Mi Tierra in Tulsa. (Peruvian)

tiomano | Jul 7, 201002:20 PM     6

On the recommendation of a poster at Tulsafood.org I went for lunch today. Mi Tierra is a little restaurant and grocery store located on 81st just east of Sheridan next to the Hungry Howie's Pizza. The sign on the building says Gomez y Compania.

The store is clean, well lit and the staff were very congenial and helpful. I ordered the the Jalea, or the lady talking with me did. It was a traditional Peruvian seafood fry topped with pickled onions and large corn kernels (posole) and served with a nicely spiced dip. The fish was moist, the squid was mostly tender, the mussels were very good, the scallops were perfect, and there was other seafood. It was such a large portion that I didn't have room to try the flan.

So now I have a reason to return, I also want to try the ceviche, the empanadas, the arroz con pollo, and a few other items with names I have no idea what they are.
