This city has just become a better place to live in. After having been in Peru, I always missed their cuisine, which ignored by most people who think they know good cuisine, is actually one of the best of the world.
I will go as far as saying that Peru holds the best cuisine in all of latin america with mexico only trailing behind because their simple tortilla based comfort food satisfies most junk food hungry north americans.
Anyhow, been to Peru, their food ranks as high as italian and french or thai. This restaurant is the only peruvian one ever here (there was one lame attempt at peruvian cuisine in the past but wasn't done right so it quickly went out of business) Peru food is popular all over the world, specially the U.S. You'll find a peru restaurant in odd places like costa rica or germany even but never here in canada. Finally!!!
The seafood will be hard to duplicate. Tried their peruvian ceviche. As good as it gets in Canada. It's like going to Bolivia and trying to cook up some lobster. It will never be the same. However, tried their other dishes. I will keep on going back at least once a month. Just ask the owner what he recommends for the day.
I recommend aji de gallina, lomo saltado, their ceviche of course, arroz con pollo is a safe choice,. However, you need to drop your north america mentality and go for the unusual and definitely eat the bull's heart.
"Anticucho". A real warrior eats the bull heart. So damn tasty. I kept thinking about it for days. Now that I can't remember the flavour i must go back. Best BBQ meat hands down. Have a bite of that, follow it with a bite of potato with their homemade hot sauce (very spicy careful).
Only real food lovers must visit this place, the rest should stick to boston's pizza or spaghetti factory.
