Barranco – Beware of the Pisco Sour

Zurich – I love Peruvian cuisine even though I’ve never been to Peru. Therefore, Peru is still on my bucket list.

Pisco Sour

I wanted to go to the Barranco restaurant a few times, but it was always fully booked. This seemed to me to be an indicator that the food had to be good. It is also one of the (still) few restaurants that offer “planted.chicken”. This is a meat analogue made of pea protein. The ETH startup “planted” has developed it and is now really taking it to the next level.
Since we were a party of four, we simply ordered the whole menu. I was very positively surprised by the taste, presentation and quality of the food. We were particularly impressed by the vegetarian dishes including planted chicken, but also by the pork belly dish. The wine list has some good drops. I also recommend a Pisco sour for aperitifs and/or to finish off: one of my favourite drinks from South America since my first trip to Argentina.
