Somos Peru's crema volteada: 50 Favorite Dishes, no. 50
A lone slice of chef Isabel's crema volteada at Somos Peru
As a countdown to the Best of the Twin Cities 2013, coming April 17, the Hot Dish is serving up 50 of our favorite local dishes.
Flan is divisive thing. Some people find it texturally off-putting, whereas the pro-custard among us prefer it even to a slice of pie or piece of chocolate cake. Whatever your position on this very Old World dessert, if you're going to have flan, you want the best. Well, we here at the Hot Dish can tell you that the best flan currently being served in the Twin Cities is the crema volteada, a fabulous Peruvian-style flan, at Somos Peru in the Windom neighborhood of Minneapolis.
She doesn't make it every single day, but if you happen to be at Somos Peru when chef Isabel Custodio has arrived early and made a big batch of crema volteada with enough time to allow it to set to that perfect wobbly consistency, then please for the love of all that is sweet and caramelized, order it.
