Peruvian food is not easy to find in the East Bay, but chef Carlos Altamirano is almost singlehandedly filling that void. Paradita is Altamirano’s sixth restaurant in the Bay Area; his Walnut Creek Parada, a sit-down eatery, is Paradita’s sister restaurant. The menu is quite large and consists of bowls, sandwiches, snacks, and anticuchos, or meat skewers. There’s also pollo a la brasa, Peruvian rotisserie chicken made using Mary's Free Range birds, served half or whole with sweet potato or regular fries and two dipping sauces: huacaina, a creamy yellow-colored sauce made from feta cheese, milk and mild yellow peppers; and a bright parsley-based chimichurri verde sauce.
