I had lunch here last friday. I ordered the Ecabeche de Pescado which was a fried fish filet garnished with aji slice, translucent fried red onions, qurtered H-boil egg, and a peruvian olive (similar to Kalamata) in a vinegar based sauce.
This was served with rice and beans and If that wasnt enough - I was given a small bollilo which I have read is very traditional to peruvian meals.
Rice- AWESOME steamed white rice - much more similar to japanese rice than to anything I have sampled origin L. Am.
Beans- boring pintos (should have taken salad option)
Fish- Really nice dish but one major fault - was that the flesh had stiffened a bit which is an effect vinegar has on the filets over time- so it may have sat for a while (however, the orignal point of escabeches as I have read were the qualities of preservation).
Enjoyed the brightness of the achiote tinged vinager sauce and sweet red onions.
There is quite a menu to explore.
Oh and homemade chicha morada- nice, not too sweet at all.
