Kim visited, and dragged James out too with us for a lovely little meal @ Kión on E. 6th st and Ave A: Japanese peruvian food...the pictures speak for themselves....:) Had sushi too last time but that was "meh" in comparison to everything else...^_^
Sweet plaintains on the side (w/ what I think was condensed milk drippings!)
wok roasted mussels with rocoto peppers, ginger, cilantro and miso broth)
Pulpito (Chilled baby octopus and sautéed octopus tentacles with panca miso garlic ginger sauce)
Toro con palta (tuna belly tartar with avocado mousse, capers and ceviche lime juice)
James got pan seared filet mignon with a fried quail egg topping and blue potato gnocchi side...
Ceviche mixto (shrimp, squid, snapper and fluke marinated in a spicy ceviche sauce)
Anticuchos and Papa a la Huancaina (grilled miso-panca marinated beef, shrimp and chicken skewers served with blue potatoes with feta cheese sauce and kalamata aioli)
Also had the Pepino Rollo (cucumber rolls stuffed with salmon, avocado and seared tuna in a sesame Yuzu sauce) but last time I had the Salmon Yuzu and that was much better--same concept ish with the cucumber hollowed and filled with salmon and yuzu sauce.
here's another shot of the lychee martini but just artsy fartsy sepia :)
