I took this from the menu page of our local Peruvian restaurant, El Tondero. Out of site, out of mind, I hadn’t been here in some time so thanks for jogging my memory. It’s an excellent restaurant that always served very good dishes. I left the spelling as is but I removed the prices.

Peruvians serve potatoes in every way possible. They are proud of their potatoes. When in Peru we ate alpaca steak. Guinea pig was another big menu item but we never had the opportunity to try them. [:)]
For a coctail drink ask for a Pisco Sour. If a true Peruvian restaurant they should serve it. It is excellent if made right.
Ceviche is commonly found on Peruvian menus, along with many potato dishes. In Miami, we discovered Salmon y Salmon a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Atlanta has two very good Peruvian restaurants also – Machu Pichu and Contigu Peru. I find Peruvian to be one of the most enjoyable of the South American cuisines.
Guinea pig on a stick is always a good bet. [:D]
Seriously though, there is a Peruvian place in St. Louis called Mango and it is excellent. Empanadas tend to be pretty good. I last had an unusual dish of chicken and potatoes in a curry sauce… kind of a Thai feel to it.
I think ceviche is like a national dish. There’s one Peruvian restaurant here with like 11 different ceviches on the menu. Inca Kola I understand is produced specifically to drink with ceviche.
Check out this article on Peruvian cuisine in Wikipedia (which reads a little like it was written by a travel bureau). Looks like you’ll have some interesting choices.
Reviews of Peruvian restaurants posted on our local restaurant review site frequently mention that loma saltado.
Thanks, jlaurette and welcome to RF. You’ll find this a terrific site with lots of wonderful people and information. [:D]

We just had a lovely woman(from Peru) staying with us for 2 weeks, and she made us a very traditional Peruvian dish, Lomo Saltado. It is rice, cover with fried potatoes, sort of like steak fries. Then topped with a wonderful tender mix of cubes of sirloin, tomatoes, onions and cilantro. I think that is basically all that was in it. It was absolutely delicious.
Help! Mrs QFan and I have been invited to eat at a restaurant that serves Peruvian food. I know absolutely NOTHING about Peru except that it’s in S America. What types of dishes should I look for that would characterize Peruvian cuisine? [:p][:p]
