Tapas is cool and sassy, so we couldn’t wait to try the brand new Lima’s Tapas Bar in Montecasino. This Latin-American fusion restaurant is everything and more!
There is so much to be excited about because it ticks all the right boxes. Lima’s is a showstopper, the crème de la crème. We may be based in Craighall Park but it’s totally worth the schlep.
When you sink your teeth into this food you’ll understand why we can’t stop raving about it. Chef Justine Joseph is 24 years old and visited South America to experience authentic tapas. She’s trained at The Hilton and the Four Seasons and has worked at DW Eleven-13. She’s a gem and has commended the Latin American culture in her gastronomy.
The menu is extensive so we’ve picked some of our favourites.
Pick your poison
HJ recommends the Nikkei Mule – sultry and spicy, it’s served in a copper mug with Bacardi Gold, jalapeno and lemon juice. It’s shaken, strained and topped with ginger beer. We love the Blood Orange Mojito – it’s the Lima twist on the classic and is a concoction of muddled lime, Bacardi Superior, mint and sugar over crushed ice with blood orange juice. Try the English tea set collection (which comes served in an actual tea set) and The Don – tequila, tea, vanilla, apple and lemon juice. Wowzers!
Select your snack
HJ recommends the soft shell tacos – salmon, tuna, beef, veggie, pork or chicken. They’re all delectable! We love the salmon ceviche served with corn and sweet potato in Leche De Tigre. Try the selection of sushi, especially the sushi burgers! That’s reason enough to visit!
