Peruvian + Chinese = Perunese

This is one of my favorite eateries. The food isn’t special, nor is the decor, and the service can be quite slow at times, but it has a nice family feeling and the food is always tasty. At times the dishes can be a bit salty, but I always leave feeling satisfied and very full—the portions are huge.

The menu is also great if you have a mixed crowd. Half of the menu is Peruvian food and the other half is Chinese food. You might think it odd, but I’ve been told it’s because the owners are a married couple, where the wife is Peruvian and the husband Chinese. ohhhh…it makes sense now.

Overall, this place is definitely worth a try.

Ceviche Mixto

This dish is excellent! It includes fish, octopus, squid, yucca, and roasted corn kernals. The squid stood out the most to me, as it was extremely tender and flavorful.

Pollo Saltado

I usually order this dish by default. It’s a common dish that can be found at many peruvian and cuban restaurants. I usually order mine with french fries mixed in. The Aji (green hot sauce) really adds complexity and a nice kick.

Lomo Saltado

Same as the Pollo Saltado, but with beef strips.

Wonton Soup

I know the wonton soup seems expensive, but it’s worth it. Large chunks of chicken, huge wonton, and a savory broth. This soup is quite large and very filling. I usually get it when I’m feeling cold or sick.


Do not order this. It’s basically frozen orange soda stuck in cheap red wine.

Deliciously Exquisite!

Ive tried several Peruvian restaurants but this little joint is by far the best Ive had. Pollo Inka is good, but Roccoto is much better. I love their Papa ala huancaina………its delicious! Highly recommend this place!
