The traditional start to a meal here is with hot fresh bread and a kind of salty olive salsa, I really like it…
…then maybe the Chilean version of a caesar salad.
It’s pretty inexpensive to get a complete meal with a starter, entree, and dessert for around $8-10 US. This is just one of the desserts we got one day, and, yes, those are flower petals on top of a fresh berry custard pie.
We’ve been eating pretty well just on trips to the markets, too. And lots of fresh fruit for cheap. Ken’s chicken tacos were some of the best I’ve ever had.
