Peruvian Viagra and Beef Heart

Old hound favorite Rincon Limeño has remodeled, and yumyum says the new digs are “really cheery and super clean.” The Peruvian food is as reliably wonderful as ever; the pan-Latin dishes on the menu aren’t quite as inspired. Here’s what to order:

• Beef heart with potato: “For some reason, I thought it would be gamey, but it is not at all, just a good beefy taste,” says Alcachofa.
• Leche de tigre (ceviche juice), which both Wikipedia and Nab say has “stimulatory, aphrodisiacal, hangover-curing effects.”
• Ceviche, which yumyum says is perfect.
Ají de gallina, which is a Peruvian chicken stew in a spicy cheese sauce.
• Any of the potato dishes: causa rellena (yellow mashed potato balls stuffed with chicken salad), papa a la huancaína (potatoes in a creamy, cheese sauce).
