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.

    The List :: Andina

    ina was my February treat. Having thoroughly enjoyed a previous visit to Martin Morales' Ceviche in Soho I was keen to get booked in as soon as I heard about it. We sat down at 6.45pm on a Wednesday and were pleasantly surprised to find the place already quite full despite the ongoing tube strike. We started with a couple of house cocktails, which having tried the pisco sours in Ceviche were a slight disappointment, a little too sugary for my tastes. I stuck to beer thereafter. The food, however, was a different story. Starting with a street eat and a ceviche, we ordered the prawn & quinoa chowder and the seabass ceviche. Both were tinged with chilli, warming and full of flavour. For mains we chose the lamb skewers and the three potato cakes with varieties of fish. Again, superb flavours and pleasing presentation...

  2. 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...

    Munch My Way :: Andina, Shoreditch

    Home 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...
