We were walking past the Peruvian restaurant El Jíbaro on St-Hubert just north of Jean-Talon the other day - they have become a byow, so we had visions of some good Peruvian seafood and a good white wine. Across the street, there is another unassuming Peruvian restaurant, Eche pa Echarle.
We remember El Jíbaro as very good from a previous incarnation when it was located at the corner of St-Dominique and Gounod, also in Villeray but in a more out-of-the-way location. A nice family place. But that was almost 10 years ago, and restaurants can decline - or improve - in a far shorter time. Any info about these two or any other Peruvian - or other Latin-American, for that matter, in the area? (Villeray - Petite-Patrie). In general these are of the hole-in-wall variety and mostly target their own national communities.

Both of these are very close to the Jean-Talon métro - closest exit rue St-Hubert (farthest east).
