El Picaflor – Peruvian restaurant in Paris | BKWine Pick

Inspired by our South America wine tour trip in February we recently went to a Peruvian restaurant here in Paris, considered one of the very best. And we were not disappointed.

We started with a pisco sour – of course! And it was delicious. They use egg white and cinnamon so it tasted a bit different from the ones we have had in Chile. We then chose a variety of Peruvian dishes, served in small portions, to get an idea of the Peruvian gastronomy.

Everything was very good, although my favourite was the flavourful chicken in cheese sauce (aji de gallina). And the ceviche we had for starter, deliciously fresh fish marinated in lime juice. Potatoes in various forms, including sweet potatoes, are used a lot. Peru is known for its fine potatoes.

We recommend as well the ice cream and the sorbets made from exotic Peruvian fruit. The service is very friendly and the owner and her staff will be happy to help you with your choice.

If you would like to taste some more pisco sour (not Peruvian, but Chilean) and above all outstanding South America wines, then you can come on the wine and food tour to Chile and Argentina organised by BKWine.
