South American Dinner @ La Puerte Del Sol, Evian Les Bain
We had a very good Beignets de Crevettes as a starter. It came piping hot which was crunchy on the outside and soft, and puffy on the inside. Filing of king prawn were top-notch - fresh, succulent and crunchy. It is a good start.
The main course selection offer varieties from all over South America and hubby decided on a chicken dish cooked Peruvian way. It seems that Peruvians uses quite a bit of spices to lent flavour to its dishes and we´re excited by it. Estofado de Pollo, a spicy chicken stew dish serve with rice. Reminds me of curry chicken but milder.
He had Bistec alo Pobre - Estilo Llita. A sliced up steak dish serve with rice, and some chunks of banana, an essential diet in South America among it. Hub was happy.
Looking back, I felt that we could have ordered something more South American, like seafood, something with beans or even more banana. Taste was excellent but somehow, I had a feeling there´s more to south american food than chicken or beef, isn´t it`?
