A Terremoto is one of the most famous alcoholic drinks in Chile. A Terremoto, otherwise known as an earthquake in Spanish, contains: Pipeño (fermented wine), pineapple ice cream, and grenadine. While there are many different varieties of this potent beverage, one Chilean bar is known for the perfect Terremoto and that bar is called La Piojera.
La Piojera is conveniently located near the Central Market in Santiago. While the neighborhood can be a tiny bit sketchy in the evenings, once you are inside the bar, it is reasonably safe. However, keeping an eye on your wallet is never an adverse idea. Within the bar, you can order a variety of Chilean traditional foods, drinks, and ultimately, enjoy an authentic Chilean bar experience!
What makes La Piojera very unique is the true local atmosphere that you will encounter. Typically, you can listen to a live traditional guitar performance as you enjoy your meal or sip on your beverages. It is a well-accepted fact that if one is going to Santiago, they must pay La Piojera a visit. If you are looking for a true Chilean atmosphere along with an entertaining story to tell your friends back home, La Piojera provides extremely affordable drinks, and most importantly, a dose of the "real" Chile.
