My favorite bite was the Empanada de Choclo stuffed with sweet corn, aji amarillo, and mozzarella cheese. I probably had 3 or 4 of these delicious hot pockets.
Keith enjoyed the Lamb Anticucho Skewers. Little lamb meatballs were topped with a pickled cucumber and served with a garlic-yogurt sauce and mint.
He also sampled the Beef Filet Anticucho Skewers with aji panca marinade, potato-corn salad, and a spicy aji salsa.
Another favorite bite were the Spanish Ham Croquettes. Served with Chinese mustard for added heat, the croquettes were also topped with a chipotle chili aioli and stuffed with emmental cheese.
All in all, Toro Toro provides an alternative and modern lounge experience to accompany the churrasco steakhouse fare. The location is very convenient in Downtown and would be a great spot for business meetings and movers and shakers.
