Tried this place for dinner. Have tried Peruvian food before so I knew what to expect.
Ceviche – spicy with a hint of chilly flakes, crunchy corn and fresh corn . Not the best ceviche I’ve had , the one down in las canterras in admo is better.
Yuraquitas – soft yuca croquettes filled with crab meat served with a spiced aioli.
Sweetbread fritters – really nice , was my first time having sweetbread fritters . They were served with fried taro slivers and raddish.
Pisco sour punch , passion pisco
Passion mojito was unique in that it was made with some ginger beer.
The chichamorada was very interesting , purple corn. More like a atol de elote without the heaviness from the cream.
Arroz con pato – the pato (duck) was amazing , crisp , cooked perfectly , the skin was a tad bit salty though. The arroz was ok. Could be more moist. Again the one at las canterras was better.
Cordero – the lamb shank was braised nicely (they say for 10 hours, I believe them). It was served on a bed of Lima bean purée and served with a side of rice.
All this for ~30$/PP with plenty of left overs.
