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.
