Expert recommendation

Reinterpreted Latin American cuisine, named after the district of San Cosme, in the north of Lima. Casual, bustling, energetic spot. Great service and food. A fascinating reinterpretation of elotes, a classic Mexican street food, using the big, sweet Peruvian corn, dressed in mayo, chili salt, and grated goats milk feta. Then a lovely couple of grilled octopus tentacles with cubes of avocado and crispy yellow potato cakes – it’s supposed to be dressed with piquillo peppers, but instead has a sweet reduction sauce of some sort. Then on to perfectly grilled slices of sweetbreads with a very sweet corn puree and an almost as sweet wine sauce. And, finishing up with slow braised hanger steak and vegetables, to be wrapped in tortillas served with sour cream and avocado mousse. For the quality, very reasonably priced.
