Juicy red peppers, bright green spinach- and basil-flecked pasta, and golden-brown fried fish all come together atop plates at Pisco Sour Piolyn Jr. to create eye-catching Peruvian specialities with a Chinese twist. Chifa cuisine infuses traditional Chinese dishes with the flavors of Peru, which is extremely popular in Lima. The lengthy menu delivers everything from fresh fish ceviche and churrasco-style rib-eye steak to traditional tacu tacu—a breaded and fried mixture of beans, rice, and your choice of meat or shrimp. To wash down their South American eats, customers can choose from a list of Peruvian wines or stay domestic with a beer or swig of water from the local reservoir. But for those wanting to fully embrace the Peruvian dining experience, a pisco sour is the only way to go. Made from pisco, the traditional Peruvian brandy, and a mix of lemon juice and sugar, the drink is a refreshing way to cap off the meal.
