SANTIAGO | Peumayen Ancestral Food is one of the more unique restaurants in Santiago. The focus is on Chilean food, but not the food you might expect. At Peumayen, the focus is on the ancestral cuisine of some of the Chile’s native people – the Quechua from the north of the country and the Mapuche and Huilliche tribes from the Andean plains around Santiago and Patagonia.

The space, a brick townhouse in Santiago’s Bellavista neighbourhood, is warm and welcoming, with lots of wood, hanging lanterns, and low ceilings producing a cabin-like atmosphere. Andean pan pipe music adds to the atmosphere and sets the scene for the food on offer.

The tasting menu takes diners on a journey through dishes and flavours that are unfamiliar to most. A starting plate features eight bite-sized pieces of bread, arranged geographically by the source of their ingredients. The grains used in each are native to the respective regions. From there on, the journey continues with an assortment of interesting dishes, broken up with sorbet palate cleansers infused with native plants from the Atacama Desert.

Ingredients used include things like llama, lamb tongue, sweet breads, horse and salmon. Chochoca, a grated roast potato,filled with braised oxtail, is delicious, as is lamb tongue with green pepper pebre, and quinoa salad with beans, peas, berries and Chiloé purple potatoes from. Chapalele, a Chilean dumpling made from boiled potatoes and wheat flour, served with chamomile ice is a wonderful dessert.

If you want a taste of Chile that will introduce you to flavours and cooking techniques you’ve never experienced before, or if you quite simply just want some very tasty food, Peumayen ticks all the right boxes. There’s nothing else quite like it in the city.
