Menu Details from Head Chef Mark:

- Locro - Vegan Soup: A hearty thick squash stew, associated with native Andean civilizations and popular among the Andes mountain range. It's one of the national dishes of Peru and Northwest Argentina. The dish is a classic squash, corn, beans and potato or pumpkin soup. In some regions, locro is made using a specific kind of potato called "papa chola" which has a unique taste and is difficult to find outside of its home region.


- Gallina Empanadas: A pastry or turnover that is filled with savory ingredients and served hot. The name comes from the verb "empanar" meaning to wrap or coast in bread or dough. These are stuffed with pulled chicken, sweet roasted peppers, tomatoes, green onions, lime and Spanish onions.
