As we bid farewell to an incredible year, Somos Peru Restaurant extends heartfelt gratitude to all our patrons who made 2023 a truly memorable chapter in our culinary journey. We are honored to have served you the rich and authentic flavors of Peruvian cuisine, and based on all your orders, we present to you the top 5 dishes that defined Somos Peru in 2023.
Originating from the coastal regions of Peru, our Ceviche is a culinary masterpiece that perfectly balances the freshness of the sea with vibrant local ingredients. Diced white fish, marinated in zesty lime juice, accented with Peruvian peppers, and garnished with crisp red onions and cilantro, create a refreshing burst of flavors. Fun fact: Ceviche is often considered Peru’s national dish and reflects the country’s rich maritime traditions.
2. Lomo Saltado:
A fusion of Chinese and Peruvian flavors, Lomo Saltado takes center stage in our menu. This stir-fry masterpiece hails from the bustling streets of Lima. Tender strips of beef are wok-tossed with tomatoes, onions, and Peruvian spices, resulting in a tantalizing blend of savory goodness. Served atop a bed of steamed rice, Lomo Saltado embodies the diverse cultural influences that shape Peruvian cuisine.
3. Causa Limeña:
Dive into the culinary heritage of Lima with our Causa Limeña, a delightful layered potato dish. Mashed yellow potatoes are blended with aji amarillo, lime juice, and a touch of oil to create a smooth and flavorful base. Layered with a variety of fillings such as avocado, shrimp, or chicken, Causa Limeña showcases the artistry and creativity of Peruvian gastronomy.
4. Seco de Cabrito:
Transport yourself to the Northern highlands of Peru with our Seco de Cabrito. This slow-cooked goat stew is a robust and aromatic dish, featuring tender goat meat simmered in a flavorful cilantro-infused broth. Accompanied by rice and beans, Seco de Cabrito is a hearty and soul-warming representation of Peruvian comfort food.
Elevating the experience with a touch of sophistication, Tiradito is a delicate and refined dish rooted in the coastal culinary traditions. Sliced raw fish is bathed in a zesty citrus marinade, often featuring aji amarillo for a subtle heat. Garnished with vibrant rocoto peppers and cilantro, Tiradito is a testament to the artistry and precision that defines Peruvian gastronomy.
