¡Perro caliente!

My culinary comprehension of Chilean cuisine is tenuous at best, but I do know this -- they rock a hot dog so hard that it could rival anything Chicago has to offer. Meet "El Completo", a snappy dog buried under a mountain of diced tomato, avocado and mayonnaise. The house-baked bun flakes like a biscuit and the zippy salsa cruda has just enough tang to cut through the rich avocado and mayo. I'd love to load this thing up w/ some sport peppers, relish, mustard and sour kraut but I'm not too sure how to translate "drag it through the garden" to Spanish.

-- oh yeah, their empanadas are good too.
