Tradiciones Peruanas in Sunnyvale
We had an excellent lunch at Tradiciones Peruanas (byline: "Peruvian Seafood") in Sunnyvale today, and I'm surprised this place hasn't been mentioned on this board. We ordered the antichuchos (grilled beef hearts) and pescado sudado--a whole steamed fish in a sauce with tomatoes, red peppers, and onions. Everything was really good, and the fish was fresh. I was especially gratified to see whole fish on the menu--I can't take a seafood restaurant seriously unless if they're only serving fillets (yeah I'm looking at you, Cantankerous Fish). Next time I'll have to try their pescado a lo macho (?)--a fish fillet smothered in other seafood--or their seafood rice.
Service was helpful and friendly--we're not really familiar with the cuisine, but the waiter was happy to describe the dishes and make recommendations, even after my toddler sneezed in his face.
It's located in the same strip mall off Lawrence as Hong Kong Saigon Harbor, Giovanni's, and a number of other asian eateries; for such a dingy strip mall, it's really developed into quite a foodie destination.
Try it and let's hear what you think.
