Square Meal Review of Andina ?

With Ceviche in Soho wowing the crowds, owner Martin Morales has turned to Shoreditch for his next eatery. Comprising a small street-level dining room and roomier downstairs area, the decor is bright and vibrant, with splashes of Peruvian colour. This vibrancy continues on the menu, with a superb starter of sea bass ceviche served alongside a dinky pot of pour-your-own ‘tiger’s milk’ (for that added chilli and lime hit). ‘Res’ (aka beef carpaccio) is equally impressive – ultra-thin slices enlivened with figs and a minty pisco dressing. However, we found the mains underwhelming in the extreme: causas amantani comprised three dense lumps of cold mashed potato with various fishy toppings, chupe (king prawn and black-quinoa chowder) failed to excite, and a dulce de leche dessert was lifeless. Nevertheless, a lively juice bar, authentic South American breakfasts and a ‘games room’ filled with rare tunes from Morales’ own record label should keep Andina busy.

    chichangout :: Andina

    A little Peruvian gem in Shoreditch. Very cosy, colourful, with menu filled with super foods, inspired by Peruvian Andes. There is also very beautiful story behind this place, which you can read on Andina’s website.

    That Saturday was hot and sunny. We were after something light, original, a bit different to what we usually go for.

    Andina ticked most of the boxes!...

    Sam Stewart Etc :: Andina in Shoreditch

    me people still want to argue with me sometimes about how bad food in London is. To me, that means pure ignorance as the food scene here gets better and better every day. And Peruvian food is one of the cuisines that are blossoming in the city with several great restaurants like Lima (still my favorite and Andina in Shoreditch.

    I have been wanting to go Andina in Shoreditch for a while but I get lazy sometimes going east (I know, very unhip of me)…..but the plan was early dinner with friends followed by drinking on the roof of Shoreditch House...

  1. Andina exemplifies what I love about London. You can stumble on restaurants with international cuisine in all corners of the city.

    Andina first opened back in December 2013, along with a wave of Peruvian restaurants that popped up around London. I can’t imagine Peruvian cuisine to be one which people naturally have a craving for…but who am I to decide on people’s cravings?...

    sexdrugsandbaconrolls :: Andina

    This is Peruvian restaurant which had a lot of hype before opening. Based in Shoreditch, Andina is very chic – probably more suited to West London – it’s always busy so you need to book. We were after a nice light lunch location and this seemed an obvious choice (not only because we had never tried it and have it on our list.) We walked through the more casual ground floor restaurant and were taken to the downstairs dining area that felt a lot more Latin American.

    The stone walls are painted a Mediterranean bright white, set against the light wood of the the bar, starcase and tables. Down stairs there is a modern bar offering a variety of exotic spirits and they do have free cocktail making classes (at an awkward time of 4pm on weekdays but still its free!)...

    Munch My Way :: Andina, Shoreditch

    Andina is run by the team that brought us Ceviche in central Soho.

    What's different here is the relax and comfortable feel that the place has. The restaurant is located right on Shoreditch High St about 5 mins walk from Boxpark and the Overground Station. I was here for brunch and the menu is categorised into breakfast, eggs, street, mains, ceviches and dessert. All very tempting...

  1. Andina, a recently opened Peruvian restaurant in Shoreditch was the Friday night dining destination of choice for myself and my two old school friends, Danni and Jess.

    Martin Morales, founder of Ceviche in Soho, has been fundamental in bringing the current trend of Peruvian food to London. Morales is passionate about Peruvian food and culture and, after the success of Ceviche, comes Andina, serving food inspired by the Peruvian Andes. The Shoreditch restaurant has an all day menu of healthy, nutritious food alongside smoothies and a choice of Pisco cocktails. The menu is also heavy on the vegetarian options and many dishes are gluten-free...
