Mestizo Cocina Peruana - Our 5 Course Peruvian Degustation

23.Jul.15 As a Thank You dinner, John treated us to five course degustation at Mestizo Cocina Peruana, a Peruvian restaurant in a quiet street in Glenelg South.

Our evening of Peruvian taste was an appetiser of fresh fish, sashimi-inspired. 23.Jul.15

Degustation proper began with probably the most delicious king prawn we've ever tasted. I could have licked the dish of every little bit of smokey prawny-rich sauce left behind. 23.Jul.15

Second in line was beef heart on skewer. I had a vegetarian mashed potato and fresh cheese substitute. 23.Jul.15 23.Jul.15

Third course was a very pretty-looking octopus on herbed mashed potatoes. (Same potato balls I had with cheese, above.) 23.Jul.15

Number four was a serving of seared tuna on a bed of quinoa, together with two plates of 400gm spatchcock. 23.Jul.1523.Jul.15

A sweet ending was the fifth course of dessert -- cake and camu camu sorbet -- plated on a cold slab. 23.Jul.15

That was a memorable experience and I promise you we were full to the brim with all that yumminess by the end of the night!
