Week 15 - La Mar

Today we went to La Mar, a schmancy Peruvian seafood place.  They have a big, fancy restaurant, which we didn't set foot in.  But out front they have a separate bar, which was small and sun-filled, and had a happy hour (daily, 3:00 to 6:00).

We had a nice time and the happy hour prices were very reasonable, but the food and drinks were hit or miss.  The Passion Daiquiri was meh, the Pisco Punch was OK, the Prickly Pear Margaritas were fantastic.

We got the Cebichin Mixto (catch of the day, very good), Chicharrón de Pollo Antichuchero (fried chicken, Nalani thought good, Ben thought OK), the Causa Limeña (potato and Dungeness crab, great), the Pancito con Chicharrón (pork belly sandwich, Ben thought great, Nalani thought OK), and the calamari, which was the only thing we got that was really not good, we didn't finish it.  (Nalani wants to know: how do you screw up calamari?)

Not the place for you if you don't like red onions.

Would We Go There Again

We wouldn't go out of our way, but La Mar is down on the Embarcadero, a pleasant stroll from the South Beach Marina, and we would totally come here again for happy hour after a day of sailing.

  1. This might be how one screws up "calamari" --
