Chef/owners Jorge Siguencia Fernandez and his wife Daisy opened this Peruvian-Italian-restaurant at 592 Main Street in Hyannis a few years ago.
Tumi Ceviche Bar & Ristorante is a marriage between traditional and modern Peruvian and Italian kitchens. The dining room, with an open kitchen, is very cozy with a touch of Peruvian paintings and authentic music.
A must try cocktail before dinner is the traditional Ocucaje Pisco Sour, made with fresh Lime Juice, egg white, simple Syrup, Angostura bitters and traditional Peruvian Pisco liquor.
The menu features classic Italian dishes, such as beef braciole, which is rolled with Italian meats, mozzarella cheese, roasted garlic and red pepper, spinach, served with linguini garlic and oil. Also fetuccine a la Huancayna, a homemade fettuccine , crispy prosciutto, aji Amarillo cream sauce and parmegiano- reggiano
For an appetizer I ordered the Peruvian style rocoto relleno, stuffed peppers with ground meat, aji panca, raisins, mozzarella cheese and a boiled egg.
For an entree a melt in your mouth grilled salmon andino, a wood grilled salmon fillet, served with Peruvian tacu tacu (caramelized rice and lentils), sautéed grapes and red wine vinaigrette reduction.
For an appetizer my husband had the Peruvian homemade empanadas, stuffed with chicken and Peruvian spices. His main entree was the beef braciole. We both agreed these dishes were prepared better than we ever had.
We were delighted when Daisy, the owner, served our dinner.
The piece de resistance was the tres leches cake. Not to be missed.
The other part of the menu features authentic Peruvian dishes, including the ceviche which is a very popular dish in South America. The basic ingredient is raw fish, cut into bite-size pieces and marinated in the juice of a lime, salt, and seasonings. The citric acid in the juice changes the texture of the fish, keeping the raw taste.
In addition to the regular menu they offer a prix fixe 4 course menu from
$27 -$30 which include a glass of wine or beer.
We can't wait to return for the amazing food with generous portions, very friendly staff, and awesome decor.
Last month we wrote a review on their other restaurant that just opened last year.
