La Pulperia Restaurant Review

: Named for the type of grocery store found in South America, La Pulperia meanders through the cuisines of the continent with creativity and, sometimes, panache. Seafood dishes steal the show. A specialty, the Brazilian pacu fish ribs, might make you ignore traditional beef versions in the future thanks to their savory orange-chipotle barbecue sauce. The same could be said for the salmon tartare glazed with cream cheese, brown sugar, and strawberry-ginger leche de tigre. Non-meat-eaters can order from a special vegetarian menu. Complementing the food are flights of tequila arranged based on guests’ preferences for age and finish; alternatively, choose a well-composed pisco sour from master mixologist Cesar Chavez (Apotheke) or one of the many Argentinian, Californian or French wines.
