Our visit to Sabor Peru was our first and it was a very cold day but this restaurant on a side street was warm and welcoming. We entered and greeted and provided menus immediately with an explanation of the menu and the specials.
One of the popular dishes was said to be the ceviche which we decided to order. The plate that arrived had a healthy portion of well 'cooked' seafood, as it included shrimp, calamari, squid and flat white fish. The cooking juice was a mild citrus liquid, with just a tiny hint of heat. All the fish was fresh and tender. We missed the heat and the touch of cilantro that many other places add but it earned its name as a house specialty.
My wife was intrigued by one of the daily specials which was a Grilled Red Snapper marinated in a soy ginger sauce with seafood on top. Whereas grilled was indicated, it may have actually been fried as there was a light crust on the fish. In any case, the fish was fantastic. The skin was crispy, and the flesh came off the bone easily and was fresh and moist with a hint of soy and ginger. The concha, shrimp and squid on top of the fish were tasty as well and almost a gilding of the lily, a true feast.
I ordered a simpler dish being the saltado of beef, onions and peppers with white rice. The beef was cooked into submission and the entire dish was bland as a stir fry sometimes can be. I did of course sample the snapper.
We decided to try their caramel flan for dessert. The caramel sauce was smooth and rich taste of browned sugar without being overly sweet tasting. It complemented the dense eggy flan. The flan was stiff but the sauce elevated the dish.
The interior of the place is bright and friendly and looks to be a place that has hosted many family meals.
