Our guide told us about this place. Thank Heaven, I would have walked right by it. We ordered the pork (lomito) sandwiches with avocado and tomato. Whoa, first of all, the fresh bun was amazing, then came the rest of the sandwich! Awesome. Busy, crowded place. No English spoken! Fun experience.

We walked 10km to get to this restaurant and despite being hungry when we arrived - it was huge servings - must share!!! Totally delicious and worth the trip. Make sure you enjoy with a cold cerveza!

Oh, my goodness! I had no idea it was possible to make a sandwich that big! My wife and I split a wonderfully delicious pork sandwich here accompanied by some Patagonian beers. It was more than enough food. The place was packed with locals and we were lucky to get two stools. How many memorable lunches have you had? Go... More

Yes, this is a fun place - you get to watch the ladies assemble the sandwiches and their uniforms are classic. Yes, it's got lots of history. Yes, the sandwiches are large. However, the food itself is really not all that good. Pork was a little dry, avocado a little bland and mayo a little oily. But for the price,... More

For lunch my wife had decided on a place called “Fuete Alemana” that she had discovered in Trip Advisor. We had mentioned it at our hotel recepcion, and the young guy there smiled so broadly and rubbed his stomach, enough to tell me that this was going to be one of those South American places where you will never go...

This is a real an institution in Santiago de Chile. It is usually quite crowded and chaotic for the uninitiated. You should be speaking Spanish if you come here. Food is great and quite cheap Service is fast & efficient. A place to meet locals.
