Rincon Chileno (Chile)
Los Angeles, CA 90029
LA Weekly's Description
Humitas, Chilean tamales, are terrific here, sweetly spiced, intensely corn-flavored, with the consistency of a steamed pudding. Pastel de choclo, a pan-Andean favorite, is a sweet, nutmeg-laced corn pudding that conceals a chicken leg at its core. But the restaurant's great specialty might be the appetizer erizo matico, marinated giant sea urchin, the powerfully nutty iodine smack nearly tamed by the flavors of citrus and finely minced onion. The erizo is delicious, crammed full of aphrodisiac nutrients, but really too rich to eat more than a few bites.

Prices change on the fly but only game in town for real Pastel del Choclo & Chilean Empanadas!
The empanada special is on point. $3.95 for a small empanada of choice, fries and a drink. Don't forget to get their pebre and a side of pan masado with plenty of butter!
Mmmm...spinach and cheese empanada with pevre!
Deliciosas las empanadas!!!
