La Feria

412-682-4501  •  $$
ADDRESS: 5527 Walnut St , Pittsburgh, PA 15232
CUISINE: Latin/South American, Peruvian, Sandwiches, Brunch
FEATURES: BYOB, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly
DESCRIPTION
After combing through the mass of original Peruvian art and clothing at La Feria - just up the stairs from breakfast stalwart Pamela's Diner in the Shadyside neighborhood - you'll find the small dining area, where the food is out of the ordinary. The kitchen serves vegetarian-friendly traditional Peruvian cuisine with African, Indian and Creole influences. Starters include local favorites sweet potato chips and spicy beef empanadas, while sandwiches include ropa vieja (spicy shredded beef on French loaf) and pavo asado (turkey breast, lettuce and spicy mayo on a French loaf). Special entrées can include ceviche de pollo (shredded chicken marinated in a fresh lemon and cilantro sauce). Try bread pudding with caramel sauce or the chocolate cake for dessert. Reservations for groups of six or more for dinner.
"This isn't strictly authentic Peruvian cuisine. For one thing, Peru is known for its seafood, and La Feria serves almost none. La Feria's success lies in adapting Peruvian cuisine to fit within the constraints of a small kitchen and a dining room that is also a store."
- China Millman, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, May 29, 2008
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Kids' menu. No alcohol available. BYOB. Serving brunch-lunch daily, dinner Mon-Sat.
