El Otro Peñoncito

El Otro Peñoncito Review

Three generations have had a hand in this family business, one of the oldest and most respected restaurants in Ica. Dishing up traditional Peruvian cuisine and the self-proclaimed best pisco sours around, this classic spot is a welcome change from the usual fried chicken and rice joints on every other corner. Local specialties include the pollo a la Iqueña (chicken in a rich pecan, pisco, and spinach sauce) and the traditional papas a la huancaina (potatoes with cheese sauce). Owner Hary Hernandez says he won't accept credit cards, although precious stones, gold, and silver are fine. Art by Iqueño artists adorns the walls.
