Tropical fruit smoothies are the perfect treat for summer. Not only are they delicious, but they can also be a good source of calcium, if you choose a milk-based version, or a fat free drink if you choose an ice-based version. Fiesta Limena now offers both versions in a variety of fruit flavors. Choose from guava, mango, passionfruit or strawberry. We’re always looking or new ways to make your dining experience better at our CT Peruvian restaurant. The next time you stop by for some Lomo Saltado, try a smoothie too!

Peru exported over $500,000 worth of Pisco between January and April of 2010, which is a 101% increase over the numbers from this time last year. Peru’s favorite liquor is becoming more popular around the world, with bars in major cities offering many variations of Pisco cocktails. Of course, the most popular is still the Pisco Sour, which is the national drink of Peru. At Fiesta Limena, we offer Pisco Sours along with several other Pisco Specialty Drinks. The Peru Libre is a classic mixture of Pisco and Coca Cola. The Primavera is a tropical combination of juices and Pisco. The Pisco Limon features Pisco on ice with fresh limes and a hint of sugar. There are so many ways to enjoy Peruvian Pisco – try a new one each time you visit our Norwalk CT restaurant!

Two nights ago, the district of Miraflores, an upscale section of Lima, was buzzing with excitement about Peru’s national dish – Ceviche. A Ceviche Festival took place, encouraging both locals and tourists to try many samples of Peruvian seafood. The organizers’ goal was to promote Ceviche as a great dinner option, since many Peruvians eat it during the day. Of course, at Fiesta Limena, we’ve always known that Ceviche is delicious day or night! It’s the perfect way to end a warm summer’s day – light, healthy, and delicious. Not to mention fresh and tasty! Try it at our Norwalk CT restaurant and you’ll see why Peruvians are so proud of this dish.

Summer may officially start in a few weeks, but it certainly seems like it’s come early this year. After this beautiful Memorial Day weekend, we are all ready for the beach, the pool, and more sunshine. And of course, the perfect summer lunch or dinner, Ceviche! This cold seafood dish is light and fresh, and a great choice on a hot day. Try one of our specialties, Ceviche de Camarones (shrimp), Pescado (fresh fish of the day), or Mixto (a variety of seafood and fish, including octopus and mussels) and you will not be disappointed. Peruvians are very proud of their excellent Ceviche, which is one of the most popular dishes at our Peruvian restaurant in Norwalk.
