Fodor's Review

Eating here may by the closest you come to dining with a Peruvian family, because this family-run restaurant serves the kind of traditional dishes that Limeños have eaten for generations. Located in a massive, red adobe house at the top of the steps to the Puente de los Suspiros, and decorated with a hodgepodge of historic photos and posters of rock legends, the restaurant is the childhood home of Hernan Vega. He and other local musicians often perform traditional música criolla at night. Vega doesn't strive for gourmet; he's happy with authentic. Come here for standards such as anticuchos (cow's-heart brochettes served with corn on the cob), or sudado (fish fillet in spicy broth). For dessert, try picarones (sweet-potato doughnuts served with molasses) or suspiro a la limeña (an egg-yoke pudding with a dash of cinnamon).
