Open Evenings
Tuesday Thru Saturday

My first time with Peruvian fare, but it's similar in many ways to Colombian.  A lot of starch and carbohydrates - mostly roasted potatoes and rice.

Started with a dish that dates back to Incan times, Anticuchos (top left), slices of marinated cow heart, skewered and charcoal Broiled.   Think it was probably my first time with cow heart too.  Texture seemed very much like skirt steak - it's just another muscle.

Next to the Anticuchos nother appetizer, Peruvian tamales, ground white corn, filed with spiced meat, and steamed in a banana leaf.

Entrees - on the left, grilled beef steak.  On the right, Polada, marinated chicken breast.

Dessert, one of the best flans I've ever had.
