Los Andes reminded me a lot of La Gran in NE. For that reason, I will probably not go back since we have similar restaurant much closer.
The Humitas were popular at the table. Everyone liked them including our son. My main dish reminded me a lot of fried rice and also of the tamale filling I had at La Gran. Rice, veggies and pieces of meat, not terribly flavorable, but not totally without taste. I wish I had been a bit more brave and ordered the guinea pig, but I could not quite go there. That is perhaps one difference between Los Andes and La Gran. I did not see that dish on La Gran's menu. But I still will probably not go back.
I enjoyed the meal at Los Andes Restaurant, but in my opinion it was not as good as La Gran. I really liked the traditional corn bread as an appetizer, although the cheese fell a little flat. The top sirloin steak in the plato montanero entrťe was good, but could have been better quality. It was served with some fried side pork that is probably a heart attack waiting to happen; the flavor is average - not worth the fat or calories. The beans were average to good, and it was nice to have an avocado on the plate. Needless to say, it was a large plate of food, enough to fill the hungriest of appetites.
The restaurant is located on Lake Street with a bus stop right outside the window, so the people watching adds to the experience. But I almost lost my appetite when I saw the photo of one of their entrees, guinea pig, which I could not bring myself to order. Iím sure itís fine for those who like it; itís just not for me.
