Zapallar, Valparaiso Region, Chile
Oceanside Dining in Coastal LegendLocated adjacent to a tiny wharf in the posh beach enclave of Zapallar, Chiringuito is about the view and simply prepared Chilean seafood with little pretense. Zapallar is a refuge for the moneyed elite of Santiago and a Pacific cove surrounded by steep hillsides, tall pines, and a crescent-shaped golden beach with turquoise water. Chiringuito is the "go to" restaurant in town where long lunches are savored on their sunny terrace over bottles of wine. Locals love the broiled razor clams with Parmesan, sauteed scallops in spicy garlic sauce, creamy crab pie, or fresh abalones with salsa verde. Reservations a must especially in the summer. Always request the terrace and bring a sweater for the sometimes chilly breeze.
