I SPY: Feed Your Soul

Jan 19, 2017

No money to travel?  If you can't travel the world on foot, you can travel the world by mouth.  There is no greater time then now during NYC Restaurant Week from Jan 23, 2017 to Feb 10, 2017 to be adventurous with your palette and feed your soul.  Save on the great deal - 3 courses $29/ Lunch and $42 Dinner.

Anyone dreaming about Peru?  It's on my bucket list, but I'm waiting for my kids to get older to hike up Macchu Picchu.  So we've still got a couple more years to wait.  But till then I've found a new way to get our Peruvian fix - Llama Inn.

I was hoping that they would be participating in NYC Restaurant Week, but they're not.  Still necessary to give a shout out to my new friends in Brooklyn though, because they rank high on my list and are worth paying full price!  I love everything about this restaurant from the light flooded ambience, to the plant life, and the food…so YUM.

Charred kale, anchovie salad…like a cesar salad

Crispy pork shoulder, fried egg, sweet potato, salsa…like a tamale

Beef stir fry, fried egg, french fries…like the traditional Lomo Saltado 

Fried chicken, honey, pickled chilis…like chicken and waffles

PS.  We ordered seconds on their version of chicken and waffles.  GUILTY.  But so good for brunch!

For those of you who aren't familiar with Peruvian food it is about time you try.  It is a blend of Spanish, Asian, African and Inca spices, packed with flavor, and a good kick.  Often the dishes are served with rice or french fries which is why my kids probably love it so much!  If you want to take advantage of NYC Restaurant Week reserve a table at Raymi Restaurant that is a Peruvian restaurant participating in the promo.  I've never been, but if it's good tell me.  I can always add a new Peruvian hit to my list!  Nom Nom.
