The “Completo”, popular and delicious street food and Chilean signature!

The completo, is a hot dog variation eaten in Chile, usually served with ingredients such as chopped tomatoes, avocados, mayonnaise, salsa Americana, ají pepper and green sauce. It can be twice the size of an American hot dog. The dish was first made in the 1920s in the fuentes de soda (soda fountains) of central Santiago of Chile.

The completo was brought to Chile by Eduardo Bahamondes, he then opened a restaurant in Santiago’s historic centre called Quick Lunch Bahamondes where he began to introduce the Chilean people to the hot dog. As people didn’t like the original preparation, he added other ingredients like tomato or avocado, that eventually ends to be accepted by the public.

The completo is also a type of hot dog eaten in Brazil, which generally includes mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, corn, peas, tomatoes, onions, Parmesan cheese and fries. In São Paulo, it is common to add mashed potatoes. Common extra fillings include chicken, cream cheese, ground meat and olives.

In Chile, the Completo is a very popular and delicious street food and Chilean signature, and now you can eat it at Bacán, and of course, with the special homemade bread Chilean recipe, to offer an authentic product to the customers.
