So what did we eat at Latin Chef? That was the post on August 6th. So stop right here and read it. I'll wait while you read.
Did you read it?
Food. Good food.
Corn nuts. I'm sure there's a spanish name for them, but I'm kinda lazy to look it up. It's a miracle that I'm even writing this blog, so just be happy with this. I started this post 2 months ago.... Okay, I looked it up. Canchitas. Happy?
Seabass ceviche with big huge slices of sweet potato and hominy. This was really good. It's like all seabass. And it was tender and partially cured, which is nice if the fish is fresh...and it was.
So this was a fried fish dish with a tomato sauce. Once again, I don't know the name of it, and I'm not sure how to look it up. I don't know how to narrow it down to find the name, so let's not worry about details today. So this doesn't look too appetizing in my opinion. I look at it now, and it doesn't make me hungry. I remember looking at it when we got it and thinking, boy that was a mistake. But then I tasted it. I forgot that anemic looking peeled tomatoes can still impart a lovely taste to other foods. It was really good. The fish was freshly fried, so it wasn't completely sogged out, and the sauce was good. The rice was nicely cooked too.
So of course we had to get lomo saltado too! What kind of Peruvian meal would be complete without it. Once again, one of the things that make lomo good is the sauce. The tomato kind of... perfumes the yummy lomo. The lomo itself was flavorful, and not too chewy, although we ate this a long time ago, so my memory may be faulty. But this was a very nice dish.
So there was something annoying that happened. I think the chick serving us was annoying in some way. I believe there was this guy at the counter that she was chatting with when we first walked in. So I think she took a while to take our order, a while to deliver it, and when we asked for hot sauce she didn't give it to us because as soon as she walked back to the counter she started talking to him again. She's lucky this is not fresh in my memory because I'd probably be really nasty about it. I'm basically letting her off the hook.
And the FP hates it when I don't mention him in these. So,
