Squaremeal Review of Casita Andina ?

Combining a taste of the Andes with a predominantly gluten-free menu, this well-judged, vivacious restaurant is the latest offering from Peruvian champion Martin Morales (of Ceviche fame). The steep staircase and close quarters might suggest a house party, with bright accessories providing flashes of colour, though the neutral walls and furnishings help ease any claustrophobia. If the idea of gluten-free doesn’t inspire you, rest assured that flavour isn’t sacrificed. The menu is packed with intriguing and delicious-sounding possibilities, from chilli-marinated cauliflower to lamb’s sweetbreads with dark beer sauce, but don’t miss the mildly spiced black pudding on quinoa toast or chilli-pressed watermelon and black quinoa salad – an addictive balance of fruit juice and chocolatey accents. Well-trained staff can navigate you through these honestly priced small plates, although the Peruvian chocolate ball is a must-order finale, filled with elderberry gel and scattered with puffed chocolate rice. To drink, we reckon exemplary Pisco Sours are preferable to the more experimental cocktails.

Since then, both Peru and the London dining scene have both moved on quite a bit. Latin American food in general has become notably trendier with the likes of Coya and Ceviche gaining...

    Musings from the girl next shore :: Casita Andina Soho The Girl Next Shore

    When I heard Martin Morales, the man who kickstarted the Peruvian food revolution in London, opened another Peruvian gem called Casita Andina in Soho, I knew I had to go. Martin is the brains behind Ceviche restaurants as well as the Michelin-recommended Andina in Shoreditch.
    Casita Andina is inpsired by ‘picanterias’ or traditional family-run restaurants usually found in the old homes of Andes locals. The cooking here is a homage to Cusco cuisine in the Andes and aims to celebrate fresh, nutritious Peruvian ingredients paired with sustainable British produce. The menu is a gold mine for gluten-free eating, so...
