Southern American Cooking at Don Andres



Discovered Peruvian cuisine themed restaurant here Don Andres. Tucked along Sgt. Esguerra Street, Don Andres surprised us with a great ambiance and delicious food. Originally from Scout Tobias, they’ve currently relocated  the restaurant. Ran by four friends, they’ve decided to put up a resto with a South American flair. They’ve worked with a Peruvian chef, who grew up in Japan. Yes, that’s right. Japan. Turns out there is a large number of Peruvians also residing in the land of the rising sun. After creating a menu the way the chef has wanted it as so, they’ve managed to present an array of dishes. While names do sound familiar with our association with Spanish culture. Some of the food here are brand new to the taste.

DA-DonAndresDon Andres’ cleverly designed logo. Exactly what do you see? 🙂

Tried out Inca Kola, an import from where else Peru. 😉
This soda has an unusual sweet, fruity flavor. Comparable to bubblegum & cream soda, if you’re familiar with these 2.

Pulpo Al Olivio, sliced octopus tentacles, cooked in citrus juice and botija olive sauce.

Lomo Saltado, beef tenderloin strips with onions, tomatoes and potatoes.

Brochetas de Lomo, Beef tenderloin skewers with bell pepper, onions and with a serving of fries.

May I invite you people for some sangria too? 😀

And guess what? there’s even some room for dessert. Surprised that Don Andres serves sweets.

Keylime Pie. Turns out that limes are a staple in Peru.

Alfajores, shortbread cookies with dulce de leche fillings.
