (red beans/rice, tri-tip beef, plantains, 2 eggs, avacado, yucca, tortilla);
Torta mil hojas ($5) -- a wonderful dessert, pastry with caramel and coconut, not too sweet, just perfect end to a meal.

menu is diverse without being overwhelming.

they have delivery and cater.

NOT your average Mexican-style restaurant -- it's much, much better (and Chilean).

the fresh salsa is a welcome departure from the usual salsa offerings.

Los Abuelos is our new favourite dining spot -- discover for yourself.

open Tues-Thurs 11-8pm; Fri-Sat 11-9pm; closed Sun/Mon

447B Elizabeth Street, Guelph
