Pig out with a feast fit for a medieval king at Andina Shoreditch.
Ready to feed tables of 10 to 12 pals, the restaurant’s suckling roast piglet is served with cassava and broad beans along with your choice of sides. It looks PRETTY GOOD.
Andina’s Peruvian heritage influences the preparation, with Panca Chilli Sauce, Chicha Morada and pisco all contributing to the mouthwatering marinade. [See also: a pastel-pink vegan restaurant just opened in Shoreditch.]
For smaller appetites, the all-day menu offers a cavalcade of colourful dishes created from seasonal English ingredients and inspired by Peruvian recipes.
Try the hot pork chicharron sandwich, jazzy beetroot tiradito or mouthwatering grilled octopus – Andina handles breakfasts, brunches, lunches and dinners with equal aplomb, from casual street food to proper ‘Big Plates.’
If you want that epic porcine platter, however, you’ll need to pre-order at least five days before. It’ll set you back £260 or just under £22 per head if you split it twelve ways. Bon appetit!
