Where to Get a Good Pisco Sour in Boston

leave a comment »

pisco-sourIn search for a nice place to grab dinner in Boston, my sister took me to this restaurant called “Orinoco”.

Despite not having Peruvian dishes (more of a Venezuelan/Latin American cuisine style), to my surprise they made this great pisco sour. Spoke with the bar tender who isn’t Peruvian, and he pretty much gave me the original Peruvian recipe which explains why it was so good!

I went to one of their two locations in 22 Harvard Street in the Brookline area (off the train – or “T” as they call it here – stop). Their other location is in 477 Shawmut Avenue in the Boston area.

You should check it out if you are in the Boston area. Click here to go to their website.
