Andina: Peruvian Cuisine in Portland, Oregon

Piso sour at AndinaAndina is a popular Peruvian restaurant in downtown Portland in the Pearl district. The multi-level restaurant was awesome. It had a neat atmosphere.
While we waited for a table we watched the craziness of the open kitchen cranking out food as fast as they could. We only had to wait 15 minutes for a table on a Saturday night, which for Portland is amazing.
The meal started off with bread and three dipping sauces a jalapeño  sauce, passion fruit sauce, and some sort of peanut sauce. All the sauces were tasty.

Next, we shared a small salad which was plenty for two. The salad is one of their small plates that can come in small, medium, or large. All their Peruvian tapas can be ordered that way. Although there were lots of tapas on the menu the salad was the  only one we tried.

Instead of tapas we ordered from their entrees menu. This one is the lamb entree. It was a huge portion.

I ordered one of the specials flank steak with chimichurri sauce. It was a wonderful meal! I do not know what to call the vegetable rice stack, but it was so good.

These next plate was some sautéed veggies with an empanada.
We finished the meal off with dessert. We had the flan which was good, but thicker then flan I’ve had before. Andina had a bunch of unusual sorbets on their menu we had some sort of raspberry hazelnut sorbet.

    I love trying different cuisines, so this sounds like an interesting restaurant.

    The passion fruit sauce sounds particularly interesting. I tried to grow passion fruit once, but we had to make an unexpected trip out of town in the middle of August, which killed the seedlings.

    This looks delicious! My husband used to travel to Portland every month and always raved about the restaurants — I was so jealous! It seems there is no end to the amazing ones there. Lucky you!

    I have never had Peruvian food. These all looks delicious. I love lamb shank. The passion fruit dipping sauce with the bread sounds interesting. I’ll need to find a Peruvian restaurant around you.
