Fodor's Expert Review Isolina Taberna Peruana

$$$ Barranco Peruvian
Meat lovers wait in line here for a chance to savor chef José del Castillo's slow-cooked osso buco, seco de asado de tira (short-rib stew), or costillar de cerdo a la chorrillana (crispy pork ribs with tomatoes and onions). It's the kind of food Peruvians have eaten for centuries, impeccably prepared and served in a tavern setting. The menu also includes sangrecita (blood sausage), hígado (liver), mondonguito (tripe stew), and other delicacies. Most plates hold enough food for several people, so share or order a half portion. Starters include some tasty seafood dishes.
