The most authentic flavours and aromas of Peruvian cuisine reside in El Inti de Oro, a Madrid-based restaurant which, after 20 years in operation, continues to represent this mix of cultures resulting from the five thousand regional specialities.
Both the staff and the decoration of this restaurant are dressed in Peruvian style, while it's kitchen offers a cuisine based on the most authentic flavours and aromas of the ancestral Creole gastronomy.
Sprinkled with the extra virgin, Abril Gran Selección, the dishes that are minutely designed by the chefs, Segundo Vidarte or Gonzalo Amorós, serve to provide an unusual sensorial experience washed down with pisco, a distilled grape juice, or the beer, Cusqueña.
Among the delicacies to share, the ají amarillo (bread soaked in milk, Parmesan cheese and a slight hint of walnuts) or the escabeche de pescado are ideal starters that prepare the palate to receive the fried "Inti de Oro" ceviche, the Quinoto (a sort of risotto made of a cereal traditionally associated with the Incas) or the Corvina a lo macho (fillet of seabass with rice and shellfish). We will enjoy these "main courses” with the Suspiros limeños (caramel with meringue and cinnamon) or the ice cream made of lúcuma (a regional fruit).
