    The only Peruvian restaurant I knew (Sol de Peru) in Upper Darby closed a few years back. He might enjoy the Venezuelan Sazon around 9th and Spring Garden...

      Have you been to Chifa? I realize it is a Garces place but it is a Puruvian-Chinese hybrid so if you haven't checked it out it may be worthwhile. And if you have, what is your friend's opinion?

      The only new place I know if in that vein is Koo Zee Doo in NoLibs which is Puertogeuese. I dunno if that counts as Latin or not, but there may be interest.

      There are a bunch of other cool Latin spots that are not new like Xochitl and Lolita but I guess you've been there?

        cuba libre? it's my mom's favorite restaurant in the city. I've only had leftovers, but they were yummy.
