Barranco is one of the few places where you can find genuine Peruvian cuisine in Zurich. We began in true South American style with a pisco sour to whet our whistle followed by a ceviche clasico (chunks of raw stone bass with big sweet corn kernels and lots of leche de tigre, a spicy, citrus-based marinade). We then chose four plates to share. The camote umami (sweet potatoes with feta, dried olives, honey and chilli) provided a well-balanced flavour and the grilled slices of beef heart (anticuchos) were delicate and tasty, while the crispy cubes of eggplant with peka nuts and yogurt were a welcome paring, but perhaps a touch too salty for our tastes. However, the beef strips in the lomo saltado Peruvian stir fry were as tender as could be and the service at this laid-back locale was attentive and a perfect complement to the evening.
