Dining Guide

Sitting outside under the fishing basket lamps, nibbling on crispy plantain chips and aji amarillo (a vivid yellow pepper sauce), sipping on a passion fruit–infused mimosa—one almost feels transported to a stylish Latin American seaside rather than a patio facing a traffic intersection near the University of Texas. Weekend brunch is accommodating for those in the mood for Peruvian-style cebiche—striped sea bass marinated in bright yuzu and topped with crunchy toasted corn—or empanadas made with shreds of creamy chicken in a fried plantain shell. Those who want scrambled eggs and thick slices of perfectly crisp bacon will find that too. Dinner in the casual, mid-century-modern dining room brings bao with hoisin pork belly, a hearty lomo saltado, and a lovely pan-seared filet of Gulf black drum atop a pool of lemongrass-aji sauce, reminding you of the Asian influence in Peru’s cuisine.
