To prolong my birthday celebrations, I invited one of my daughters for a quick lunch at Pisco Y Nazca at the Kendall location. This was my second visit to this restaurant, and I was not disappointed.
We began with the Ceviche Rocoto that was made with mahi, shrimp, octopus, fried calamari, rocoto (peppers), leche de tigre, cancha (toasted corn), and sweet potato. This is my favorite from their menu because of the crunchy fried calamari.
The Jalea was spectacular – fried calamari, shrimp, mahi, mussels, clams, salsa criolla, which was prepared with red onions, aji amarillo, lime juice, and some freshly chopped cilantro.
We ended with Empanadas de – chicken stew, ají amarillo, chalaquita (a medley of chopped peppers, onions, and cilantro), rocoto pepper aïoli. These were flaky and sexy, the chicken stew succulent and intensely flavorful.
I will be back to Pisco Y Nazca soon: I still have many things to try on their menu.
