We’ve become big fans of Peruvian food in the past year or so. We didn’t know anything about Peruvian cuisine until Morocho popped up on Union Square West last year.
A few months later, Manos Peruanos appeared on 47th St between 6th & 7th Ave. Between the two, we’ve gotten a crash course in Peruvian food.
As we often say, keep an eye out for Daily Specials, which usually make good use of fresh and seasonal ingredients. Sometimes that means fish, one of our favorite foods to eat.
Manos Peruanos had escabeche de pescado as yesterday’s Especial de Hoy, and it cost $10. No worries if you don’t know Spanish. Just about everything on the menu was shown in both Spanish and English.
