Solid service? Enough fresh, homemade desserts to stock a small bakery? Check and check. The former features an effortless blend of friendliness and finesse; the latter showcases a whole lot of dulce de leche-based treats.

Alas, there is no caldillo de congrio on hand to inspire a Nerudaesque ode ("the tender eel glistens, prepared to serve our appetites"). In every other way, however, Pamela's Delicatessen is a paean to Chilean cuisine.
