When sharing a third round of all the usual favorites is still not enough, you know it’s time for a standing reservation. Some things are best repeated every week. Chef Arturo Sandoval is one of them. Aquila Jesus #3, Centro Daily: 1:00 PM - 10:00 PM Chef: Arturo Sandoval All safety protocols followed. Health First certified by the city of SMA.
The Menu: The salad: a mix of baby lettuce, Figs, sunflower seeds, feta cheese and a cognac reduction. $190 pesos. A pan of grilled Chorizo; perhaps the best Chorizo we’ve ever eaten. $150 pesos. Cecina stuffed with suckling pig; a most creative taco using Cecina as the shell. $290 pesos. Causa de Atun: Cause Limena wrapped in Tuna and Rock Shrimp. A typical entrĂ©e of Peruvian gastronomy, this version was made with yellow potato. Chef Sandoval is an expert in Peruvian-Japanese style cooking. $180 pesos Booth One: Like the Pump Room in Chicago, Aquila has a Booth One to the right of the entrance. Reserve it and you’ll not only feel like a VIP with a view of the whole place but it’s also the booth that’s located in the shade.
