What You'll Get
Like Sesame Street, Peru's culture is shaped by a diverse population of indigenous people, transplants, and cookie-addicted puppets. Taste-test cultural fusion with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Peruvian fare and drinks at Sabor Latino in Weston.
A mélange of multinational flavors, the traditional Peruvian provisions prepared by Sabor Latino represent the country's distinctive cuisine, blending Spanish, African, Chinese, and Incan flavors.
Subaqueous starters set taste buds sailing with delicacies such as pulpo al olivo, octopus in an ocean of olive sauce ($11.99), and chupe de camarones, a creamy coalescence of shrimp, rice, egg, and cheese ($12.99). Disenchanted pirates delight in land-dwelling eats, such as causa rellena limeña, featuring double-decked scoops of mashed potatoes layering cuts of chicken ($5.99), or the tallarin saltado, a Peruvian-style chow mein topped off with chicken or beef ($9.99). In order to quell sweet-teeth picket lines, negotiate tasty postdinner terms such as guanabana ice cream ($5.99) and Peruvian chocolate confections ($2.50), which leave mouths happier and more satisfied than a clown on a pogo stick.
Sabor Latino's colorful dishes find spirited sanctuary at the restaurant's waterfront venue. With its own palm tree growing through the center and a white-columned periphery, the outdoor patio hosts diners against a breezy backdrop. Further jollification juts out from an ever-changing event schedule, highlighted by karaoke nights, live Latin-music concerts, and viewings of Sisyphus pushing his boulder around Machu Picchu.

About Sabor Latino
Sabor Latino packs the Incan, Spanish, African, and Asian flavors that influence Peruvian cuisine into a menu of traditional dishes. Plates of fresh ceviche cure pieces of fish, shrimp, or black mussels in lime juice with a mixture of vegetables, and causas stack grilled octopus and other meats between mashed-potato patties. Heartier fare includes lomo saltado, tender skirt steak sautéed with tomatoes and cilantro, as well as corvine a la criolla, a breaded sea bass topped with a salsa of fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and lime. The cozy restaurant creates an intimate atmosphere as patrons sit around small white-clothed tables. A wrought-iron fence surrounds the brick and stone patio, where guests enjoy refreshing breezes and views of the nearby lake as well as live entertainment Thursday-Saturday evenings after 8PM.
