La Brasa Peruvian Kitchen
If you're looking for an exciting and delicious dining experience in Oklahoma City, look no further than La Brasa Peruvian Kitchen. Conveniently located next to Kamp's on Classen in a sleek, modern space, La Brasa specializes in the cuisine of Peru. Influenced by a great variety of food traditions, Peruvian cuisine brings in elements from Japan, Spain, China and even Africa, while embracing ingredients and techniques that are unique to Peru. Tropical fruit, chiles and, of course, the bounty of the sea are presented in innovative and delicious ways in Peruvian meals.
The menu at La Brasa is filled with these classic Peruvian dishes. One of the iconic dishes is ceviche, fresh fish or shellfish marinated, or "cooked," in a mixture of citrus juices, served with different combinations of onions, avocado, fruit, chilies and plantain chips. While seafood is a vital part of the cuisine, La Brasa also highlights Peruvian beef dishes. Tacu Tacu, a popular dish made with a mix of Afro-Peruvian rice and beans that is quickly stir-fried is served with a certified Angus rib-eye steak, fried egg and fried plantains. Each dish comes with your choice of traditional sauce.
Arguably the specialty of the house is the Pollo a la Brasa, a mouth-watering whole chicken, marinated over 24 hours in a 20-spice marinade and spit-roasted over charcoal. The skin is crispy and the meat is moist and succulent. Split a whole chicken between three or four hungry people or try to tackle the half chicken by yourself or with a friend. Don't miss out on their delectable tres leches cake or mango custard for dessert before you leave. La Brasa also has a fully stocked bar with specialty cocktails, various wines and several different Oklahoma-brewed craft beers on tap.
