Ima koko Building First Floor Alley in Shichiken Cho, Aoi ku, Shizuoka City is steadily filling up with cozy and small bars and restaurants!
The newest place to move in is “Fiesta Garcia” Beer Bar & Restaurante owned and managed by a Shizuoka City Peruvian citizen going by the name of Fredy Garcia!
A very open and welcoming place indeed!
A small corner of the Andean country!
A smiling skull is looking after you over a small counter!
The place is tiny and every available space is used!
Bottled craft beers from all over the world are in front (and behind) of you!
My beer for this (too short) first visit!
Do have a good look at the drink you!
And have an even longer look at food menu!
There are quite a few unusual things in wait for you!
Now, this is quite unusual, and would be anywhere in Japan because Fredy and his older brother make their own Peruvian-style queso/cheese in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!
Don’t worry, I will soon interview them at work at their dairy!
The above is fresh queso blanco, a bit similar to semi hard cottage cheese cut into wedges and pan-fried on a little oil and served with mayo sauce, hot mayo sauce and yuzu koshio!
And this is even better:
Top, left, queso blanco in queso fredo style/fresh cheese (the same as the fried one).
Top, right, manchego-style cheese processed in a different way and matured for some time.
Bottom left, queso albino where white wine was added to the milk when making the rice and later washed in red wine!
Bottom right, home semi-dried tomatoes!
The menu might be short, but it will give me plenty of reasons to come back and visit my new friend, Fredy Garcia!
