My dinner at Alma - cocina viva was one of the finest that I ate in Peru. The prices are high, even by American standards (approximately $80 US for two people), but the food is really exquisite. The chef offered to make a vegan pasta dish for my entree, but I opted to make a meal out of several appetizers instead. My companion and I shared the Andean minestrone (made with quinoa, fava beans, corn, yellow potatoes and vegetables), the grilled vegetable napoleon (a stack of grilled vegetables served with arugula pesto and balsamic reduction) and the warm corn cakes (served with vegetable ragout and avocado puree). The chef was happy to leave the cheese off of the latter two dishes, which were still very flavorful with the omission. For dessert, the chef made us fruit tempura, drizzled with purple corn syrup and served with a fruit sorbet.
