    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

    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" 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

    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.

    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!

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

    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

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

    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.

    You will not be disappointed with this choice. A unique menu that us full of surprises. Listen closely to the specials & grab some drinks.

    Food is good. Order half roasted chicken with rice👌 the only problem is everything is too salty, if you sensitive like that, - order white rice instead

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

    Chino cooking. Eat like a pig for cheap. Arroz con Pollo, Boliche Mechado, Ropa Vieja, Escabeche. Wash it down with an Inca Cola. Delicioso!!!!

    People come to eat, not so much dine, at Flor de Mayo. When your order comes to the table, you’ll find yourself gulping it all down, too. Read more

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

    Mix it up with a whole Pollo a la Brasa (Peruvian Chicken) and Squid Fried Rice. Best of both worlds.
