A nice find for cazuela, empanadas, humitas, chacareros with a nice bottle of red Chilean wine... and much more. There is also a pastry place next door for nice deserts. Will have to visit again next time in LA.

Traditional Chilean food that makes my husband homesick (he's from Santiago de Chile). We live in Arizona, but try to go to Rincon Chileno whenever we are in the LA area. The restaurant is nothing fancy, but the food is outstanding! On our most recent visit we had Carne en jugo, Carne Mechada, Albondigas, Locos (abalone) con papa mayo (potato... More

I hadn't been to Rincon Chileno in at least six or seven years. I try to eat there whenever I attend a play at Sacred Fools, right around the corner on Heliotrope. This was just such a visit.

This place has been here for ever, everything is made in the premises including empanadas (chilean meat pies) and cakes. On friday and Saturday is live music so people can dance to south american tunes.

Friends, relatives, business associates, etc. Anyone can write a review for a business and give the place a boost. I went to the same business but their location is in Lawndale. This is suppose to be chilean pastries that stand up. In other words: delicious. Sorry to say that the hoopla, the high ratings, the praises were not deserving. Yes,... More

Pastel de choclo ( 'ta bueno) and seafood Empanadas (el de'cueve) are the best. Service is dilatory, like Chile!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
