We proudly serve Tabernero wines at Fiesta Limena. This wine is distilled from grapes grown in the Chincha Valley of Peru, at a winery that has operated for over 100 years. The climate there is excellent for growing grapes with a wonderfully distinct taste. Both Borgona, a pink dessert wine, and Gran Tinto, a red wine, are available at our Norwalk CT restaurant. Many people are unaware of Peruvian wines, but Tabernero has won international awards in several competitions.

If you enjoy fresh seafood, try our ceviche. One of the most traditional and popular dishes in Peru, ceviche is a delightfully unique and tasty entree. Unlike anything you’ve had before, this fish is cooked without being heated. A citrus marinade gives the fish flavor, and turns it white, “cooking” it. We offer both fresh fish and mixed seafood ceviche on the menu at our Norwalk CT restaurant.

Some people feel there is nothing more satisfying than a piece of fresh bread, straight from the oven. But we know there’s something better – a piece of fresh bread with aji sauce. Guests are always pleasantly surprised by the subtle spicy flavor and creamy texture of Fiesta’s this sauce when they try it for the first time. Pretty soon, they are asking for a refill. Aji refers to hot chile peppers from South America, particularly Peru, that are used in authentic Peruvian cooking. Aji peppers are found in the artwork of the ancient Moche culture, so we know they have been prized for centuries. One taste of the aji sauce at our Norwalk CT restaurant, and you’ll see why!

Over 100 wineries in Peru produce delicious Pisco, the grape brandy used in the Pisco Sour, Peru’s national drink. The varied climates in Peru make it a great place for growing different kinds of grapes, and the result is a variety of outstanding Piscos. Some say the Pisco Sour tastes like key lime pie, because it is made with lime juice and egg whites, as well as sugar syrup. It is a great after dinner drink. We make Pisco Sours daily at our Norwalk CT restaurant.

Chupe de Camarones is a Peruvian shrimp chowder. A bit of cream makes it rich and adds to the texture, and Creole seasonings give it an interesting flavor. Most people have tried shrimp, clam chowder, and maybe a shrimp chowder, but many have never tasted this version from Peru. As the temperatures drop this fall, come to Fiesta Limena for a warm and hearty soup. Chupe de Camarones makes a great appetizer before the rest of your meal at our Norwalk CT restaurant.
