The owner of this restaurant, Isabel Alvarez, has authored several cookbooks. The antique cooking vessels hanging on the walls reflect her passion for traditional Peruvian cuisine. Start with one of various cebiches or chupe de camarones (a creamy river prawn soup) if in season, then move on to arroz con pato (rice and duck with a splash of dark beer), congrio sudado (a tender whitefish in a spicy broth), or huatia sulcana (a traditional beef
stew). Weekend lunch buffets offer an excellent opportunity to sample a variety of Peruvian cuisine.
