Casita Andina: London Restaurant Review

Restaurant Name: Casita Andina

Cuisine: Peruvian, Tapas

Location: Soho

Website: http://www.andinalondon.com/casita

Coeliac UK Certified? No, but almost entire menu GF and most vegan/vegetarian

Accommodating of ALL ALLERGENS? Yes

Dishes Tried: Crunchy Corn, Aubergine Jalea, Aji de Gallina {no quail egg}, Salmon Escabeche, Classic Ceviche, Causa Andina

Impressions: This was hands down my favorite dining experience in London. Again, this was my FAVORITE dining experience. Cocina con cariño– cooked with love– written on the wall and felt in every dish. The ingredients are beautifully sourced with local produce {mainly organic and fair trade} and traceable/high welfare/red tractor farms for meats. The majority of the menu is gluten free, with many vegan and vegetarian options and an extremely knowledgeable staff and kitchen. I had marked my allergens in my reservation online and by the time I had taken my seat, the manager was at my side having reviewed the entire menu with the chef to inform me of the available safe dishes for lunch that day. I could have eaten at Casita Andina for brunch, lunch, and dinner every day of the trip– I even purchased the Ceviche cookbook by their owner and head chef whom I met that day to try my hand at his dishes upon returning back home. Though I was unable to try the other Andina restaurants in the group throughout London, I have no doubt the teams at the others would handle all allergens just as beautifully. A truly unforgettable culinary experience with bold, exquisite flavors.
