Like scratch-and-sniff stickers, international cuisine can be colorful, aromatic, and hard to remove from a wall. Keep authentic dishes on the table with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of Peruvian grill fare at Aguaymanto, located in Chantilly, Virginia.
Named for a berry that's native to Peru’s Andes Mountains and harvested by the Inca, Aguaymanto enlists authentic Peruvian ingredients and grilling techniques to roast rotisserie chicken, steak, and seafood. A sunny-side-up egg crowns churrasco a lo pobre ($14.99), a fried knuckle steak accessorized with chimichurri sauce, a fried banana, and its own court jester. Aji de gallina ($12.95) douses pulled chicken, fresh cheese, and walnuts in a creamy sauce imbued with the mildly spicy and nutty flavors of Peruvian yellow peppers, and pescado en salsa de mariscos ($16.95) swathes a fried tilapia fillet in a seafood elixir assembled from mussels, calamari, and shrimp. Peruvian corn kernels, jasmine rice, and Machu Picchu’s own rowboats wade through chupe de camarones ($12.95), a shrimp-based chowder made with milk.
