A pile of rubble from the outside, this dirty derelict-looking house leaves many visitors questioning whether they are at the correct address. Do not be fooled by the grim exterior décor of Restobar KY. As soon as you are buzzed through the gate, a beautiful, exotic hostess greets you at the door to lead you into the extravagant lobby highlighted with regal high ceilings and seductive red velvet.
This sleek, converted house with alluring, meditative music in the background boasts a variety of captivating atmospheres. The "white" room has pristine white leather furniture that allows one to mingle with other "in-the-know" Chileans, while enjoying one of KY’s crisp, eclectic cocktails shaken in front of you. For dinner, guests can make their way to the other side of the house to discover the grand dining room, garnished in ornate modern deco and prodigal crystal chandeliers.
Choose from an intimate rouge booth or a rounded communal table to enjoy KY’s unique and diverse menu of innovative Southeast Asian dishes and contemporary inventions accompanied by an idiosyncratic drink selection.
To start, share some entradas (appetizers) like the posh smooth chicken satay. Alternatively, enjoy your own entree such as the rich goose fois grois with morels and figs or an oozing, caramelized Camembert with truffles.
The Thai-fusion mains include the fiery prawn red panang curry and a Thai green chicken curry, both served with tender rice. KY’S most popular dish is the fresh Easter Island pistachio encrusted tuna, silky and fleshy, drizzled with Thai sauce. The sensational prawn risotto that melts in the mouth is another sublime option.
KY's dominating dessert is the Peruvian speciality, suspiro limeño – this dreamy, creamy, never-ending mixture will satisfy those with the ultimate sweet tooth. Other deserts include crème brulée and various gelatos.
The service is informal and friendly yet prompt and helpful, allowing you to immerse yourself in this incredibly relaxed yet surreal restaurant. It is advised to make reservations for this popular Santaguian hangout, as it is almost always booked up.
