Looking for Authentic Peruvian Food in Broward like Chalan on the Beach in Miami.

I had a great experience with Chalan on the Beach in Miami. I am in Broward more often. Does anyone know if a good/similar Peruvian restaurant in Broward county?

    Try Goyo el Pollo on Dixie and Pembroke Rd. in Hollywood. The mixed ceviche is very good

      that looked like the closest thing i could find but it didn't have any tacu tacu dishes which i just became enamored with. Still seems like a good suggestion though, thanks.

        Las Totoritas on Pines blvd. has a pretty good array of tacu tacu as does Peñon Limeño in Cooper City. Gran Chimu in Davie is very good and slightly more upscale than the others.

        Interesting note about Peñon Limeño: Check Please South Florida featured them earlier in the week that we coincidentally discovered the restaurant, and they were utterly unable to handle a full house. We learned about the CPSF feature from the couple at a nearby table who were also waiting for food. It was quite excellent though, we'll try again on a quieter evening.

        Chowfather, have you been to Goyo el Pollo lately? On our last visit they changed the menu and it wasn't as good as it used to be.

          I've been there since the menu change and was glad to see some new additions. The mixed ceviche was great as usual and I really enjoyed the tripe dish. I haven't been there in about a month though so maybe they made some changes

        I’m not familiar with Chalan, but if you’re willing to venture across the Broward border into Boca Raton, there’s an excellent Peruvian restaurant on Federal Highway – La Rosa Nautica. They offer a fine selection of Peruvian steak and seafood dishes including the Tacu Tacu you desire. You’ll also find a variety of different ceviche dishes and they have one of our favorites - Anticuchos (grilled chunks of beef heart) as an appetizer.

        There’s a discussion of La Rosa Nautica on this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/553411

        And here’s the recent New Times review: http://tinyurl.com/6ab5n2f

        Karen and I go for lunch or dinner several times a month and have never been disappointed. You can find the menu here: http://www.idine.com/details.htm?merc...

        La Rosa Nautica, 515 NE 20th Street, Boca Raton, FL 33431, (561) 296-1413

          Does anyone have any thoughts on El Gran Inka? There's a great Peruvian family restaurant in Naples called Inca Kitchen and I'm hoping this approaches the same quality. I am looking for a lunch spot around Aventura/Hallendale/Hollywood on Sunday and it sounded intriguing. There didn't seem to be many options other than chains. Any other suggestions would be welcome.

            With no other suggestions for lunch we went to El Gran Inka and thorougly enjoyed it. We didn't have many dishes but loved the ceviche, sashimi like tiradito, and the baked bay scallops on their shells with melted parmesan. A cold potato dish with a peruvian cheese sauce(thankfully not nacho) was just ok. If I lived in the area, I would go back for dinner and try more dishes. The quality of the cooking reminds me of a great Peruvian restaurant in Naples called Inca Kitchen.

              I have not beenn to Chalan, but we are big fans of La Perla in Weston. We also enjoyed El Gran Inka, but La Perla is closer for us,
