The location of the second Dinner Tuesday I attended was a Peruvian restaurant called "Perú deputamare!". I have never been to a Peruvian restaurant but I was expecting something that would come pretty close to what we were served in the Spanish restaurant where we had our blogger meet-up last month. In fact the menu also featured tapas but they didn't intrigue me as another dish had caught my attention right away: the "Pimentón relleno con quinoa" thus a stewed bell pepper with a quinoa-zucchini-aubergine filling gratinated with mozzarella. Can we please take a minute to talk about the quinoa in this dish? I mean I do live in Europe, not in the US, which means that quinoa is something most people can't even pronounce much less ever ate. So thumbs up for this really exotic and vegetarian dish which was beyond yummy! I would order it again at any time and I was not the only one to have it that evening because two other girls had ordered it as well. The only downer: I thought it was a little bit expensive at 12,80€ especially as it wasn't too filling. Even though I can only judge this yummy dish I had, the other people of our circle where also enthusiastic about the homemade Peruvian lemonade made of purple corn and the chocolate cake with mango ice cream (which is also pictured above). What I appreciated most about this restaurant was the really authentic atmosphere with traditional dishes and super friendly waiters with a Spanish accent. Definitely a place worth recommending and I think this first visit at the "Perú deputamare!" wasn't my last.
