Owner and chef Raymi Mosca prepares a plethora of palate-pleasers to excite appetites with exotic flavors from his native Peru. The menu tutors uninformed taste buds in traditional fare such as the papa a la huancaina, a classic recipe featuring boiled potatoes bathed in a creamy and mild aji pepper sauce ($7.95). Savor the fruits of the sea with the arroz con mariscos, a Peruvian paella of rice simmered in a fish broth jacuzzi with mussels, octopus, squid, and braised submarines ($15.95) or the ceviche de pescado, fresh whitefish chunks marinated in lime juice and plated alongside sliced yams, onions, and corn on the cob ($12.95).
Exercise stiff jaws on piquant proteins such as the lomo saltado, beef tenderloin strips sautéed with tomatoes and onions over french fries and rice ($14.95) or the chaufa de pollo, fried rice cooked with soy sauce and a pinch of ginger and mixed with chopped chicken and green onions ($11.95). Mi Peru shelters diners in a inviting, spacious dining room lined with large windows to warm diners with sunlight during the day and the wishes of stars who wish upon people at night.
