Peruvian in Atlanta?

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.

        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.
