Picanteria La Santitos

Picanteria La Santitos Review

If you ask anyone in Piura the best place to go for typical dishes they'll tell you to go to the nearby town of Catacaos. If you want to stay in town, they'll tell you to come here. Two dining rooms with cracked white walls—one air conditioned, one not—and waitresses in flowing peasant dresses make the setting for Piuran and regional dishes like tamales verdes (green tamales) and seco de chavelo (fried green bananas and pork) memorable. Wash everything down with an algarobbina, a pisco based cocktail flavored with the syrup from the area's algarobbo trees.
