Truth be told, aside from some Pisco Sours, I really haven’t had Peruvian food, at least, not to my knowledge. So, I had to try out Panca in the West Village. Immediately, upon arrival, you feel the authenticity. This isn’t a “Peruvian” restaurant, run by just anyone, it’s staffed with people from Peru. And right at the entrance, you’ll see a small prep/kitchen area where you can watch the food being prepared. To start, I ordered a Maracuya Sour (Pisco, passion fruit, fresh lime juice, egg whites, simple syrup). So good. It’s all the excellence of a Pisco Sour, with the addition of the tangy sweetness of passion fruit. No complaints on this one.
