    A lil up scale Peruvian restaurant it is a bit pricey. El Rocoto is the way to go over don mario, pollo inca. Food is tasteful service is usually acceptable. Try their Ceviche de pescado.

    Carne a lo pobre is very similar to bistek a lo pobre, but with a rib eye steak instead of a flat bistek.

    Can't go wrong with the Lomo Saltado. The portions are huge so be hungry - leave happy.

    Servicio rápido pero eso sigue sin hacerme fan de la comida peruana. La suprema empanizada tenía mucha grasa.
