We started off our brunch by boozing it up with some drinks. X had asked if they had any non-alcoholic drinks and our waiter said that they could serve the Chicha Morada without alcohol. I opted for their Llama del Rey with pisco, rum, wed wine, chicha morada, lime, grilled pineapple, and pink peppercorn. I loved the flavor profile – it tasted like red sangria but with pisco and a hint of the chicha morada.
For our appetizers, we opted to split two dishes – the Bok Choy Salad and the Black Bass Ceviche.
The Bok Choy Salad featured raw boy choy, grapes, and sunflower seeds, toasted in a Huacatay Caesar dressing. This was a super interesting salad and I was surprised how much I liked it. I’ve never eaten bok choy before, but I loved this play on the classic Caesar salad. The bok choy was crispy and crunchy.
The Black Bass Ceviche was served with crispy squid, capers, sweet potato, and avocado. I had high expectations for this dish and it didn’t disappoint. It was refreshing and very flavorful.
For my main, I chose the Tamal with Fried Egg, Aji Amarillo, Olive, and Salsa Criolla. I’m normally a huge tamal fan so this really hit the spot for me. The tamal was moist and flavorful.
X had their signature Beef Tenderloin Stir-Fry with Fried Egg, Banana, French Fries, and Rocoto Crema. This is a hefty portion size, so definitely come hungry if you’re going to order this dish! The beef tenderloin was cooked perfectly and I loved the Rocoto Crema.
For dessert we split the Banana and Queso Helado Ice Cream Cake, which was just the right amount of sweet. I love ice cream cake and this one was perfect.
Service was seriously one of the highlights of our meal. Our waiter was friendly and personable and we absolutely loved him. If you’re looking for a cool new spot for brunch or dinner, consider giving Llama Inn a try!
