My husband and I stopped here for dinner during a vacation to Oceanside. My husband loves to try new flavors, so I scouted this place out as a treat. Tripadvisor has it ranked 9th, and based on our experience, it deserves it's place in the rankings.
We ordered the Quinoa cakes for appetizer. Came with a white/yellow sauce on the plate and a green dipping sauce. Don't know what the green sauce was, but it was good -- just a tiny bit of spice to it. The outside was crunchy and the inside tender.
For dinner we had the Aji gallindo (chicken dish) and the Carapulca. Both were delicious. The creamy sauce on the Aji gallindo was really tasty. It comes on top of potatoes and with a side of rice. I would have liked a bit more chicken because I try to limit carbs. But my husband thought that just the sauce with the rice would have made a very satisfying meal (the sauce was that good).
The beef in the Carapulca was incredibly tender, and the quinoa in the stew made it a hearty stew, with just an unbelievably good flavor. Savory and hearty -- my husband said it was the best stew he's ever had.
For dessert we each had the caramel crème brulee -- a delicious way to end a great meal.
Cost of the meal with 1 alcoholic beverage (wine) was $60 with tip (2 adults).
