Dinner at Isabella's

I've never had Peruvian food, as there is little in the South American cuisine department in Singapore. Even the 'Mexican' restaurants are really more Tex-Mex than Mex. So I was definitely looking forward to Saturday's dinner at Isabella's in San Jose. It's a colourful little restaurant, with friendly waitstaff, and a big screen TV plays latin music videos. Unfortunately, I was too busy eating (and taking photos) to take down the names of the dishes....

We start out with some ceviche

and loads of fried seafood and corn nuts (these corn nuts are great for snacking on!)

It's a kind of paella, although far more buttery and creamy. Very rich but oh so tasty.

Seafood cooked in a white wine sauce.

For dessert, a kind of donut with a sweet, alcohol-infused sauce.

Birthday cake

Other stuff ordered but not photographed: lomo saltado (steak) and a version of fried rice (both of which I was too full to try. But of course, there's always a separate compartment for dessert)
