Beat The Heat with Peruvian

Another hot evening was enjoyably spent hiding out at La Mar and catching up with Jean. I love the three sauces they give with their sweet potato chips. Peanut, cheese, and red pepper were the flavours from left to right. Since it was a warm, we ordered a ceviche and a tiradito (the Peruvian version of sashimi).

Cebiche Mixto 16
Mahi Mahi, calamari, octopus and habanero pepper in ají amarillo leche de tigre with cilantro, red onion, Peruvian corn and yam. The saucing on this was really something. Tiradito Clásico 15
Corvina, ají manzano, lime and cilantro leche de tigre. We never had sea bass sashimi before and suspected it would be fishier, but this was very silken and not fishy at all.Tequeños de lomo saltado
Peruvian Lomo Saltado spring rolls with peanut ocopa sauce. 12. Lomo saltado goodness in a roll. And fried. really how can anyone go wrong with that?Jalea
Crispy Mahi Mahi, calamari and octopus with plantains, yucca,Peruvian corn and red onion, tomato, cilantro Chalaca salsa. 16. This was like a fritto misto. Someone really knows how to use the fryer.
The surroundings were beautiful and breezy. I felt transported to South America. La Mar - need to come again.
