Description

Summary: A vibrant Peruvian culinary journey.

Coracora brings a slice of Peru to life with its authentic cuisine and vibrant atmosphere. Step inside and you're immediately wrapped in the warmth of cuddly alpaca wool hangings and vivid table coverings, while traditional dance routines play on video screens, setting the mood for an immersive cultural experience. The menu is a delight to explore, boasting an array of traditional dishes that promise to transport your taste buds to the heart of Peru. Whether you're indulging in the Cora Orgia Marina—a generous appetizer platter perfect for sharing—or savoring the acclaimed Chupe de Quinua con Camarones, a creamy Andean shrimp soup, there's something to satisfy every craving. Even less adventurous diners will find comfort in familiar options like fried fish filets and whole roasted chicken. But the true stars of the show are the quinoa-based dishes, a testament to the ancient grain revered by the Incas. End your meal on a high note with the lucuma fruit ice cream, an Andean specialty that offers a unique taste sensation reminiscent of coffee, caramel, and pumpkin pie. Coracora's menu is a celebration of Peruvian flavors, offering everything from lomo saltado to rotisserie chicken in a relaxed and friendly setting.
