hhc | Oct 12, 200810:11 PM     5

This place is Expensive! For 2 at lunch on a Sun afternoon it was $52 + $4.42 tax = $56.42 Before Tip! Can you say Sticker Shock!

Eat all the FREE chips/plantains - that's the Only way to fill up here. 3 sauces given - all pretty Bland! Green sauce - bland, Yellow-bland, Orange-Bland!

You get tiny amounts of food people. For a 1/2 order of Cebiche Clasico $9 you get maybe 4 tiny pieces of Calif. halibut w/ tiny slices of red onions & habanero pepper leche de tigre w/ Peruvian corn & yam. Full portion is $15. Drink the sauce - you paid for it & it was recommended.

Another dish we got: Cabiche chifa $9 - again that's a half order which had 4 tiny Yellowtail tuna w/ peanuts, scallions, ginger, pickled carrots & daikon, wonton strips & cilantro in sesame leche de tigre. Drink the sauce since you paid for it & waitress recommends it. Maybe so u can fill up too.

Sopa Parihuela -$11 - it's a Bland soup w/ mussels, calamari, clams, mahi mahi, ginger & red onion. Tasted like tomato sauce w/ the seafood in it. Bland!

Arroz Norteno $19 - a bland rice dish w/ 2 mussels, some other seafood, yellow sauce, green rice.

Only got 1 drink: Chicha Morada $5 on menu, but on Bill only $4. Classic Peruvian refreshment made of maiz morado (purple corn). It's sweet, but not too sweet. I liked it, but I also had it before in other Peruvian places way cheaper.

It's also Way Too Loud in there. If you like to shout when you want to talk to your companions then come here. Otherwise, Skip it.

Two unisex bathrooms in the main lobby - One on the Left, One on the Right.

Not recommended.
