Alpaca and Andean Potatoes in Peru

What to do for my first dinner in a foreign country, where I do not speak the native language well?

Naturally, I decided to try the hotel restaurant, Inversiones lo Rioja. In the mood for something like but exotic, I tried the Alpaca and Andean Potatoes. The roasted alpaca was served rare. It was tender enough to cut with a fork, with a bit more flavor than beef. The crunchy layers of andean potatoes were thin slices of potatoe fried to a crispy crunch. The arugula salad rounded this light apetizer into a tasty light meal.

Overall, it satisfied the "exotic but satisfying" need.
