My name is Esteban and I was born and raised in Valparaiso, Chile. When I was only 11, my parents decided to relocate to the great city of New York. Growing up in Chile, I was able to enjoy my grandmother's home made cooking. I enjoyed watching her cook for the whole household, and I hoped that one day I would be able to cook those delicious meals for myself and others.
I have always considered myself an ambassador for my country. I absolutely love food, and was always curious as to why my country's food didn't really appear in the NYC food scene. Despite having little experience in the business, I took on the challenge of bringing Chilean Street food to NYC; Hence Completo NYC was born.
In Chile, the "completo" is a very popular and delicious street food. The completo is basically a bigger version of the hot dog, but with many more toppings.
