Review on Andina
Following the success of Ceviche in Soho, Martin Morales opened his second Peruvian restaurant called Andina, located on the corner of Redchurch Street and Shoreditch High Street. Set over two levels, the restaurant takes inspiration from the Peruvian picanteria which is a traditional eatery and beverage establishment in Arequipa. Open all-day for breakfast, lunch and dinner the décor was a collaboration between Martin Morales, Schneider Designers and Here Design to reflect a traditional Andean house. An open kitchen on the ground floor leads to a games room which is home to thousands of rare Peruvian vinyl records from Morales' own record label. Downstairs is the main dining room containing both a ceviche bar and cocktail bar which buzzes to the lively music.
The menu has been created by Morales and head chef Tomasz Baranski using Peruvian ingredients as well as local and seasonal British produce. It is recommended that you choose three sharing dishes per person and typical offerings from the carte could include sea trout in rocoto pepper, Quinoa burger, kiwi yoghurt, chilli mayo or maybe scallops and prawns in amarillo chilli. When it comes to desserts there's Quinoa chocolate brownie with white chocolate cream or to share pumpkin doughnuts, purple maize syrup and chocolate fudge.
The wine list showcases offerings from South America, mainly fair trade, organic or biodynamic, with plenty of choice by the glass as well unique Pisco cocktails, superfood smoothies and their own blend of coffee.
