Lomito Fino al Portobello

The Novotel hotel in Lima has a lovely restaurant that is beautifully arrayed in simple but strong shades of orange and brown, decorated by pottery inspired by ancient Peruvian civilizations.

For tonight's dinner I chose the Beef Tenderloin with Portobello Mushrooms. It was a delight to both eye and tongue. Rather than your usual shapeless blob, the mashed potatoes were a visual treat with portobello mushrooms nestled between layers of tasty, creamy yellow potatoes. The beef was perfectly cooked and dressed with luscious portobello mushrooms and gravy. And the vegetables added both a bright, colorful contrast for the eye, and a crisp, tasty treat for the palate. A perfect blend of flavors for a very satisfying dinner.
