SquareMeal Review of
Readers love everything about this vibrant slice of Peru from the guys behind Soho's Ceviche. Above all, it's a "riot of fun and colour", with ethnic artefacts brightening up the canteen-style dining room and a line-up of "fresh, clean and delicious" food. Whether you're in for breakfast, a light lunch or dinner, you can expect "zingy" flavours galore: the tangy scallop tiradito and sea bass ceviche are a must, whetting your appetite for a host of street-food small plates, juicy grilled meats and hearty peasant classics. We'd single out the slow-cooked ox tongue stew with beer, panca chilli and confit oca, while the grilled octopus with butterbeans and honey sauce is a lesson in how good the cephalopod can really taste. Andina's two bars (one in the "stripped-down exotic" basement) are destinations in their own right, serving "great juices", brilliant Pisco Sours and more besides.
