Today marks the 8th anniversary of National Completo Day in Chile. It’s a perfect opportunity to celebrate one of Chile’s beloved fast foods, and the best part, at an even lower price than normal.
Its origins can be traced back to 1920 in a stand near the Plaza de Armas where its owner Eduardo Bahamondes imported the idea and adapted it with Chilean ingredients and tastes after a trip to the United States. Throughout the years the varieties went expanding, more gourmet versions, and XL sizes. Today there are so many types of Completos that you can never get bored. One of the most popular completos is the “Italiano” which has avocado (palta), tomato, and mayo. Lots of mayo.
