I went with friends to check out this restaurant, and we had reviewed their menu online before we went. The food all had exotic names, but the descriptions of several dishes sounded very much like foods that I could go get at an Asian, Mexican or Italian restaurant. I googled Peruvian food and discovered that, in fact, Peruvian food is heavily influenced by the foods from other nations. My friends and I each ordered something different. One ordered the Arroz Chaufa, or fried rice with chicken. It had a very good flavor, but it was basically just a big plate of fried rice with vegetables. Another friend ordered the Pollo Saltado, which had sauteed chicken with onions and tomatoes on a bed of french fries and a side of rice. Seemed a little too starchy for me and a lot like fajita meat and veggies, but the tomatoes had an unusually wonderful flavor. My dish was the Aji de Gallina, which looked like chicken and dumplings with a side of rice. The dish included boiled potatoes, chicken and a very mild cream sauce. I couldn't gather much taste from the cream sauce, but my friends raved about the flavor. It reminded me of chicken and dumplings. Again, lots of starch, but no veggies. My toddler son gobbled up some of all three dishes without complaint. The dessert was very good. We ordered the flan and the alfajores. The flan had a texture that I really liked, not exactly like a custard I've tried before, but not as dense as bread pudding. It was very good, and the flavor was sweet but not too sweet. The alfajores was a shortbread cookie with caramel inside. I really liked the flavor, but the cookie seemed a little dry as it seemed to turn to powder when you ate it. My friend really liked the cookie. You could tell both desserts were made from scratch. The waiter was very helpful and informative and it was a neat, authentic ethnic food experience, which my friends and I are always looking for. I'm not sure if I would return. I would like to try the rotisserie chicken with beans and rice and plantains sometime, because that sounded very tasty.
