Paladar 1900 Review
The latest eatery from the restauranteur known as El Turko is by far his best yet and easily one of Arequipa's top restaurants. The contemporary digs, which have moved from Calle Villaba to a more pedestrian-friendly location on Calle San Francisco, are the place where Arequipa's sophisticated elite come to wine and dine. The lengthy menu is adventurous and travels to the Mediterranean, Middle East, Southeast Asia, Switzerland, and of course, Peru. Start with the Escribano fusion, a typical Arequipeñan salad that adds octopus, and then move on to one of the heartier entrées like the Bardo Immortal (corn cake stuffed with shrimp tails) or a 350-gram cut of Argentinian Bife Ancho. Finish your evening with a lucuma version of the classic Peruvian sweet, suspiro a la limeña, or a shot of pisco. Note: Paladar's pisco and wine selections are tops in the city.
