This is another endeavor of Gastón Acurio, currently most renown Peruvian chef, and his wife Astrid Gutsche . The place is not easy to define, it is a mix of an upscale cafe, bistro and deli market. Here you can find the best national and foreign oils, sauces, breads and culinary delights, as well as cookbooks. It is decorated in a modern and casual style with lots of glass and windows.
In T´anta (which means bread in Quechua) you can have a light meal consisting in tapas, salads, empanadas, or sánguches (Peruvian sandwiches) or desserts, which are inspiration of Astrid and are very good. If you are in the mood for something bigger you can go for a main course and have some Peruvian traditional dishes presented in innovative ways.
Price Range: Moderate to expensive
