Pisco Perú Restobar
Kalckreuthstraße 10, 10777 Berlin
Schöneberg for me it’s like the other side of the world, that’s why I don’t post a lot about this area of Berlin. However, some days ago I had the chance to discover this wonderful Peruvian restaurant.
I went with two friends as one of them had already been there and suggested we could eat ceviche for dinner.
I really loved the idea of Peruvian dining. Seat, chat for a while, enjoy a bottle of red wine (and a pisco sour!), and have a nice time.
A good server can explain the entire menu without notes, often while hitting emotional cues with the guest. Our waiter was Peruvian and he really did a good job. We asked for recommendations, starters, main dishes, and he was super nice and suggested we should have warm starters and a cold main dish. Without doubts we went for ceviche.
So we selected “Causa Frita” and “Camarones a la Piedra” as starters and then each one of us had a different ceviche as main dish.
Causa Frita is best described as a sort of mini-casserole, with a top and bottom composed of mashed potato mixed with lime juice and ají amarillo (Peruvian yellow pepper) and in this case, a filling consisting of tuna and avocado. I have no words to describe the flavor, you must try it, and yes, it’s a must.
Same with “Camarones a la Piedra”, a warm shrimp ceviche. As I mentioned in other entries, I love seafood, and if ever get to eat it at a restaurant in Berlin, I really enjoy it.
I got “Ceviche Nikkei” as main dish. It was made of tuna, wakame, avocado and ají amarillo. Outstanding. It was absolutely tasty and well presented.
I really need to come back again and try the remaining ones from the menu.
And if the waiter ever sees this… hey, thanks! Service was excellent, thank you again for letting us stay until you almost close the restobar 🙂
I am aware that Spanish “sobremesa” can take longer than expected sometimes.
