Lot's of interesting items on the menu. I had a black bean soup followed by a Peruvian tamale with sides of rice, beans and plantains. The beans were amazingly good. The tamale came with some lime marinated red onions. My request for hot sauce was answered with a firey homemade peanut hot sauce. My girlfriend who wasn't feeling as adventurous had a chicken quesadilla, but I tried some of it and it was delicious.

One negative, I went back the next day for lunch with my mom to try the Pollo a la Brasa, as seen on the neon sign that attracted me to the place, but they said it wasn't ready yet, even though it was 12:30 and the item was on the lunch menu. My mom then tried to order the tripe from the lunch menu, but they apparently were out of that too. The food at lunch didn't seem as outstanding as the food at dinner, so I'd suggest trying the place for dinner. Also, the choice of beer is sadly limited to Corona or Heineken.
Please report back if you go.

Also, I'm new to Peruvian and Ecuadorian food, any reccomendations (what's with the spaghetti dishes)? Or better yet, the guys running the place are Bolivian, what Bolivian dishes should I convince them to make for me?
