Lima's Taste specializes in authentic Peruvian recipes that were passed down to chef Nelly from her Grandmother while growing up in Lima Peru. Nelly was tugging on grandma's apron as the women in the neighborhood would gather in one another's kitchens trading recipes while preparing feasts and dinners. Some of the dishes can be traced back to the Inca civilization - such as the Escaveche. This chicken or fish dish is seasoned with Panca peppers, vinegar and garlic. Onions and yucca surround this novel dish. The Incas used this dish medicinally for respiratory ailments. We invite you to experience our Peruvian Ceviche. Fresh, ripe fish and seafood, absorbing and cooking in the juices of lemons & limes, spices and seasonings. This makes Peruvian Ceviche one of the healthiest foods one can treat their body to. Experience the taste of the Causa which is a spiced up mashed potato ball stuffed with avocado and, seasoned chicken, or Russian salad, or shrimp. Or be adventurous and try The Anticucho skewered chunks of grilled cow heart an amazingly tender and beautiful piece of meat comparable with fillet mignon. Speaking of fillet Mignon try the Lomo Saltado cubes of fillet mignon, tomatoes, onions, and French fries, stir fried together and seasoned with Peruvian spices. Lima is a seaside city in Peru, so don't overlook the Picante shrimp, scallops, squid and baby octopus seasoned and sauteed in a creamy pepper sauce that will take your taste palette to a new land.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rustic but clean and cozy. The dishes are excellent and wish they were more generous with the sauce in the dishes. Very delicious. First time we had more sauce than the second time of visit. Sep 13, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Really yummy drinks and food! We had the Pisco-based drinks, and they were smooth and strong. I'm a new fan of this unique Peruvian liquor. Embarrassed to say we got the buffalo wings, but they were light, crispy, plentiful and accompanied by hand-cut fries.And did I mention service? We used a discount voucher, which often means subpar service. Not with Nicole! She was a gem, right down to going outside to shout and help my lost boyfriend to find the restaurant. We'll absolutely be back. Lima Tastes great to me! Jun 20, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by Service wasn't good. Waitress was not attentive. Food was fair but we were expecting more of a Peruvian menu. Other than raw fish there wasn't enough of variety. Wouldn't go back there. Jun 8, 2014
