El Aguajal London Reviews

Kingsland Road - Teething Problems? - Last night I did what I like doing, and tried a place out that I had seen being renovated over the last month or so..
'Peruvian!?!' I thought, 'how exotic!!'
So, last night instead of one of our much trusted Vietnamese in Shoreditch, we took my visiting mother-in-law to El Aguajal on Kingsland Road just before Dalston Junction.
We were hoping for something really different - we were massively dissappointed.
It's hard to judge the quality of the food having never eaten Peruvian, but it was extremely bland at best.
Things didn't start well when the 'Hot cocktails' we ordered (a fiver each) tasted like fresh orange juice with ice. We asked if they were correctly made and were told they were..
My starter of Cassava (which the waitress told us was the same as Plantain) ended up to be a rather odd mix of deep fried tasteless powdery root vegetable with an instant cheese sauce.. disappointing.
I then had the Seafood Chowder with rice for main course.
This was at least a large quantity. The quality was unfortunately lacking!
It was made up of a creamy soup with 3 king prawns, chopped up crab sticks(!)and what I was inclined to believe was some cheap 'frozen seafood medley' from a local supermarket. Hardly worth the £9 paid..
My fiance had a seafood platter that was 85% deep fried squid and served on a bed of lettuce - £11.00!
The entire meal cost us £18 per head and we all felt thoroughly underwhelmed and slightly cheated.
We really should've gone for Vietnamese!!
