Peruvian Restaurant – Andina, 1 Redchurch Street, Shoreditch, London

We were in London for the Chowzter awards so wanted to check out some food that’s different from what’s available in Glasgow.  Wandering along the multi-cultural and amazing selection of places to eat in Shoreditch, we stumbled across Andina.  Located a short walk from Shoreditch Railway Station, so you can visit easily from any part of the city.

This Peruvian restaurant is bright, relaxed and friendly.  We settled down to check out their menu and decided upon the £9 set lunch deal as well as some extra sides.

£3.50 for this traditional drink, made with barley, linseed, alfalfa and quince. Warm and a bit citrusy, it tasted like something you would drink to sooth your cold and a throat. Lovely.
