Mayta Peruvian Cuisine, Lan Kwai Fong, Central

Mayta is the latest edition to the Dining Concept Chain, which has taken over the space formerly occupied by Blue Smoke BBQ. Mayta is located in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong, the restaurant is quite spacious, the vibe is very laid back and when we were there for lunch they had pretty cool music in the background.

We went for lunch, the set menu is quite a good deal to be honest. Chef’s buffet section for HKD118 which consists of soup of the day, ceviche station, salads and desserts. For an extra HKD50 you can order some mains. We however, wanted a la carte.

The boys started with the ceviche – classic – sea bass, red onion, choclo, cancha, glazed sweet potato with classic leche de tigre (HKD158). The boys absolutely loved it, it was light, refreshing and they absolutely adored the sauce!

I couldn’t go past the pan con chicharron – steamed buns, crispy pork, rococo chill aioli, fried sweet potato and pickles (HKD138) – OH MY! These babies were incredibly, soft steamed buns, the crispy pork was to die for – it was just heavenly! Pretty sure I could have eaten all of them at once!

We really enjoyed the Aji De Gallina (HKD198) – crispy pan chicken breast, yellow chili sauce, baby potatoes, sautéed spinach, quail egg and black olives. The chicken was incredibly tender, the hello chili sauce was delicious. One of my favourite mains I have to say.

The cazuela criolla (HKD178) – veal cheek stew, red wine, yellow chili beans, baby carrots, piquillo peppers, crispy potato and pickles were also good but bit on the heavy side. It’s definitely a winters dish. The veal cheeks were tender that it melted in your mouth.

Being the greedy diners that we are, we thought we would order one more thing. In hindsight we should have probably ordered another serving of the pork buns, however, A could not stop suggesting the Arroz Con Pato (HKD188) – beer cilantro rice, duck leg confit, choclo, piquillo peppers and baby carrots. The confit duck was not as tender as we had hoped. It was a little dry unfortunately. However, the duck breast was tender and delicious. The cilantro rice was nice but not for me. It was a very colourful dish though!

Service was polite and friendly and our waitress knew all the dishes on the menu which was good! ‘The Mother’ came back with his colleagues a week later to have the buffet and he said that it was definitely good value.

    There’s a lot of talk about Peruvian cuisine being the next big thing. I do love ceviche but I reckon the pan con chicharron (surely a little fusion happening there!) sounds like a winner!
