Mancora Restaurant and Bar Coupons and Deals
Mancora Restaurant and Bar brings a taste of Peru to the heart of the East Village. Seashell chandeliers and octopus murals line the walls, creating a unique take on Peruvian décor. With much of the staff hailing from Peru’s capital city of Lima, dishes range from traditional specialties to mainstream recipes featuring milder sauces. Their chiccha morada, a spicy and sweet pineapple punch packed with delicious flavors remains a crowd favorite, as do their ceviches and various tapas. Enjoy half off Mancora’s classic Peruvian food and drinks for either brunch or lunch prix-fixe menus.
Why You Should Go: Perhaps no city in the world has a broader mix of ethnic food than New York. But while Chinese, Italian, Japanese and Mexican restaurants abound, one of the world’s most flavorful cuisines continues to be underrepresented. Luckily Mancora is the only Peruvian restaurant you need, serving lip-smacking seafood, chicken and steak just like they do in Lima. What You Should Know: Praised by The New York Times and Zagat, Mancora has become the East Village’s go-to spot for all of your favorite Peruvian dishes. Peruvian fare is the product of generations of immigrants from Europe, Asia and Africa descending upon South America, adding their own cultural touches to Peru’s traditional ingredients of corn, potatoes and beans. What You Should Try: Start with a mouth-watering app like Empanadas de Cangrejo y Camaron (crab meat and shrimp) or the Tamalito Puerco (pork tamale). Seafood lovers need to try the Paella Marinera or one of seven ceviches like the Salmon Caper Ceviche. For meatier appetites, try the perfectly-seasoned Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken, the Seco Norteno (stewed lamb chops) or the Churrasco a lo Mancora (grilled sirloin steak).
