Dinner with Stephan Pyles is always going to be an adventure, as it was on our most recent visit to the chef’s latest incarnation on Ross Avenue, San Salvaje. Here you will savor flavors from most anywhere south of Harlingen, Texas. This would include Mexico, Central and South America, and a heavy influence from Peru, the true breadbasket of the planet.
Peru has no less than 3,000 varieties of potatoes, 2,000 species of fish, 650 varieties of native fruits. With 7 centuries of history and many influences, Peruvian cuisine is essentially based on Inca tradition tempered by many waves of migration. To mark his menu with dishes he found on a variety of excursions to Peru, chef Pyles has the perfect soundboard for a variety of flavors., and he does them very well.
