This Friday's supplement, Wiken, in El Mercurio had an article about salads in Santiago. Much as Toid did with the Thai restaurants, I thought I'd pass on some of the places mentoned which are known to me, now that the days are hot. These are main dish salads, not side orders and have a good proportion of greens to other ingredients. All are in Providencia or the part of Las Condes next to Providencia.
Pita, Crepes & Waffles, Boulevard Parque Arauco, Mall Parque Arauco, and other locations, 14 salads which cost between $2950 and $3550. There is a good salmon one.
El Huerto, Orrego Luco 054, seven options, between $3400 and $4100 This is the best vegetarian restaurant in Santiago and all their food is excellent.
Le Flaubert, Orrego Luco 125, $3900 to $4900. This small restaurant is seldom mentioned but is very nice. Same street as El Huerto on the other side of the street. Great winter soups and a nice afternoon tea.
Two of the 'create your own salad' variety:
Soup, Salad and Bowls, Isidora Goyenechea 3185, There are different prices depending on ingredients, aprox. between $ 2500 and $3900. This is a good street for restaurants.
Oh! Salad Garden, Tobalaba 477, Nueva de Lyon 97 and San Sebastian 2948. Depending on ingredients, $2390 to $2690. Ingredients include every sort of vegetable and turkey, cheese, chicken, tuna etc.
Another option is Tavelli, several locations (Andres de Fuenzalida 36l in Providencia and the corner of Tenderini and Agustinas downtown, just to mention two), which does very good salads. Not specifically a salad, but their shrimp brochette (2 brochettes) with a lettuce, avocado and tomato salad is a very good light lunch.
There were lots of other places mentioned in the article but I don't know them. Please add any others you know which are good.
