    The place where you can enjoy the pio pio style south american roasted chicken and some Lomein or other delish Chinese dishes at the same time. Also have great lunch specials.

    Favorite Peruvian roast chicken place. It's way better than Pio Pio! The squid ink fried rice and green pastas are ridiculously awesome too.

    Flor De Mayo isn't a fusion restaurant — rather, both cuisines coexist harmoniously on a menu that may seem like a cut and paste job at first glance.

    One of the only, and the best, Cubano Chino restaurants in NYC. Start with the Sangria and then dive into some Peruvian Chicken with Roast Pork Fried Rice. Beware of the crowds!
