Galangatron & I had lunch here last Sat. G suggested ordering the app, Crema De Rocoto, which I'd never tried before and, boy, am I glad we did. G's descrip: "CDR is made with sliced boiled yellow potatoes covered in sauce of pureed rocoto peppers (a hot red pepper from peru), evaporated milk, cheese, tons of garlic & a few other things". This was served at room temp. I will always order this in the future - the sauce was to die for. Wedges of 2 fresh limes were also provided, along with RL's pungent bright orange, garlicky sauce & the milder light green ?avocado sauce. Another fav we had to order was the Arroz Chaufa de Carne o Pollo. This is just the fluffiest, lightest, most flavorful rice dish I have ever had, and we never would have tried it if Autopi hadn't suggested it at another lunch. It is just bursting with roasted nuggets of pollo a la brasa, beef/pork, veggies, soft cooked scrambled egg, etc. I was the happy recipient of the leftovers on this one & it reheated beautifully. We also tried the Bistek a la Criolla for the 1st time - a thin piece of medium/well steak covered w/sauteed peppers, tomatoes, onions, cilantro w/a timbale of plain rice. It was ok, but wouldn't order this again. To finish up, we had another fav, Mazzamora Morada, of which nothing was left. Can't wait to go back when more peeps are in town for their amazing cerviche, etc.
