Bored of the usual local food fare? Why not try something different. Say, something Peruvian, perhaps? Not sure where you can find Peruvian cuisine in Malaysia? Well, here’s one: Brasaria. Located at Jaya One, Petaling Jaya, Brasaria offers a variety of mouthwatering Peruvian food on their menu.
I had an opportunity to dine at Brasaria recently and here’s sharing with you some of the items that my family and I tried from the menu:
Pollo a la Brasa, a delicious pit roasted chicken that has come to be synonymous with Peruvian food worldwide. This chicken dish are marinated overnight in a blend of spices and then turned gently over a live fire. Available in three different sizes: El Nino, El Gordo and El Jefe, diners can choose between quarter, half or a whole chicken. Served with the signature Brasaria Aji sauce.
Brasaria Rice. This is Peruvian yellow rice with raisins. Not too bad. It was quite flavourful, even eaten on its own.
Pesto Spaghetti I didn’t managed to have a taste of this. My wife finished this off before I could touch the plate. Picky eater as she is, I guess this must have tasted good.
El Sánguche is a sandwich dish where pulled roasted chicken is wrapped in a Ciabatta bun and served with a side of cassava chips. A fuss free meal. Great for those who are in a rush.
Elote This simple corn on cob dish is very flavourful and highly addictive.
Latin Trio is simply roasted sweet potatoes, plantain and pineapples. Very filling dish and contains lotsa fibre.
Salchipapas. Deep fried french fries with slices of chicken frankfurters served with a dipping sauce of your choice.
El Pollo Pie Roasted chicken pie served with a side of salad. This was to die for and another one of those dish that’s on my must order list at Brasaria.
Tres Leches Cake was our dessert. It was ab airy sponge cake soaked with a mixture of three kinds of milks: evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream.
Overall the dining experience over here is pleasant. Would I give this place a revisit? Yes, definitely. And I will be sure to order more El Pollo Pie next time around.
