Respond to Review of AlmaZen
by Sonja and Dirk
Review: While on our trip to Peru, we were able to eat at AlmaZen for dinner and it was just lovely. We arrived just after 6pm, but dinner did not start until 7pm, so we waited in their "tea shop". We ordered a chai tea, coffee and a baked apple dessert. The menu listed which items were vegan (vegano) and the waitress spoke English. We moved into the dining room for dinner which was a small space with only 4 tables, but it was cozy. The whole restaurant has a very nice, clean and contemporary feel (with a very nice restroom too!). For dinner entrees, we chose to share the quinoa curry and the hamburger patty plate with potatoes and salad. Both were beautifully presented, fresh, colorful and tasty! We also had a pecan tort for dessert. The juices were very good too. We just loved this place and wish we could have gone back as it was the best place we ate at during our trip. The prices are expensive in relation to local prices (my chai cost more than a set lunch menu at another place), but the quality is high and we would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Lima.
