When you think of Norwalk Seafood Restaurants, don’t forget Fiesta Limena! Although many American restaurants describe themselves as seafood restaurants, an authentic Peruvian restaurant is always a seafood restaurant, because so many traditional Peruvian dishes are made with fish and shellfish. From Ensalada de Pulpo, or octopus salad, to Jalea, a large plate of lightly fried crab, calamari, and other seafood, Fiesta Limena has a large selection of dishes for guests who love fish. Other menu choices include Choros a la Chalaca, or fresh mussels, and Pescado a la Macho, a filet of fish that is topped with a sauced seafood mixture of shrimp, octopus and squid. And of course, Peru is famous for its ceviche, fresh fish that is quickly “cooked” without heat using a citrus-based marinade. We offer several different kinds of ceviche, depending upon your preference.

When you look at Fiesta Limena’s dinner menu, you will notice that a large part of it is dedicated to seafood, or mariscos as we say in Spanish. You may wonder why there is such a vast amount of Peruvian seafood specialties, and the answer is that Peru is home to more species of fish than any other country in the world – over 2,000! This includes both freshwater and saltwater fish. Of course Ceviche, made with shrimp, sea bass, and other saltwater fish originated on the coast. However, many people are unaware that there are also an abundance of trout farms in Peru, along with many other freshwater species. In fact, the Peruvian trout exporting business has grown significantly in the last few years as international demand has increased. The climate and water bodies in Peru make it an ideal place for trout farming, and Peruvians use the fish in many dishes, such as Trucha Rellena, or stuffed trout. So when you’re in the mood for fish and looking for a Norwalk seafood restaurant, try Fiesta Limena.

Fifty years ago, many Americans had never tried Chinese food, which was seen as a new and exotic cuisine at the time. After that food trend spread throughout the country, America became familiar with tacos, burritos and other Mexican specialties. Japanese food, particularly sushi, was the next big culinary trend. Next, America tried Thai food. Now, Peruvian food is set to take the stage as the next big thing. It is an exciting change of pace from the usual choices for dining out, and there are virtually endless dishes to try with this diverse cuisine. At Fiesta Limena, we are proud to share authentic Peruvian food with many guests who are trying it for the first time, and with those who are familiar with all that Peru’s food has to offer.
