I recently went a few times to this relatively new Peruvian restaurant in White Plains at 6 Quarropas St, near Mamaroneck Ave. (They also have a branch in Port Chester which I haven’t been to.)
I have really enjoyed the food. They have lunch specials Mon-Fri from 11:30am-4:00pm for $8.75+tax, that includes a soft drink or chicha morada, a choice an app or soup, and several main dishes. The specials change every day and they list them daily on Facebook.
I have had their ceviche pescado (fish ceviche) which was excellent, made with top quality fish. Just the right levels of acid, spice, etc. (I ordered very spicy and thought it was medium spicy, but really good. I didn’t need it any hotter.)
Their soups have been excellent. I have had their Chupe de Mariscos- seafood soup with milk and eggs which had an egg poached in the tasty seafood broth, with carrots, potato, rice, calamari, shrimp, mussels in the shell, and whole tiny octopus. I also had their Chupe de Pescado which was similar but instead of the seafood there were thin slices of crisp, battered fried fish laid on top. When they soaked up the tasty broth they became delicious flavor bombs.
Pallares con Lomito which was a very smoky, tasty, stir fry of beef steak, onions, and tomatoes, with rice and beans. the rice is nicely prepared white rice, but the beans were those super soft, huge, white beans, in a creamy white sauce. One of the creamiest, delicate bean preparations I have had. I really liked this.
Tallarin Verde con Bistec Frito- a thin fried steak, with a great smoky taste, plus spaghetti in a creamy, mild, pesto sauce.
They really have their frying skills down pat. Lots of wok hei going on.
There battered frying is great too. I had their fried calamari which was light and crisp, tender inside. Dipped in Aji Verde, the Peruvian hot sauce made with green peppers, mayo, ricotta, oil, cilantro, etc. A very creamy rendition with a mild to medium jalapeno spiciness.
I look forward to trying their Jalea which is a mixed seafood and fish fry, and working my way through the menu, although I may just end up doing lunch there 1-2 times a week.
