La Tía Rica is one of those restaurants you either have to know about or stumble into – located in one of Berlin’s quieter neighborhoods, Charlottenburg, it is really quite inconspicuous. I first came across it with two fellow Berliners who were looking for a place to escape back to South America, where they had traveled to shortly before. It ticked all their boxes!
The interior is small but cozy, with colorful accessories and decorations and a huge wine rack on one side of the room. Chile being a wine country, the selection is extensive and the team makes great recommendations to go with their menu. On a side note: You can buy the same wine you had for dinner and take it home with you!
The food itself definitely passed the authenticity test, according to my company that night. On the menu you will find classics such as empanadas with all sorts of fillings, some exceptional fish dishes and of course variations of beef.
