Picture the scene. You’re in Santiago. You’re feeling peckish and can’t bear the thought of yet another empanada. What do you do? That’s where Jimbo’s Australian Pie Shop comes in. Tucked away in the city’s bustling Providencia district, it would be easy to miss this little gem.
If you’re looking for a great gastronomical experience, take a bite out of Santiago with this delicious foodie experience here!
Jimbo’s Australian Pie Shop is a breathe of fresh air, in chief, thanks to the even fresher pastries it offers. Dubbed ‘Australian Empanadas’, their fine array of pies are filled with everything from curried meat to three cheeses and nearly everything else you could expect to find inside a piping hot pastry. Their classic dish is pie, chips and salad, while you can also takeaway if you’re on the move.
The cafe, run by an energetic couple, with one half from Australia and the other Chilean, is full of life, while the food they offer really reflects the passion of it owners. They had spent over 25 years ‘Down Under’ when they decided to migrate to Chile and set up a pie shop. The rest is history. Now serving the best pies in the country, if not the whole of South America, Jimbo’s Australian Pie Shop really is Santiago’s hidden gem and a must for anyone looking for a great alternative to Chile’s local cuisine.
