Fodor's Expert Review Picanteria La Santitos

$ Piura Peruvian Fodor's Choice

Ask anyone in Piura the best place in town to go for typical dishes, and they'll tell you to come here. Two dining rooms—one air-conditioned, one not—with cracked white walls and waitresses in flowing peasant dresses form the backdrop for regional dishes like tamales verdes (green tamales) and seco de chavelo (fried green bananas and pork). Wash everything down with algarrobina, a pisco-based cocktail flavored with the syrup from the area's algarrobo trees.
