Miami is not a hotspot for Chilean food—but it’s out there and absolutely worth seeking out. The places on this guide are all part of Miami’s small family of Chilean restaurants. And after you taste the empanadas, pastel de choclo, and sandwiches coming out of these kitchens, you’ll probably wish we had a few more options to pick from too. But for now, we’re thankful for the ones we’ve got.

This is one of the most well-known Chilean spots in Miami—and for good reason. The food here is great. We love their completo, the Chilean version of a hotdog that’s smothered with housemade mayonnaise, avocado, and served on fluffy bread that outshines the hotdog itself. The pastel de choclo is also really good, and there are more delicious things on the menu, like sandwiches and empanadas. After you’re done eating, check out the little market in the back, where you can grab some wine or desserts like berlines and torta mil hojas.

Pamela’s is a Bird Road classic that’s almost always full for dinner. They’ve got a big menu of sandwiches, seafood, soups, and more. But the one thing you can find on just about every table are empanadas. Pamela’s is deservedly famous for their delicious versions, which are mostly baked, generously filled, and pretty massive (our favorite is the shrimp and cheese). Another thing that should be on the table—besides the wonderful frozen pisco sour—is the pastel de choclo, which has a golden brown surface and chunks of tender chicken dispersed throughout. The dining room is casual and quiet—good for a family dinner or big Sunday night meal.

The majority of the menu at this tiny North Miami Beach restaurant is dedicated to sandwiches, like a lomito and a chacarero, which come on thin slices of housemade bread with enough mayonnaise to ensure your napkin will work overtime. But even if you’re in a sandwich mood, don’t ignore the rest of the menu, which includes some really great empanadas and rotating daily specials. Also, use the bowl of pebre on the table liberally—spread this garlicky condiment on everything you order. Or just eat spoonfuls of it like us.
