La Cantina – Modern Peruvian kitchen in Zurich

Zurich – How great, finally a new Peruvian restaurant in Zurich. In cold wet November it’s great to go a little far away, even if it’s only culinary. Peru is still on my bucket list to visit…. let’s see if it finally works out at the end of 2023.
The drinks were already fantastic. Thanks to the very friendly waiter I let myself be convinced by a Chilcano (Pisco, Ginger Ale, lime juice and some Jarabe de Goma (gommy or gum syrup), but I had been looking forward to a Pisco sour all day. I definitively can recommend to try this very refreshing drink. The starters (ceviche) and main dishes with meat was also excellent.

As luck would have it, we caught the first evening that the restaurant was officially open, which was not noticeable in the food or the service – it felt as the team worked hand in hand for a long time. And as promised on the website, some tables were set aside for walk-ins, which we were able to take advantage of. Because going to a restaurant in Zurich without a reservation is definitely a gamble.
