Buff Bites - Peruvian Dreams 😋
Hey Hey! As its May and summer is approaching, this week on Buff Bites we opted for a Healthy Peruvian in the heart 💜 of soho called Casita Andina. We love our Peruvian and it takes a lot to impress us, but Casita Andina ticked all our Peruvian goals boxes.
We are so bored of the same old brands and try and bring something different to the table each week. For us the small hidden gems around London are always our FAVE to visit. The authenticity and atmosphere always seem to have the edge.
MARBLE BAR ☑️
OVER THREE FLOORS ☑️
Crunchy corn (vgf) Cancha corn nuts
CEVICHE & RAW BAR
Tuna Ceviche (gf) Yellow fin tuna, tiger’s milk and cured quail
eggs, cassava nori
Ceviche Casita (gf) Sustainable seabass, amarillo tigers milk, avocado, sweet potato, cancha corn
Burnt Salad (vgf) Burnt orange, lemon thyme yoghurt, huacatay vinaigrette, pistachio nut, watercress
EACH DISH WAS A 10, the yellow fin tuna was fresh and light, accompanied by the effortless flavours of the Ceviche Casita. The burnt salad is a must try, the orange and lemon thyme yogurts works well with the Ceviche.
We wanted to explore as much of the menu as possible so decided to go for a meat and fish dish from the HOT KITCHEN to finish off our Peruvian Dreams 😋
Hake Libertad (gf) Pan fried hake, rocoto pepper sauce, choclo
corn arepa, black tobiko
Maca Lamb Loin (gf) Annatto-marinated lamb sirloin, Andina uchucuta herbs, olluco Andean potato, spicy cancha powder
The pan fried Hake was perfectly cooked and the lamb sirloin was full with herbs and flavours. We were well and truly full and unfortunately there was no room for dessert. There is no faulting Casita Andina, each dish was cooked to perfection and kept its authenticity throughout. The staff were welcoming and friendly, we will definitely be returning very soon.
