Chiloé Restaurant Reviews
As befits an island culture, seafood reigns in Chiloé. The signature Chilote dish is the curanto, a hearty stew of shellfish, chicken, sausages, and smoked pork ribs. It's served with plenty of potato-and-flour patties, known as milcao and chapaleles. Salmón ahumado (smoked salmon) is another favorite, though salmon are not native to this area. Avoid any uncooked shellfish unless you're certain you can trust the chef.
The archipelago is also known for its tasty fruit liqueurs, usually from the central Chiloé town of Chonchi. Islanders take berries and apples and turn them into the licor de oro that often awaits you at your hotel.
