  • Samba in BGC Flaunts Authentic Peruvian Flavors
  • Latin American cuisine is not too common in the Philippines, but a couple of restaurants pop up every now and then.

    Despite its lack of popularity, Shangri-La at the Fort took a chance and opened Samba in 2016, with the tagline “Taste the Flavors of Peru.”

    This South American nation is making a mark in the culinary world, and Samba successfully features its fresh flavors and colorful dishes under the watchful eye of Chef Carlo Huerto Echegaray, a native of Cusco, Peru.

    It’s not a Peruvian feast if the starter isn’t a proper Peruvian dish–and what could be truer to Peru than ceviche?

    Samba has a couple of choices, but the Ceviche Limeno (Php 550) is always the best one. You don’t have to worry as the octopus is cooked really well that it melts in your mouth. The onions add a subtle, spicy bite that cuts through the lime-based marinade, while the coriander provides a fresh and cleansing feel.

    For your grilled food cravings, order the Anticucho de Pulpo (Php 590). The char-grilled octopus is accompanied by roasted potatoes, ocopa sauce, and panca pepper.

    We also recommend you try their Arroz con Mariscos (Php 790). This Peruvian seafood rice contains squid, octopus, shrimp, and scallops. The paprika creole seasoning gives the rice its golden color and smoky aroma, as well as its salty and spicy flavor.

    Samba also takes pride in their beverage program so have a glass (or two), and enjoy the view of their al fresco dining while having a bite of Peru’s best dishes!
