Entrada de Degustaciones (Appetizers):
  • Tiradito de lenguado = marinated lenguado, a type of ceviche, I believe its one with a oil & lime-based sauce
  • Causa de Langostinos = when I any sort of causa in Lima, it was layers of cooked potatoes, meat, and sauce. Here’s a good photo: http://www.cocinarica.com/2008/11/recetas-causa-de-camarones.html.
  • Ecabeche de Pescado = fish filet sautéed with onions, carrots, garlic in an oil & vinegar sauce.

Fondos a elegir (Main dishes):

  • Lomo Saltado al pisco quebranta = diced beef & vegetables sautéed in a pisco-based sauce, usually reflects the influence of Asian cuisine on Peru
  • Seco de Cordero y su polenta de Quinua = lamb stew with polenta made with Quinua, a Peruvian grain
  • Pesca del dia con encebollado al Maracuya = fish of the day in a passionfruit-based soup, never had it so I’m not sure what to expectJ

Postres a elegir (Desserts):
  • Suspiros a la limeña = a lime custard with a meringue topping, its usually very different than flan.
  • Tres Leches y frutos del bosque = ‘3 milk cake’ with tropical fruits. Its usually a wonderfully moist and sweet cake.
  • Picarones (Buñuelos limeños) = a fritter or donut, apparently lime-flavored, a variation I’ve never tried.

I like to update this announcement and say that there are still some available seats.

Anybody who has not been to one of our dinners must come to this one as it will end up being the best one we have had.

Also in regards to the price its a great deal for one of the most expensive Peruvian restaurants in Buenos Aires. Normally the same meal is 150 pesos per head but PozoSanto has given Ba Expats this excellent dinner at nearly half the price.

I look forward to seeing you all there!
