Starting today until December 19th, you will be able to taste three course prix-fixe menus based on Peruvian cuisine’s most important ingredient: aji amarillo, a.k.a yellow pepper.
Eight restaurants across New York City are participating and each of them have been inspired to create a menu where yellow pepper is the star.
You will be able to enjoy lomo saltado, ceviche, aji de gallina among other dishes, and even Pisco cocktails with a spicy kick, all for an approximate price of 35 dollars.
