Andina Restaurant Review

: Peruvian cuisine --- a sophisticated blend of Native American, Spanish, and even Asian cuisines --- is enjoying a deserved burst of popularity. In Portland, this trend was undoubtedly launched by stylish Andina. The menu features “Entradas," Andean small plates ideal for sharing. Don’t miss the vibrantly-red piquillo peppers stuffed with a mix of quinoa, cheese and ham; the grilled octopus salad; or any of the imaginative, fresh ceviche choices. Entrées include such “nuevo Peruvian” items as seared yellowfin tuna with orange zest, lima beans, orange wedges, endive, salsa criolla, and a gooseberry-aji amarillo sauce. The kitchen produces equally delectable desserts such as a creamy goat cheese and lemon cake, and quinoa-studded cannolis filled with passion fruit mousse. There is also an enticing selection of homemade ice creams and sorbets. With its emphasis on quinoa, corn and potatoes, the menu offers many gluten-free options, even a dessert of quinoa chocolate cake. The adjoining Bar Mestizo boasts a popular happy hour and serves Latin American-inspired cocktails such as a sweet-tart pisco sour. A notable selection of wines is available. Live Latin music plays nightly.
