Former Samba Grille and Alma Cebiche + bar chef David Guerrero is back with this highly appealing Second Ward cafe that serves dishes from countries along the Andes Mountains. Colombian anticuchos, thick, meaty pieces of grilled beef heart, can be found on the menu alongside papa a la huancaina, a Peruvian potato dish covered with creamy aji sauce that was so addictive a Peruvian friend wanted to buy it by the jar. Sandwiches, such as a sausage-filled choripan, are enormous and offer solid value. Naturally, Guerrero's signature ceviches are as delicious as they've always been. Add to the mix South American coffees (from local roasted Katz), sodas and gelato flavors for a complete experience. Located in an office building, the restaurant can be a little tricky to locate, but the rewards are substantial for those who do.
