The permeating flavor in most Peruvian food is aji, or the Peruvian chile pepper, and of the 38 menu choices found on the Fresca dinner menu, 22 feature some form of aji. The most well known, the spicy aji amarillo (yellow chile), is found in numerous selections, from the Lenguado Ceviche ($12), where it bathes the sliced halibut in a citrusy marinade, to the Picante de Mariscos ($19.50), or seafood stew, where it lends its distinct flavor in the form of a rich and creamy sauce.
