Beef Burgundy is one of my favorite comfort foods. And I've found there is no better way to prepare it than in a slow cooker. The slow-cooking process keeps all the flavor in the meat resulting in a tender and succulent meat stew.

Le Bistrot in Santiago, Chile - Review




Santiago, Chile does not have an abundance of French cuisine, but for many years there has been one little gem that can meet the needs of any Francophile. Welcome to Le Bistrot.

Le Bistrot is seldom empty on a weekend as it shows off its indoor and covered outdoor seating areas in a setting that gives the feel of being in a bistrot in Marseille. Loud and full of energy, it's a perfect setting to dig into some French fare. 

The most popular dishes at Le Bistrot are the Magret de canard, Médallon de Palette de Boeuf confite au Porto, Moules marinières, as well as their various cheeses and foie gras.

For my visit, I opted for two of my favorites: escargot and boeuf bourguignon.


Escargot from Le Bistrot in Santiago, Chile


The escargot arrived in an escargot plate, but it was missing the primary reason to use such a plate as the food came without the shells. The sauce was thick with less butter than one usually finds, with large chunks of tasty garlic. While the food itself was good, the presentation without the shells did take away from the experience.



Boeuf Bourguignon from Le Bistrot in Santiago, Chile


I grew up eating boeuf bourguignon at home, so for me, I consider it comfort food. It's really something you can't do wrong as long as the meat itself is tender and the sauce has a savory pop to it. The boeuf bourguignon at Le Bistrot did not disappoint. The served temperature was too hot to eat, so I had to wait for it to cool down. But once I did, the taste blended perfectly with the truffle mashed potatoes it was served with.


The only issue I have with Le Bistrot is that being a French restaurant, it's important to serve French wines. Other than offering champagne, the bistrot offers only (2) French wine options...a single red and a white.

The meal itself delivered the balance I was looking for: simple, comforting food in a fun and enjoyable environment.

If you're looking for a change of pace in a warm and inviting environment, give Le Bistrot a visit.
