Lima native Don Pedro conceives a menu of authentic Peruvian dishes, many of which are tinged with an American twist. The papa rellena starter kicks off meals with an ensemble of seasoned beef, eggs, and raisins stuffed inside a potato and festooned with a ten-gallon hat of criolla salsa ($5.99). Warmed up appetites can plunge into a lineup of entrees such as lomo saltado, an enticing union of beef, chicken or shrimp, onions, tomatoes, and french fries ($10.95–$11.95), or the seafood jalea dish, which converges in a Bermuda triangle of fried fish, shrimp, and calamari ($13.99). Glasses of sweet moscato wine ($5), bottles of XX Lager ($4), or chalices of margaritas ($5.50) accompany bites, dousing fiery flavors along temperate tongues. During dessert, the smooth aromas of algoarrobina ice cream ($4.99), made from a coffee-like syrup culled from the carob tree, filter sweetly through the dining room like the air kisses of a Liman grandmother.
the restaurant is deceptively large and sparkling clean, with plenty of seating and a bright, modern décorJacqueline Kuder, Tucson Weekly, 3/3/11
I ordered the Lomo Saltado … The beef was so tender, and the vegetables were cooked just the right amount.Kenny N., Yelp, 8/10/11
