Prices? and were they there last year? If so, I walked by them daily, sometimes more than once! I think I remember an Angintina grill around that area, never anyone there.

prices are reasonable, quality food

Really like lomo saltado. It does sound odd with french fries and rice topped with strips of beef(or chicken) tomatoe onion and aslightly hot yellow sauce but it really works. I will give them a try. We have bucket load of Peruvian restaurants in these parts.

The place sounds very interesting Sammy. Could you give a few more details of what to expect on the menu? Any favorite dish tried?

Thanks for the info...looks like a great place. I love ceviche. I look forward to seeing their menu. Looks like we'll be enjoying several new restaurants this year. I hope they're open for lunch, too.

I have also been to the restaurant. My husband is Peruvian and we have been to Peru and I can tell you that the food is not only 100% authentic it is absolutely delicious!

If there is anything on the menu that you are unsure about, just ask and I will give you an explanation.

Ask for El Pisco, its a traditional Peruvian cocktail.

I haven't been able to find out when it's open, if ever. First I walked by on Monday evening and they seemed like they had just closed (some people still in, messing with the TV, but closed), then on a Tuesday, then around lunchtime some other day...
