We decided to visit an old favorite spot last weekend – El Rocoto in Cerritos.  They serve great Peruvian food.

If you’ve never tried Peruvian food (what are you waiting for?), it’s South American cuisine with a pronounced Chinese influence.  It’s not uncommon to find fried rice and wonton soup on a Peruvian restaurant’s menu.  Actually, my favorite dish is lomo saltado, which always reminds me of the chow fun I would eat every Sunday with my grandmother in Chinatown.

Bread and dipping sauces

For starters - hot bread and some spicy dipping sauces


Peruvian beer - it was actually very sweet.

Lomo Saltado

Lomo Saltado: ribeye with french fries, onions, tomatoes, cliantro and lime.
