Samba Puts a Festive Peruvian Twist to Your Holidays

In 2016, Chef Carlo Huerta introduced his culture and its cuisine by opening Samba at Shangri-La at the Fort. As the country’s first authentic Peruvian restaurant, it has since had a stellar following for its uniquely vibrant menu. Though full of exciting spices, Chef Carlo wants his guests to experience the love he puts into every palatable plate as if tasting a favorite home-cooked meal. And, more so, enjoy them with the people they care about the most.

A Feast Fit for the Family at Samba

With the holidays here, why not celebrate the season the Peruvian way and check out Samba’s festive menu?

Several dinner sets are available on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. These comprise delightful dishes masterfully combining Peruvian flavors with the bounty of land and sea, and a welcome tiki cocktail.

The mildly spiced Ceviche de Conchas y Camarónen Crema de Rocoto, hearty Crema de Zapallo y Ají, and exotic surf ‘n’ turf Lomo a lo Macho are just some of the enticing appetizers and entrées in the five-course meals.

For those looking to share, Chef Carlo and his team prepared an equally indulgent family-style spread for Christmas Day. The tender Mero Picante con Camarones—a chargrilled grouper served with smooth fava bean puree—will make you want more, no matter how stuffed you are.

Samba also offers New Year’s Eve dinner that could be the best last meal of the year you’ll ever have. This includes the flawless Zamba de Chocolate whose well-balanced elements serve as a perfect ending to your 2018.

If you haven’t had enough, take part in the New Year’s Day lunch spread of fresh seafood indoors or poolside. We can’t think of a better way to end and start another year!
