The Tandoori Nights restaurant at 7137 Little River Turnpike in Annandale has a new name – Lima District Peruvian Kitchen – which reflects its revised menu.
This is the place to go for lomo saltado, the traditional Peruvian mainstay that consists of marinated sirloin steak served with onions tomatoes, spices, fries, and rice ($16.99).
Half of a charcoal roasted chicken (pollo a brasa) with two sides is $9.99, and ceviche de pescado ($13.99).
Other Peruvian specialties include tallarines a la huancaina con lomo saltado (linguini with huancaina sauce and steak); aeropuerto de carne (fried rice with beef, egg noodles, bean sprouts, green onions, egg, and red pepper); and arroz chaufa de pollo (a Peruvian version of chicken fried rice).
Lima District is open Thursday-Sunday 11 a.m.-2 a.m. and Tuesday and Wednesday 11 a.m-11 p.m. It’s closed on Mondays.
