There are combinations you can ask for, and taste all the region flavors: Seco de Chavelo, Majado de Yuca, Carne Aliñada, Tamalitos Verdes, etc. The restaurant is located three blocks from the plaza de armas (main park of the city).

It's mostly a local food restaurant, so if you're looking forward to getting a taste of Peruvian cuisine this is definitely a good place to do so... If you want something a little spicy try the " tacu tacu " which is basically "arroz Moro" (Cuban) but spicy as I said, but not to much anyway. Everything I've tried from... More

If you are looking for Classic Peruvian food in Piura, this is the spot. After dozens of trips to Piura, I am disappointed if I do not eat here at least one meal per trip. Walking distance from the Plaza de Armas and the central hotels. Get there early if you want a seat for lunch. It fills up fast,... More
