Are you tired of the same old traditional Chilean drab? Give yourself a unique experience with Mulato and it’s Artisanal Chilean food in Lastarria. Mulato is certainly a foodie experience in the heart of Barrio Lastarria. Their offerings of off beat Chilean fare are thanks to Chef Cristián Correa and his tasteful styling of seafood dishes and pairings of uncommon ingredients.
If you happen to be in Lastarria for a classical atmosphere with artisanal Chilean food, then Mulato is the best bet.
The “Centoilla Mercado” is an awe inspiring way to start out any meal. Fresh king crab from the south of Chile with sliced avocado, purple potato, and a minced onion moté mayonnaisa. This dish is a real crowd pleaser for those who enjoy giant crab legs and fresh pairings.
A “Carpaccio Ceviche” provides a nice seafood starter with its stylish presentation of mussels, surf clam, shrimp, scallops, crab, and reinetta. Quite an exotic array of seafood, all situated in a red pepper Leche de Tigre with black beans and an onion parsley garnish.

As lunch time rolls around in Mulato, one look into the kitchen and its clear that chef Cristián Correa runs a tight ship. One of his market menu specialties is the “Filete Mapuche”, which is a wonderful preparation of skillet steak, garbonzo mash, and white pepper filled with onions and cheese. What really makes this dish is the spicy flavor and signature Mapuche potatos pickled to perfection.
Up next is a “Salmon y Ravioli de Camarónes.” This flavorful dish is comprised of soft Salmon fillet and shrimp ravioli in a creamy shrimpy mushroom sauce. A compliment of seared vegetables and a whole shrimp add the signature Mulato flair, along with a mysterious crispy topping for the salmon. This dish has a strong shrimp flavor in a very delicious way! Not for the faint of taste.
The house “Costilla de Cerdo” is an excellent option for you pork lovers. Sweet glazed short rib cooked to fatty melty perfection. A little bacon wrapped pork loin joins in on the fun with a tad bit of chimichuri. I love homey dishes and pork with mashed potatoes just speaks my language.
Mulato has much going for it other than being Artisanal Chilean food in Lastarria. Signature dishes and a creative concept come together to crown its location thanks to Chef Cristián Correa and his hard work. Treat yourself to this unique experience.
Honorable mentions include an in house premium beer made in partnership with the restaurant and a refreshing dessert of goat cheesecake, Disfrutad!
