Astrid y Gaston in Lima, Peru

14 Aug

Our first night in Lima, Peru, we had dinner at Astrid y Gaston. After presenting our GF Spanish travel cards, my brother (who also has Celiac) and I ordered two starters and two main dishes. The first starter we had was the trio of ceviches. My favorite was the one in the middle which had a little heat to it. We also had the “La Procesion de la Papa”, a selection of three native potatoes topped with meat and fish.

This was a hearty appetizer. For our main dishes, we ordered the duck and the tuna. The duck, or El pato en su garbanzal, was served with chickpea sticky rice and traditional radish salsa.

I loved this, but it was very rich. I would have a hard time eating the entire thing myself. The tuna was served with sweet potatoes and was fantastic.

There was a balsamic sauce that it came with that complimented it perfectly. I found our meal here to be very enjoyable!
