Nazca Grill - San Diego

honkman | Oct 21, 2009 11:25 PM

Just a brief summary of a first impression after a few lunch visits at a relative new Peruvian restaurant in Clairemont (4310 Genesee Ave) - Nazca Grill. It is in the old place of Aji Seco (and the formerly attached Mexican taco shop). So far my wife and I tried the Pollo a la Brasa which was not bad - very moist and tasty chicken but the fries were average standard fries and the Aji Amarilla was a bland. The pescado a la chorrillana (lightly fried fish with sauteed onions and tomatoes) was very good with excellent fish. The Lomo Saltado is one of the better versions. We normally prefered the version at Tropical Star over the one at Latin Chef but the one at Nazca is our new favorite in SD. We haven't tried any appetizers yet, e.g. Cebiche de Pescado (Latin Chef makes my favorite version) or Anticuchos.
Overall a niced addition to the area and with Tropical Star and the Balboa International Market now the third good place for a nice lunch within walking distance.
