Peruvian in Atlanta?

  • 7

After enjoying a Peruvian restaurant in LA and after trying to cook some of the dishes at home, it's time to see if my versions hold up to the real thing.
Thus the question.

  1. Contigu Peru and Mambo's Cafe are both excellent. I have eaten most recently at the Contigu Peru on Chamblee Dunwoody. Mambo/s Cafe is in Alpharetta. Depending on where you are located - either is worth a visit.

    1. Machu Picchu on Buford Highway has a good variety of Preuvian dishes - including my favorite, Cau cau.

      1. Las Brasas in Decatur. http://www.lasbrasasdecatur.com/

        Tiny little shack. Good folks own it. Good food.

        1. I'm looking for GOOD Aji de Gallina and Papa a la HuancaĆ­na. A lot of places they are just bland like they didnt put any Aji in it. Please help out a craving Pregnant woman :)

          1. I second Las Brasas. Inexpensive but very very good and filling.

              I like Las Brasas, but it's not really a restaurant; more of a take out place for really good chicken. I would have thought it to be Mexican.

            2. The Peruvian joint in the Assi Plaza food court in Duluth expanded their menu lately, so that may be worth checking out. So far I tried ceviche, the duck dish and the pork chop dish, all quite good, although their papa a la huancaina is not as spectacular as the one at Las Brasas. Prices are in the $10-12 range except for ceviche which was over $15 I think.
