Peruvian Food Festival Taking It Outside This Year

Posted By on Tue, Jul 6, 2010 at 10:32 AM

Local fans of Peruvian cuisine will be able to satisfy their cravings at the city's second annual Festival de Comida Peruana, scheduled for Sunday, July 18.

Demand for last year's festival (check out the vid above) exceeded the capacity of the enclosed venue. So this time, organizers have selected space outdoors at Civic Center Plaza. In addition to food, the event will feature merchandise vendors, Peruvian musicians, and dance performances.

Local Peruvian restaurants participating this year include Fresca and El Perol. They'll be joined by many restaurants and caterers from the South Bay and East Bay ― 20 food vendors in all, offering a smorgasbord of traditional dishes like lomo saltado, ceviche, anticuchos, aji de gallina, tamales, papa a la huancaina, rocoto relleno, causa, picarones, lucuma ice cream, and many more.

And don't forget the beverages: Inca Kola, chicha morada (a nonalcoholic drink made from purple corn), Peruvian pisco, and Cerveza Cusqueña. We can't help drooling in anticipation.

Festival de Comida Peruana

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
