Don Andres - A Peruvian Kitchen

Peruvian cuisine is known worldwide as one of the best in South America. I had a chance to try this unique cuisine and see what everyone is raving about at Don Andres - A Peruvian Kitchen.

Aside from Peru's abundant seafood from the coast and a bounty of tropical fruits from the jungle, corn, potatoes from the Andes and chillies have comprised the indigenous Peruvian cuisine. I found Don Andres dish offerings to be carbohydrate-rich.
Saguchon De Chicharon (P 225) is Barra with mayo topped with sliced ham, sweet potatoes, Peruvian onion salsa and batata chips. This sandwich combo makes a good appetizer and can be shared by 2 to 3 persons.
Pulpo Al Olivo is an ideal appetizer made from sliced octopus coked in citrus juice, saltine crackers with Botija olive sauce (P 290).



Chorizo Al Plato is another appetizer of grilled chorizo with garlic served with a salad side dish (P 260).


Ceviche de Pescado is marinated Mahi-mahi, a Hawaiian fish or Dolphin fish cured in citrus juice with yellow chili sauce (P 280). The Peruvian ceviche features raw fish that is citrus-cooked by marinating it in Peruvian lime juice, raw onions, and chili.

This dish comes with corn, toasted corn kernels and a slice of sweet potato which balances the acidity of the ceviche marinade.


Pollo Entero (P 650 served with side dishes; P 590 without side dish) is a tasty whole Peruvian Chicken. It is marinated with enough flavor to satisfy anyone, but mild enough for all to indulge in. The slow-cooked rotisserie style chicken is served with fresh green salad, rice or mashed potatoes as an option.

This is the best rotisserie chicken I've ever tasted!

Brochetas De Lomo (P 420) are tender Beef Tenderloin Skewers with bell pepper and onions. It comes with a serving of French fries and dip.


Lomo Saltado (P 420) is stir-fried beef tenderlion strips, a popular fusion dish that mixes the Chinese stir-fry tradition with chopped parsley leaves, parsley, onions tomatoes, french fries.

Lengua Guisada (P 420) is Ox Tongue marinated and cooked in Peruvian style served with mashed potatoes. The beef tongue slices were outrageously good! It has that melt-in-your-mouth tender meat that was really flavorful.
Arroz con Mariscos (P 380) is one of my favorites. The mixed rice represents bountiful Peruvian harvest of the sea. This house specialty combines rice with tiger prawns, Peruvian mussels, coriander leaves in wine sauce topped with bell pepper and celery.
Arroz con Mejillones is Mixed Rice with Peruvian Mussels simmered in white wine (P 380).











European, African and Asian influences were evident in their Peruvian cuisine. Overall, my food experience was delightful. I recommend that you visit them soon.
