After the Hartford Stage production of 'Fences' [great], we ate at Piolín.
This is a Peruvian restaurant and it seemed that we were the only non-Peruvians there [good sign].
They put garlic bread, toasted corn and a dip [foamy green innocent-looking but with a bite] on the table.
Three entrées: Fried Fish with Vegetables, Fried Fish in Garlic Sauce and Beef Stew. The vegetables on the first entrée were sauteed onions and peppers, the garlic sauce was a mild brown sauce chock-full of sliced garlic and the beef in the stew was two good sized pieces of pot roast over white beans and an onion salsa. The white rice was good and plentiful.
Three desserts: flan, buding [rice pudding] and zapote ice cream. Googled 'zapote' and got not much info on this tropical fruit which makes an orange icecream with a distinctive flavor. Try it!
bloginfo: Piolín is open from 11am every day and is located at 417 New Britain Avenue in Hartford, CT and Piolín means Tweety Bird.
blognote: the servings are large and inexpensive
