Today I went with my parents to Pomaire (spanish article) a town located at the west of Santiago, last time i visited Pomaire I was like 13 years old and i have a really good memories of it, like playing around with my sister Loreto and try out the famous empanada of 1.5kg (you can only eat one), at that time the town was like just one main street and a couple of stores and restaurants, but now it’s completely different there’s a bunch of places where you can eat and a lot of stores where you can find the most awesome pieces of clay handcraft. Today the town was really crowded because during these days we are celebrating our national holidays so everyone is looking where to eat some exquisite Chilean food. We had a great lunch there, I ate a delicious pastel de choclo (corn pie) and drank a little of chicha and wine.
If you’re looking for a place close to Santiago where to spent a great time and eat some typical Chilean food you definitely should go to Pomaire. I hope to go soon again and not every 10 years.
Felices Fiestas Patrias!
