Latin Chef Restaurant Review

: Brazilian and Peruvian specialties arrive out of this tiny kitchen and eatery in Pacific Beach. A lengthy menu impresses with authentic dishes like beef stew in cilantro sauce or ceviche mixto, studded with white fish, shrimp and calamari, marinated in lemon juice and Peruvian red pepper. Meat eaters will enjoy the top sirloin with noodles in a Peruvian-style pesto sauce from basil and pecans, and the adventurous can try the marinated beef heart skewers with potatoes and traditional aji verde, a spicy green sauce. Healthy eats include acai bowls loaded with antioxidants or refreshing smoothies. Take home Peruvian foods such as pepper sauces and maca may be purchased from the marketplace as well.
