Few weeks ago I invited my massage therapist Scott Hawkins to join me for lunch at Ay Ay Picante. There is only one word that can described my experience at this Peruvian restaurant–OUTSTANDING!

The food and service at Ay Ay Picante is terrific. Every dish was cooked to perfection. It also had a perfect balance of flavors and spices. During lunch, owner Jaime Bardales and hismanager Edith, shared some of the secrets of Peruvian home cooking with us.

The Ceviche served on a plate instead of in a martini glass, was the best I have ever tested anywhere.  I was very impressed. The Anticuchosa marinated beef hearts served on skewers, is a family recipe dish. Passed from generation to generation the Anticuchos is one of the best dishes on the menu. The Parihuela, a fisherman’s stew is the peruvian version to the Bouillibaise. Cooked in a Inca corn beer, this dish made with fish, calamari, mussels and octopus  is by far my favorite. I just couldn’t stop eating it. Ay Ay Picante for this delectable delight.

Overall, there is only one word to describe my experience, DELICIOUS! Honestly, I don’t remember the last time I had such a great meal. I’m sure, the food will always taste good, and a visit to Ay Ay Picante will be well worth it!  
Ay Ay Picante is my new “Jewel.”
