This longstanding local institution serves up excellent and traditional Peruvian cuisine in a converted old home (exposed brick walls and red tile floors), just off of Paseo Colón. The menu is extensive, with a wide range of ceviches and other cold and hot appetizers. The parihuela (a delicious seafood soup almost big and rich enough for a full meal) is a specialty. The house drink is the classic Peruvian pisco sour, made in a blender with pisco, lime juice, and an egg white.
