  1. I missed the review. Was it reviewed by John Long? Where is the restaurant? I don't even know what Peruvian food is, but I'm game to try anything new.

      • City finally gets taste of Peruvian food
      Northeast Ohio restaurants offer great diversity, and it just got greater with the addition of Machu Picchu, a Peruvian restaurant in the City Club Building, at 850 Euclid Ave., Cleveland. The restaurant's owner, Eryka Accordino, said she is proud to bring Ohio its first Peruvian restaurant. It certainly should keep the several thousand Peruvians in Northeast Ohio happy as well.

      as for peruvian food, here is a link all about it and w/ pics too. let me add that the chicken alone will tranform you it is so good!

    2. We have a Machu Picchu in Boston. Peruvian food is lots of chicken, beef and starch, some ceviche, nothing too out there or spicy.

        i don't think they are related, its just a name similarity. good info in that review tho thanks.

        cleveland has a decent sized peruvian population so a restaurant is waaaay overdue.

          Machu Picchu, I found out from their bartender, is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It's the lost city of the Inca Indians in South America.

      2. thx to the folks over at urbanohio, i found out MACHU PICCHU has a website w/ menu.

        and here 'tis:

        1. The food at Machu Picchu Restaurante is AMAZING!!! They have a valet at dinnertime, which was great because there was also an Indian's game, so I parked for cheap!!!

          I'm pretty picky about what to get, and everything I tried was great. The bartender, Melissa, is hilarious. She explained all of the food to me, in Spanish AND English, and then told me what each one was like.

          She recommended something called a papa rellena appetizer. It was like a baked potato with no skin, stuffed with beef and vegetables. I'm glad I went with her suggestions.For dinner I had arroz con pollo (rice and chicken). I have no idea what's on that rice, but it's so delicious. For dessert, the rice pudding was pretty good too. It was too big though. I had to take it home.
