Tanta - Lima, Peru

Our final meal in Peru was at Tanta, one of the concepts from Astrid Gaston. Gaston is the icon of Peruvian cuisine neuveu and is the most recognizable restaurateur in the country. His flagship restaurant in Lima is closed on Sundays so we went with what we had.

The setup is interesting, half coffee shop/bakery and half causal/fun eating spot. There were plenty of appealing dishes to choose from so we went with as many as our stomachs could fit.

We started with a trio of appetizers: chicken taquitos, chile relleno and fresh vegetable salad. Everything was delicious, especially the taquitos served with guacamole. The salad was a sight for sore eyes having been deprived of fresh greens most of the trip. The portions were large, and with the wine on the table our appetite for a main meal was limited. We kept it simple with their basic pasta (cheese, tomato and garlic), and loved every bite. I could have ordered another one on the spot, but our conscious got the better of us.

Reasonably priced by American standards, we were thrilled to finish our trip on a high note, the perfect transition from mountains and jungles to cities and work. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Gaston invade North America at some point…
