A creative display of sustainability and Chile’s endemic bounty


On the Pass

Rodolfo Guzmán

Set in the breath-taking foothills of Santiago’s tallest mountain, Cerro Manquehue, Boragó takes inspiration from its natural surroundings and the deeply rooted culture of the Chilean Mapuche. The mastermind behind the operation is Rodolfo Guzmán, who works with a team of over 200 foragers and gatherers across the country to create his Endémica tasting menu. The dishes on offer vary depending on the produce in season and include the likes of crudo and candy of fermented arrayán, and lapageria salad (a deep pink flowering plant native to Chile) with rhubarb pulmay – a traditional dish of the Chilean Chiloé archipelago. 

Thanks to its environment-friendly ethos and unique sustainable practices, Boragó was awarded the Flor de Caña Sustainable Restaurant Award as part of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2021 programme.
