Tanta Restaurant Review

: Gastón Acurio has fashioned one impressive Peruvian spot in Tanta, though it’s no surprise given he runs over 30 in 12 countries, including Astrid y Gastón in Lima, Peru. Here, though, the vibe is casual, with a line-up of ceviches (get a tasting), anticuchos (skewers) and Chinese-inspired Del Chifa dishes. Then there’s the signature pollo a la brasa, brined, crisp-skinned chicken with stewy white beans and arroz con choclo, rice stippled with big kernels of Peruvian corn. Finales include mazamorra crumble, a fruit crumble with almond crust.
