Runa Peruvian Cuisine Red Bank

I was making my weekly run to Bagel Oven and noticed a sign for this restaurant. I did a google search and it looks like it has been in the works since 2012 and hopefully opening soon. It is going to be located where Eurasian Eatery was . I've never had Peruvian food, but it looked delicious on No Reservations. I wonder if they'll have cuy.

  1. hopefully lots of cerviche and pisco :)

    1. There is (was?) a Peruvian restaurant in Old Bridge, Tete Bistronomie Matawan, in the Marketplace II on Route 34. (I say "was?" because its domain expired a week ago and hasn't been renewed.) We ate there for lunch one day and were unimpressed--everything seemed very salty. However, there might be a better selection at dinner.

      1. We need some decent ceviche in Monmouth County. My current source is Latin Grill in Perth Amboy.

        1. Don't laugh.. okay, wait, you can laugh.. but the only experience I've had with Peruvian cuisine was about 2-3 years ago when Friday's (yes.. the chain) offered their version of Peruvian chicken. It was the best entree they ever served. That explains why it didn't last long and was replaced with something substandard.

          Okay, I googled this, and it was more like SIX years ago. But anyway.. I still remember the taste, and would love to have something like that again. Or just make my own.

            You should go check out Super Pollo in Brick. Awesome Peruvian chicken and other things.

              Just made Peruvian chicken for the first time last week. Very, very good! Not that difficult once you gather all the ingredients. The green sauce is a must! Recipe available if you're interested.

                    That looks delicious! Nice job gampart! I like the fact you used a little garnish on your green sauce, individual salt and pepper grinder and you serve yourself on a food tray at home! Ha! Are you a in living room in front of TV eater on a TV table?
