Our Favorite Peruvian Food at Tanta Restaurant in Lima, Peru Travel Video Transcript:
Another day in Lima and that means another restaurant to visit. Today we are going to be eating at Tanta. This is a really famous restaurant by Gastón Acurio. It is actually a chain. It has become so popular. That they have different locations all over the city. We’ve been there once before. And we were so amazed by the food. The presentation. Especially the buffet table. Where you can grab like little bites to sample. A little bit of everything of Peruvian cuisine. That we were like we need to come back. We need to bring the camera. It just so happens to be one restaurant a few blocks down from our apartment. We’re heading over there for lunch.
The food has arrived. Everything you can see on the table right now with the exception of the beer is all mine. One thing I love about this restaurant is that they have this huge bar with like a buffet style. Actually it is not buffet because you kind of like pick and choose what you want to have. They have like individual bites in tapas size. You can have your own customized plates basically.
If you want to sample a lot of Peruvian food without ordering a massive portion this is perfect.
I ordered two causa’s. Which are made with potato. And this one has chicken and peach. And this one has octopus. I’ve had both of these before and I love them. I also got an empanada with ground beef and this has icing sugar on top. It is really popular for Peruvian empanadas to have icing sugar and then you squeeze a little bit of lemon. You have the sweetness and sourness.
In terms of price point that came to just over a 139 Soles which was $42 US dollars total. 21 per person and to be honest that was absolutely insane value. I mean all of the food was just incredible. I’m even going to just say it this is my favorite Peruvian restaurant right now in Lima, Peru.
