Restaurant Choice: Andina- Peruvian Cuisine- Portland, OR
For our anniversary on Saturday, we ate lunch at the Andina Restaurant in Portland, OR. It was so delicious that I had to mention it on this blog. My husband and I have had the chance to try Peruvian food many times but, this restaurant tops our list. Not only was the food exquisite, but the atmosphere and experience as a whole made it so worth it. We actually had to make reservations to eat there (it is that popular). Plus, the prices are very reasonable. I took some pictures of what we ate and copied the description from their menu to explain each one.
So, if you ever get out to Portland, you should look this one up.
