Aji De Gallina
Spicy Creamed Chicken with Mashed Potatoes, Olive Sauce, Pecans & Parmesan Cheese
Aji De Gallina is a delicious Peruvian classic - slightly spicy and bright yellow from the famous aji Amarillo peppers, and rich from the unusual cream sauce made with ground walnuts. This dish is traditionally served over rice, with boiled yellow potatoes. Truly a hearty Peruvian chicken dish and comfort food quality with each bite!
Anticuchos De Pescado
Swordfish Anticucho (Fish Skewers) with Cumin-Sautéed Corn, Grilled Potatoes & Peruvian Onion Salad
The Anticucho is an exquisite dish of Peruvian origin made of any kind of meat that was previously in a tasty marinade marina. Fish lovers will be delighted with Anticuchos De Pescado, where chunky pieces of swordfish served on the skewer, grilled to perfection served together with cumin-sautéed corn, grilled potatoes and Peruvian onion salad.
Risotto A La Huancaina, Classic Lomo Saltado
Risotto, Huancaina Sauce, Marinated Sirloin Strips
For those who are not into chicken or fish, can pick this lovely traditional Peruvian risotto - rice dish cooked to creamy and silky consistency with Huancaina Sauce, served with tender marinated sirloin strips.
Rice Quinoa Pudding with Purple Mazamorra and Glazed Fruits
Complete your Peruvian culinary journey with a sweet dessert of Rice Quinoa Pudding with Purple Mazamorra and Glazed Fruits to warm your heart and soothe your senses. Purple corn, one of the unique products specially flown in from Peru are used for the dessert, which gives it a lovely natural colouring. I enjoyed tasting the sweet melt-in-mouth rice quinoa pudding that is cooked to the creamy and rich texture.
To further enhance the Peruvian experience, guests will also enjoy a glass of exotic Pisco cocktail during dinner. The national drink of Peru, Pisco is a grape distillate, a fine spirit, made exclusively in Peru by fermentation of fresh must. It is still distilled following the traditions of its first makers, dating back to the end of the 16th century.
