Guria - Spanish Restaurant in Santiago

This one was good!

We visited yesterday evening - Paulina, me, and Paulina's mum (this was
something of a family politics peace gesture, but no more of that here).
Paulia and I had been once before, but I can't remember any details (Pauli
liked it, which was why we returned).

The food was fancy enough to be different, but still simple enough to be tasty
and filling - it really hits the sweet spot (for me, at least) between variety
and quantity.

I had some kind of pork (solomillo), grilled, with a sweet potato and apple
puree.  Pork and sweet (with a touch of sour) is a pretty traditional mix -
because it works, I guess.  It was delicious.  Paulina and her mum both had
seafood of some kind - both with strong approval.  One plate was sauteed fish
and squid, the other a kind of fish caserole.

The service was friendly and competent; wine was expensive but good (fruity
syrah for me).  Main course each, glases of wine, sangria, and coke, one
pudding (for the ladies, shared) and an expresso (for me) came to $10.000 a
head.  Surprisingly few people were present, but we were eating very early
(8-9pm).

It's located at Manuel Montt 1599, just opposite El Peyo (30m walk South from
Providencia).  There are quite a few restaurants in this area - the Thai
across the road was pretty good, I recall.  One day we should try the Indian.

Everything on the menu sounded interesting; everything we tried was great.
