Mercado de Abastos Tirso de Molina
On the second floor of this market are the kitchens that feature Chilean dishes accompanied by international cuisine such as Peruvian, Colombian, Thai or Venezuelan.
This place has been operating since 1896 and reflects the popular culture of central Chile, through its music, where cueca is the protagonist. Here you should try the "Terremoto" that is basically prepared with piped or white wine, pineapple ice cream, a splash of fernet or grenadine. To eat, you cannot miss the pork leg (prenil) with boiled potatoes.
