    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!

    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.

    The Tallarin Verde with Camarones al Ajillo, pasta coated in Peruvian pesto and topped with meaty shrimp doused liberally with garlic, is guaranteed to become your new food craving. Full review link: Read more

    If you understand English, Spanish and Chinese, the menu can get a little overwhelming - just stick with one language.

    Awesome place. Great value for money! Take the Sangria, lomo saltado and the 1/2 chicken with rice. Just great.

    The "Lomo Saltado" is their signature dish... But on fri & sat, they serve the legendary "chupe de camarón" which is a signature semi spicy soup to DIE for... Their "nutcrackers" are legendary as well

    I usually start with a nutcracker, get a lobster tail in deviled sauce with white or yellow rice and tostones and finish off with ANOTHER NUTCRACKER..perfect date spot

    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.

    Half chicken with house special fried rice will never go wrong. Try the salt and pepper squid. Mmmm.

    This place is usually the first stop I make when I visit NYC. The Super nutcrackers are the best, and the food is awesome. You can pick a random item from the menu, and I guarantee it'll be good!

    The Lomo Saltado and Pollo a la Brasa fulfills the rare trinity of food in Manhattan: cheap, good, and filling.
