in Santiago

Retro signs adorn the wood-backed bar at this long-running local favorite, usually packed with noisy but appreciative crowds. It's easy to see why: unlike the precious restaurants around it, Galindo is all about sizzling parrilladas (mixed grills) and hearty Chilean staples like chorrillana (french fries topped with grilled onions and meat).

Wash them down with freshly pulled pints or carafes of house wine.
