Aguaymanto Grill Restaurant Review: Perhaps the biggest culinary surprise in the Chantilly area is this unique Peruvian restaurant with the unpronounceable name. Dishes are not only composed with fresh ingredients, but each one reflects its Peruvian roots. Sure you can order the rotisserie chicken, but why skip the seco con frijoles (tender beef in a thick cilantro sauce) or the churrasco a lo pobre (seared knuckle-steak with chimichurri sauce and fried bananas)? Both the hot and the cold appetizers lead one down south to Peru, too, with such offerings as papa a la huancaina, anticuchos, and choros a la chalaca. Even the chicken, which is a common enough entrée in the local Peruvian dining scene, is distinctive, served as it is with a choice of dipping sauces and sides like fried yucca. Beverages include chicha morada, a purplish drink made from purple corn kernels. The tres leches cake is one of the best in the metro region.
