The only thing I liked were the tamal and the yuca a la Huancaína. Everything else was just okay... Our waiter was super nice.

The only thing that I truly liked was the yuca a la Huancaína sauce and the tamales. I honestly didn’t like the Seco de gallina and the Tallarín Verde. The chicken apanado was good, but the sauce for both wasn’t as bold as I’ve had it before.

Love that it is still BYOB! The food is delicious! A hidden gem in the Mayfair neighborhood.

About Ay Ay Picante

Peru is the cradle of modern cuisine—a fact that Ay Ay Picante's owners, Don Jaime Bardales and Doña Chamuca Bardales, haven't forgotten. Native to the nation are now-common staples such as potatoes, corn, tomatoes, avocados, and chilies—all of which blend with traditional spices throughout the Peruvian chefs' extensive board of fare. The signature ceviche, for instance, marinates tilapia in lime juice and rocoto chilies. A marinade of fish sauce similarly enlivens the grilled shrimp and salmon kebabs. But the global influence of Andean cooking makes itself known in the fried-rice dishes, which bring out the flavors of Peruvian peppers and mushrooms with a dollop of soy sauce and garlic. This blend of customary and contemporary has garnered respectful nods from both WTTW's Check, Please! and ABC7's Hungry Hound.

History doesn't just influence the menu at Ay Ay Picante. It also influences the very walls of the dining room. As diners sip BYOB beverages, they can examine pre-Columbian murals from the Peruvian Nazca culture. These hark back to the giant images the Nazca created in the desert sand, which can only be seen when flying in an airplane or soaring between a human cannon and a landing pad.
