SquareMeal Review of Andina

Bronze Award

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.

Definitely worth the trek out to E2. The food is offered in a number of large tapas style plates. They recommended 3 per person but that was more than enough for us – no room for pudding! The flavours are crisp and fresh – “zingy” springs to mind. The grilled meats were juicy and tender and full of flavour. Chicken aji de gallina and the sweet and sour corn cake and avocado merit honourable mentions. But everywhere there is a riot of flavour and colour. A lively place – the ground floor a little bit too “caff-like” in look but the basement makes up for that with a decent sized bar and a kind of “stripped down exotic” feel. Oh and the pisco sours went down a treat…

One of the best meals I have had in a while with some very surprising dishes which have tempted my taste buds for more. The quinoa croquettes as was the burger were impressive and left my meal not only full but having been introduced to a whole new world of food. Highly recommend and think the downstairs would be good for a large group booking too.
