Peruvian recommendations in Northern NJ (Kearny/Harrison/East Newark/Paterson)?

I'm looking for some top-notch, authentic Peruvian restaurants in Northern New Jersey. I know that there are a bunch of Peruvian eateries in western Hudson County (Kearny, Harrison, East Newark) and I have also heard about a large Peruvian enclave in Paterson (Passaic County).

Can anyone recommend a few Peruvian spots in these towns or elsewhere in North Jersey? I'm open to anything - hole-in-the-wall spots that specialize in one dish only (ceviche, roast chicken, etc) as well as places with larger, more varied menus.

Decor and ambience aren't important to me, but I don't want to go to any watered down, Americanized eateries.

The one place I've heard a few good things about is Oh! Calamares on Kearny Ave in Kearny:

Has anyone been to this place? If so, what did you think, and what dishes are recommended?

Thanks in advance for any tips.
