In Shoreditch they know their pisco

I've really developed a taste for Peruvian cuisine recently. It started off with a trip to a stall in Camden, and has developed into the full on Peruvian taste experience you get at Andina

So what is it about Peruvian cuisine that has hit me? To tell you the truth, I'm not too sure, I have to say I quite like the ceviches, which if I'm not mistaken are raw seafood pieces with lemon juices and spices (especially chilli), and generally the meat dishes are pretty spot on, whether served in pieces or from a skewer - especially when they have been cooked using Pisco (more about that later). Andina has these dishes and more as part of their menu, of which they have three - one for breakfast, one for brunch, and the third for lunch and dinner.

Ok, now for the Pisco. This is a drink with a long history, in fact the first people to brew this spirit were the monks of Pisco, creating it from grapes to create a kind of fruity brandy. Andina makes great use of this with it's Pisco Bar - creating a range of sours, punches and other cocktails which I'm sure you'll want to work your way through (remember, be careful - moderation...)

You have to admit, all of this is already impressive - but I am about to make it even better - the location is right in the centre of Shoreditch, so perfect if you want to use it as the basis of a night out. Also, half of the menu is vegetarian, and many of the dishes are gluten-free, so everybody, no matter what their dietary requirements, should be satisfied.

So, with all these plus points, and not really anything negative at all to say - isn't it time you got a little Peruvian food into your life?
