Peruvian Taste Restaurant: 2nd Anniversary Specials

Two years ago, as the pandemic raged, Peruvian Taste Restaurant opened in Charlestown. It's located, almost hidden, in a heavily industrial area and it's not a place you would easily stumble upon. However, it's impressive and well worth seeking out. Check out my prior review for more background on the restaurant and a look at some of its delicious cuisine.

One of their specialties is Chifa, a tasty fusion of Peruvian and Chinese cuisines, and Peruvian Taste has more Chifa dishes, easily a dozen, than any other local Peruvian restaurant. Check out my prior article about the history of Peruvian restaurants and Chifa in the U.S. 

For their 2nd Anniversary, only on the weekends of September (and not available for take-out or delivery), they are running a number of food specials including:
  • Conchitas a la Parmesana ($12): Four scallops on the shell baked with parmesan cheese, white wine and butter,
  • Min Pao Special ($15): Chifa steamed bun, inspired by Barrio Chin original recipe containing chicken, pork, steak, quail egg, on a flavorful Chinese sauce.
  • Seco de Cordero a la Norteña ($26): Lamb shank slowly cooked after being marinated overnight with a cilantro sauce and peruvian spices, served with rice, beans and boiled yucca.
  • Causa Acevichada ($18): Traditional cold mashed potatoes with aji amarillo and lime juice filled with avocado and mayonnaise, shredded chicken layered with ceviche and fried jumbo shrimp.
  • Tay Pa ($31): Stir fried chicken, steak, shrimp, pork, mushrooms, snow peas, red peppers, boo choy, Chinese cabbage, string beans and broccoli. 
It's a small restaurant so I advise you to make a Reservation by calling 617-242-5100. If you can't make it for these Anniversary specials, then I highly recommend you dine there another time.
