Peruvian in Central Jersey

Driving down Woodbridge Avenue in Edison I noticed a small restaurant with a sign out front "Pollos a la Brasa." Tonight I decided to stop on my way home for take out. The restaurant, really just a counter with stools, is called La Granja Azul. The food was incredible--much better Peruvian food than I had at an expensive restaurant in DC. They have many specialties--fabulous rotisserie chicken, excellent cerviche (we had the mixto which had crab, shrip, and fish), maduros--fried plantains that were crispy and not greasy, and papa a la huancaina--peruvian style potatoes. They also have various dishes with rice, and a variety of fried fish dishes. Next time we want to try the fried calamari with fried cassava and red onions.

This is a great small place. 2190 Woodbridge ave, 2 blocks frou Route 1. Phone 732-777-7311.

  1. I love hearing about these little hole-in-the-wall places. I may be in Edison next week, in which case I'll try La Granja Azul.

    FYI, here's a fairly recent thread about other Peruvian places in central NJ:
