With this new normality, one in which we can feel more comfortable without a mask outdoors, come reunions, celebrations, or even simple lunches or dinners with friends. When we coordinate an outing, choosing what we are going to eat can be the most difficult thing after coordinating a date, that is why the gastronomic patios seem to be the perfect answer. So, Advantage was encouraged to visit Kintu Barras, a space in Miraflores that brings together three brands with different concepts but a single purpose: to offer delicious food to diners.
We start this count with the newest restaurant that we can find in this space, but no less interesting and consistent in its dishes. Maraparte is an incursion into peruvian marine cuisinewhich flirts with Asian touches very well achieved.
To start with the experience we enjoy two types of delicious causes. The first, the save cause, consists of a portion of crispy cause crowned with cevichado fish and pieces of avocado. The combination of textures, juices and flavors made it our favorite. We also taste the brave causewhich accompanies a portion of potato with prawns and avocado and tomato tartare bathed in golf sauce with Thai touches.
If we talk about ceviches, its star version is the Marapartewhich in addition to the classic cubed fish, onion, chili pepper, corn and sweet potato, includes pieces of smoked octopus that give it a much more surprising and -almost- addictive dimension.
In their menu they do not stop celebrating the rice and pasta dishes, of which we tried the how much doughwhich is a plate of long noodles with a mixture of seafood, homemade pomodoro sauce and cheese decorating everything.
Finally, we enjoy a crispy and forceful Panthro with Pejekingwhich is nothing more than a classic pan with pejerrey, but served with lettuce, tomato, avocado, Creole bramble and an acevichada sauce that goes perfectly with it.
If you are one of those who are looking for the perfect balance between delicious, forceful and balanced food, this brand is your perfect option. Unusual bet, mainly, for a letter where the wraps are the protagonists. Here you can enjoy succulent and appetizing combinations where you will find proteins, vegetables, accompaniments and, of course, the inevitable sauces that are almost addictive.
One of the attractions of the brand is that they themselves they prepare and cook the doughs they use for the wraps, and they include in these nutritious foods that give bright colors: there are beetroot and chia, yellow pepper, the classic, the integral, the one with paprika and cayenne pepper and the one with spinach and basil. In addition, they have two innovative machines to roll out the dough and cook it at high temperatures.
we taste the unusual wrap, which has a mix of lettuce and cabbage, caramelized pecans, melted cheese, wonton noodles, barbecue meat, grilled chicken, carnitas, chipotle mayo and BBQ sauce. The combination of flavors and textures made this an unforgettable preparation and for which we plan to return.
But, if you want to try other dishes with the seal Unusualin their menu they also include two types of bowls: one Andean with tricolor quinoa, corn, cocktail potatoes, novoandino crispy chicken and other delicacies; and a bowl órale that serves a base of brown rice, black beans, guacamole, pico de gallo, chifles, barbecue meat and avocado dressing. These two options are just as delicious and filling as the wraps.
You can also enjoy two kinds of salads, pockets and accompaniments like yucca or french fries -these last ones were the sensation-. But, if none of the alternatives that we present here catch your attention at all, there is the possibility of assemble your own wrap or salad taking into account all the options that Unusual offers.
