Are Any of You From Chile?
Sorry for not giving you a "real" entry when you so deserving of one (although if you want a one-sentence summary of what I ate yesterday, here it is: for lunch, a most excellent harissa falafel pita sandwich from Taim; an assortment of goodies from Bouchon Bakery including a buttery scone, moist carrot muffin, and bloated passion fruit cream-filled donut; and for dinner, red Thai curry sauce and vegetable-laden whole-grain pasta from Chez Tristan accompanied by The Mighty Boosh), but I have a random, potentially relevant question:
Do any of you ("you" being a reader who hopefully likes my blog) live in Chile? Santiago, more specifically. I know it's a long shot, but if so, please leave a comment or email me (email@example.com). Thanks!

I have some family in Chile, for what it's worth.
You shouldn't have put your email like that! It will give you a hell lot of junk mail.
Should put something like "roboppy at gmail dot com"
Natty: Oo...well, I might visit there soon! Or not. It's a big "might." :\
Kay: Yeah I know, but I get so much junk mail that I don't really care anymore. If it were a new email address maybe, but it's years old and all over the interwubs by this point. Gmail catches most of my junk mail at least. WEEEee yay internet not really.
OMG...where is the pictures we so crave for?
I do not live in Santiago, though I know a Chilean here in town...
that said. I have now but Bouchon and passionfruit bloated donut on my list for when I get back from Paris.
You: Next entry! This one's naked.
stinkerbell: The donut was actually a little too bloated for me. :( A little too...heavy. Or not sweet enough (the wheaty part, not the SWEET SWEET GOO). I DEMAND MORE SUGAR!!
I LOVE Bouchon's scones though. And muffins.
There's a town near Rochester called Chili. It's pronounced Chai-Lai. Does that help any? Probably not.
Carl: EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS.
Except maybe that.
BUT THAT IS OKAY!
My brother-in-law is from Chile. All this family lives there. I'll try to get him to email you.
i don't know anyone from or in chile. but i know i want that donut, and i want it now.
Visited Santiago for a week.
Restaurant recommendation: Como Agua Para Chocolate.
All food there is great - fresh fruits and veggies in everything, meats and fish delish. Hard to find bad food!
I was just in Santiago last week. My favorite restaurant was Akarana, but its Pacific Rim cuisine not Chilean. Avoid the street empanadas, I speak from experience....
V and Liz: Thanks for the recs!
I'm not living in Chile right now, but I'm originally from there...anything I can help you with?
(My blog also has a few posts on Chilean food)
I have been checking your page lately and i noticed there are no entries related to Peruvian gastronomy. Well girly, let me tell you that there are some nice Peruvian restaurants in NYC.
La Flor de Mayo
en 484 Amsterdam Ave, New York 10024
This restaurant is Chinese-Peruvian
92 7th Ave S, New York 10014
Try the suspiro limeño (very sweet desert), anticuchos and to frink the famous pisco
and there's a
Taste of Lima on Christopher and a Pio, Pio, on Amsterdam even thought i have not tried it yet. A friend from the Peruvian Gastronomy Lovers group on facebook told me about it
VA: I was about to say, "Wait I have eaten peruvian!" but I haven't talked about it on this site! :( So I failed...
I wrote a review of Pio Pio Salon on Gothamist (I really liked it!), but I never wrote about Chimu in Brooklyn or Flor de Mayo (ate there...some weeks ago, ack). Thanks for your other recommendations! I'm definitely a fan of peruvian food, heh.
