Mango Peruvian Cuisine-Downtown

1101 Lucas Ave. St. Louis, MO 63101 | St. Louis - Washington Avenue | 314-621-9993

Location Description:

Chef Jorge Calvo has opened a downtown location of his popular Shrewsbury eatery - still St. Louis' only Peruvian restaurant. The menu features a broad selection of traditional dishes that draw from Spanish and indigenous cuisine as well as Asian and Western European influences. Ceviche is a national dish, here available with tilapia, tart and spicy, or with shrimp and mussels. Beef, chicken and seafood entrées predominate. Saltado de langostinos brings lovely shrimp in an olive oil-white wine reduction, while aji de gallina features a unique blend of chicken, walnut, chiles and cream.
